Implementing light into products

Lighting technology upgrades consumer products. The perceived quality of technical products is increases by integrating lighting elements. In product development, light takes on a variety of tasks: Illumination of surfaces, fulfilment of functions in control elements, ambient lighting and accentuation of the design language.

Product lighting – increasing product sales with light

Lighting technology makes it possible to upgrade products functionally and optically. As a sales-promoting element, lighting elements can decisively increase desire and the perceived product quality.
