Our products will be presented online on European market based on standard dimensions for such products but it's not excluded to produce these products per order and per customer's wishes.

Lamps are more than pure illuminating of the area, they represent very important way to have good atmosphere and making an ambiente in your own home. Beside of that, light has an important role in a way how people creates image about some interior of the house and that is the reason why we choose to work exclusively with high quality and natural material.

Every piece is interesting and unique on it's own way and it represents sprecial inspiration for us to combine the light in a home as well as in the office.

It's very important to know that all of our products are made by persons with disabilities. The importance of the company for social community is even greater because it employs persons with disabilities who don't have the possibility of employment under equal conditions on the labour market in relation to the remaining working capacity which makes our products unique.
