More than eighty years ago, Walter von Nessen introduced his first important lighting concept — the swing arm lamp for table, floor and wall applications. The year was 1927. That form should follow function was then on the frontier of design. Von Nessen was among its most perceptive pioneers.


Through the years, our design parameters have not changed. We remain perfectionists whose primary market is the professional who appreciates what sets our products apart.


With us, performance is the ultimate criterion. Expressions will relate to the times and the materials we fashion. But clean lines and classically pleasing proportions are the invariables.


Our search for superior materials takes us to the quarries of Zaragoza, the marble finishers of Carrara, the glass makers of Murano, the brass mills of Dusseldorf and the looms of Kortrijk. Handheld buffing, polishing and finishing techniques complete the quality formula.


Our new website is an extension of our philosophy of giving our customers simple facts, clean graphics and unadorned data. Our lamps are created by designers and our clients are, themselves, designers. Surely our website should reflect these priorities!
