TECNOLUMEN was founded by Walter Schnepel in Bremen in 1980. At first, the company produced only one lamp, namely, the "Wagenfeld" table lamp that was originally designed by Professor Wilhelm Wagenfeld at the Bauhaus in 1924. The company’s palette of products was soon augmented by additional designs from the Bauhaus era, including items by Gyula Pap, Hans Przyrembel and Marianne Brandt.
Today, TECNOLUMEN not only produces re-editions of Bauhaus designs, but also crafts products by contemporary designers. TECNOLUMEN is currently the world’s leading manufacturer of products designed during the Bauhaus era.
