how it all began ...

Photography, Light and Lighting interested me for a long time. At the beginning I have lighting equipment for me and my friends designed and self-manufactured. After a lot of praise and encouragement of the way to his own label, including online shop was no longer far. The inspiration for my lamps and objects come from the life: whether at the flea market or on the street - it's unbelievable how many ideas waiting to be discovered!
