"My lights are strongly influenced by creative processes in architecture. The illuminants LED and OLED have completely opened new ways for design. In my designs I always pay attention to harmony between content and form. What is feasible? What makes sense when working with the new technologies? In which direction are we going?"
In 2006 the company benwirth licht was founded in Munich. Our studio is workshop, showroom and "science lab", it is a room to experiment, to build and to exhibit. This is where we design exclusive lights and lighting systems, customized lights and one-offs, with a main focus on LED illumination. Moreover, we develop lighting solutions for private homes and public spaces such as hotels, restaurants, banks and shops.

Meystyle is a London-based design company specialising in LED wallpaper, an exclusive technology pioneered in 2004.
Meystyle's mission is to rescue walls from the background, integrating bold patterns with LEDs and crystals to create a deep visual experience that transforms walls and wallpaper into works of art.
Unique bespoke solutions
At Meystyle each roll of LED wallpaper is individually hand-made, which enables us to make patterns that are tailored to their environments. The client has the possibility to customise virtually any aspect of the final design: from its scale to the colour scheme, from the number of incorporated LEDs to the way the pattern is laid out to complement other fixtures in the room.
Modern day artisanry
We pride ourselves of fostering what we call 'modern day artisan techniques.' At Meystyle technology fuses with the tradition of hand-made crafts. We fit each crystal and LED by hand, using exclusive techniques to ensure the best results. We only use the very best materials available on the market. Every single roll is individually tested and packaged by our team to make sure it complies with our high quality standards.
A wide range of exclusive materials
We are at the forefront of digital printing, adopting the latest technologies available on the market to transfer our designs onto wall covering substrates. We use both Eco-solvent and HP Latex inks which represent the very best options in terms of quality of the print and eco-friendliness. We also pride ourselves of introducing a range of innovative materials including luminous natural silks, metallic meshes and soft cottons, that add a touch of warmth and luxury to any environment.

Sometimes words are just not not needed because the eyes witness: well, the indescribable.
The first 3 words we usually utter after seeing objects of sublime beauty is: 'I want that...'
Once again DesignBuzz announces a lighting creator from the Czech Republic. Brokis is one of a new generation of Czech lighting creators bravely pioneering some of the most original offerings available today.
The company has won many international awards for it's products, it's creations are present in over 70 countries around the world, it employs over 100 people in two traditional glassworks... one look at it's products and it is easy to see why the 10 year old company has seen such rapid success.
Not only is Brokis on a mission to change the future through bold contemporary lighting, it is also very much focused on preserving a glorious history. Concepts by thought-leading Czech and International Designers are brought to life by master glassmakers trained to the most exacting standards of traditional Bohemian glass production- in this manner every piece of lighting from the company connects the visionaries of today with the knowledge of craftsmen and women from centuries past.
Brokis introduces itself as follows: 'Brokis stands for the synthesis of exquisite design, superior quality, and the remarkable craftsmanship of Bohemian glass artisans.'
It's this simple; lighting from Brokis will contribute in a major way to the transformation of any project into a cutting-edge contemporary space but it is the - in this case - not so intangible presence of history that will truly enrich your soul.
Design at it's best grabs one and plugs it's questions deep into the innermost reaches of our souls. The greatest ingenuity of humankind can only be discovered through the acceptance that no one is born an absolute genius. We reach our peak only through openness to vulnerability and embracing deep humility that allows a talented creator to observe and contemplate like a beginner for painfully long periods until the truly remarkable slowly comes to life.
LASVIT is one such force - their stated mission is to transform glass into breathtaking lighting and design experiences. Every LASVIT project - private or commercial, be it lighting or crystal walls or even sculpture - every project from the Dubai opera house to a boardroom in France - every LASVIT project takes our breath away. Every LASVIT installation brings glass to life.
If there was a Nobel prize for design then these guys and girls from the Czech Republic should get one right away. Check them out at www.lasvit.com
Niclas Jørgensen is a young and very talented Danish designer who is fast making a name for himself with his silently rebellious lighting masterpieces.
Having developed what has been described as the new Nordic approach, Niclas successfully strikes a balance between traditional Scandinavian design philosophy and a modern outwardly seeking minimalism that would be just as at home in Madrid as it would in Malmo.
