Greater freedom in lighting.
More emotion in illumination.
At AmbienTec, we are always thinking of ways to enrich the relationship between people and light. For example, through questioning the overly bright illumination of contemporary spaces, we were able to produce a series of lamps that provide a gentler light–one that preserves the unique ambience of the night. We also pursue new forms of domestic LED and cordless illumination that stimulate the senses, as well as lamp designs that brighten up a living space whether the lamp is switched on or off.
We are also constantly looking for ways to enrich the relationship between people and products. Our products are not intended for mass consumption and short-term use. They are designed to earn a permanent place in the lives of the owners. This is why we put such care into our choice of materials and methods of production, assembling the product to ensure it can be repaired no matter what happens.
At AmbienTec, we believe we can produce illumination that nobody else can.
