We create stories and tell them with light. 

With the help of our technical knowledge, experience, and imagination, we design the effects of natural and artificial light. We systematically transfer and apply this knowledge to architectural projects. This requires planned process management.

Luminaire Design

Planlux team is coming from different backgrounds. This is an advantage for us to have a multidisciplinary work practice. It is also an opportunity to strengthen the product development in the architectural design. 
Light is indispensable to the creation of architecture, furthermore, architecture creates the ground rules for industrial design, particularly in the case of light.
In the process of product development, we consider marketing specifics, production techniques and technical possibilities.
Luminaire development needs to be specific for a reason, for a certain function, to trigger a certain feeling with the consideration of ergonomics and quality.   We assist manufacturers to develop or improve luminaires for both commercial production or be-spoke installations.

We believe natural light is source needs to be harnessed abundantly but carefully. We provide Daylight & Sunlight Analysis, including amount and duration of useful daylight hours, detailed analysis of each space with daylight factor, duration and pinpoint locations of direct sunlight penetration optimization of lighting control system with the integration of useful daylight data, proposals of shading and filter systems.  We use AGI32 software in our studies, one of the most respected software packages in the market.
