illumination Physics Europe

 

Our deliberate and purposeful strategy for the European architectural lighting market has always occupied a key part of our medium-term planning for the growth of illumination Physics.

We are delighted to announce the opening of our new European office, strategically located in Germany.

Why get it almost right when, with a little more effort, the lighting could be perfect!

We set performance milestones that were mandatory precursors to the activation of our journey to the West.

We decided that we must first demonstrate our ability to successfully manage several mega projects simultaneously, within our own region.

We have done so.
We decided that we should put in place a manufacturing capability that, in terms of fabrication capacity, could far exceed the illumination demands of at least two of the world’s largest structures, at the same time.

We have done so.

The final component was always going to be about personnel. illumination Physics has a very particular business culture. We have a deliberate policy of being project orientated rather than following the industry tradition founded in the limitations of previously existing data sheets.

Our mantra:

“Why get it almost right when, with a little more effort, the lighting could be perfect!”

The lighting industry is sprinkled with visionaries, but the layer is thin and illumination Physics takes lateral thinking to another level.
