The German manufacturer Domus Lighting was established in 1966 by Henning Brom in Bad Munder. It took another six years for the company to establish itself and finally move to its current headquarters in 1972. The company which began in an old saw mill now has managed to garner an international reputation of high quality and beauty. The company has been famous for being able to transform the bulky and chunky wood into light fittings which are delicate and exquisite. The company has also been experimenting with different types of wood and finishes to get the perfect look for its light fittings.
The company now with the second generation of the family continues to pursue high quality and excellence in manufacturing of light fittings. The company believes in its primary philosophy, ‘light for living’ which helps the company produce light fittings that not only produce illumination but also help improve the lives of the customers by adding beauty and elegance. The designs of the company are such that the illumination provided are soothing and relaxing to the eyes thus providing a high level of comfort to the users.
The company has always nurtured its employees which is its main asset. The company also employs an impressive list of designers and design studios from across Europe. The company provides absolute creative freedom to its designers and also encourages other employees to provide their inputs and opinions to improve processes around the company. The light fittings are completely produced in Germany, from designing, producing to marketing every effort of the company originates in its native country.
The company has an equally impressive portfolio of table lamps, floor lamps, pendant lights, ceiling lights and suspension lights. The Bobby collection has featured on the catalogues of the company since 1985 when it was first released. Based on the concept of ring lights surrounded by a ring of wood, these lights have had the old world charm of the era they were designed in yet have a timeless beauty about them.
The company however has made certain minor changes to keep up with the changing times and has hence introduced an LED version of the lamps. The Bobby collection is a family of matching lights which also consists of floor lamps, wall mounted lights, ceiling lights and suspension lights apart from the table lamps.
The company markets and sells its products through a close network of agents and representatives located in various locations across 25 different countries. The company has seen meteoric rise in past few years and Domus Lighting with its stunning designs is bound to remain at the top for many years to come. This experimentation with materials and designs began at the very inception of the company which resulted in its first collection of light fittings to a worldwide audience in 1981. The Candela collection released as the result of this experimentation still features on the company’s catalogues till date on popular demand. The company subsequently came out with other popular collections in 1985 and 1988. The nineties saw the company expanding overseas with a huge customer base in Middle East, North America and Asia.
