In 1934, Hans and Verna Bergström started their company ateljé Lyktan in Skåne, a region of southern Sweden. Ever since they started, ateljé Lyktan has continued to supply its partners and customers with high-quality luminaries for both outdoor and indoor use, always with a strong passion for timeless Nordic design.
The international breakthrough for the company came in 1972, when 16,000 luminaires were delivered to the Olympic village for the Munich Olympics, a demonstration that ateljé Lyktan has always been responsive to customer wishes and market requirements. In the Studio they produce bespoke one-off luminaires for prestigious projects in close collaboration with lighting designers and architects.

Alongside the values of innovation and humanity, iGuzzini is committed to enhancing architecture and spaces, and improving the quality of daily life and well-being for everyone.
iGuzzini’s drive for innovation is strong, exemplified by the very first biodynamic luminaire in 1993. And the first ever linear-recessed luminaire with miniaturized circular emission, the Laser Blade was launched in 2012, designed with a clear mission to increase visual comfort. Today, they continue to develop new innovative solutions with a strong-rooted passion for design.

Lighting solutions for selected applications, tailored to local market demands.
Professional focuses mainly on indoor applications for local and neighboring markets. The brands work closely together with local partners on project specifications to deliver full and complete solutions. Local production and product development allow for tailored solutions with bespoke products delivered with short lead times.
Our brands include Arlight, Eagle Lighting and Whitecroft.
Arlight was founded in Ankara in 1991 by Cemil Arli. The business started out as a small workshop manufacturing cable trays. Always focused on customer needs, Cemil Arli identified an opportunity and took on the lighting segment with products tailored to the local market.
With quality being a top priority, continuous investments in product development and manufacturing have been made. An example is their internationally accredited lighting laboratory. Arlight focuses mainly on indoor applications such as office areas, education and healthcare, supplemented with a selective local outdoor range in order to cater for individual projects.
Eagle Lighting was established in Melbourne, Australia, in 1972, and has developed into a leading brand throughout Australasia. With full control over the value chain, they can efficiently develop, manufacture, and customize products tailored to the local market with short lead times.
In close collaboration with partners and customers, Eagle Lighting develops innovative indoor lighting solutions focused on offices, education and healthcare. Being based in the same city as our lighting control brand, Organic Response, they are leaders in adopting new smart lighting control solutions.
Founded in 1945 by Tom Freer, Whitecroft Lighting has become one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of commercial lighting, focused on tailored solutions for office, education and healthcare applications. They aim to design and deliver complete projects, whether it’s about operating theatre lighting in hospitals, or lighting with integrated acoustic properties for schools.
Regardless of the challenge, Whitecroft strives to provide the highest quality luminaries with a strong focus on reducing their environmental impact. They appreciate the benefits of working closely with their partners and customers to ensure that optimum and cost-effective solutions are achieved, from initial design to complete project.
Specialty lighting solutions for critical infrastructure and industry applications.
Infrastructure provides lighting solutions for environments with specific requirements for installation, durability and robustness. The companies are world leaders in their areas and highly experienced in finding the best solutions for every project and customer. The majority of their sales are within Europe with additional global installations.
Our brands include Designplan Lighting, i-Valo and Veko.
Designplan was established in the UK in 1963 by Arthur Cumper and John Barber. With their extensive lighting industry experience, they saw an opportunity in areas where robust and waterproof fittings were needed. Their aim was to design robust luminaries for challenging environments with high-ingress protection and an extra level of vandal resistance.
Today, all of their products are based on that initial concept; always developed for challenging environments such as transport, custodial and social housing, secure health and urban exterior applications. Designed with removeable gear trays to ensure easy maintenance and technology upgrades, their fittings are engineered to withstand the test of time.
I-Valo started within the famous Iittala glass factory in Iittala, Finland, and in 1963 it was launched as a separate brand. During the 1970s, I-Valo started looking into reliable industrial lighting, mainly driven by a need within their own glass factory and the surrounding paper mill industry. At that time nobody was making a luminaire that was suitable for harsh industrial conditions.
I-Valo has since focused on luminaires that can withstand challenges such as dust particles, corrosion, unusual ambient temperatures, and mechanical damage. From their very first beginning, they have been considered the best partner for luminaries which are designed and tested for heavy industry and extreme conditions. Although they have a strong base in the Nordics, they have completed projects in more than 40 countries worldwide.
Founded in 1975, in Schagen, the Netherlands, Veko Lightsystems specialize in linear LED lighting for industrial spaces. Always with a focus on energy efficiency and durability, they have a long history of innovation. They were the first in the world to introduce a linear lighting system with integrated cable ducts, IP 65 protection, and many more innovations.
Veko offers a unique system where products are manufactured for specific projects, supplied with codes and pre-assembled, without packaging. This reduces assembly and installation time significantly. Veko’s lighting solutions are designed for open areas such as distribution centers, warehouses and light industries, but can be found everywhere from swimming pools to freezer facilities and retail stores.
