An important point is, I find, to highlight our affinity to the historical Bauhaus movement. Bauhaus as the home of classical modernism amalgamates architecture, crafts and art in what many consider to be an ideal manner. Although Bauhaus really only existed from 1919 to 1933, its influence has endured to the present day. Of course, there are plenty of other movements that have played an important role in the world of design and craftsmanship, such as functionalism, Art Deco and Ettore Sottsass’ Memphis Group, to name just a few. This diversity is also reflected in the color and shape of the respective luminaires. What may be color atrocities and ornamental crimes for one beholder are beautiful and provide peace of mind for another. Although we do not have sovereignty of interpretation about what “good design” is, we have found our own style.

Dear Customers and Business Partners,

Everything, or almost everything, has already been said on corona (COVID-19). The pictures and reports in the classic and “social” media speak loud and clear. With the necessary adaptations to the current situation, we will work as long as we can and the authorities allow. We are still fully capable of delivering products. For our non-commercial customers, we have extended the period in which a contract can be revoked up to 30 days instead of 14 days. For our commercial customers, we remain available via telephone and e-mail. It is vitally important now for all of us to act responsibly and rationally, to offer help to those who need it, to stay level-headed, and not to hit the panic button. Let us face the future with determination and confidence.

Cordially,

Christian Schmidt

We are always keen to hear what our customers say about us!

We work for architects, shipyards and clients throughout Europe and support our business partners both as consultants and as suppliers for projects large and small.

██████ has been established on the market for over 20 years as an interior designer for hotels, cruise ships and yachts. In particular, we place great emphasis on the ability to work in a team and the reliability of our suppliers and subcontractors. For us, zenolight is a reliable partner for specific tasks in the field of decorative interior lighting.
Interior design office, Italy
As a manufacturer of exclusive luminaires, we have been successfully established on the international market for almost four decades now. For many years, zenolight has been supplying us with high-quality individual components and assemblies for our luminaire production in ██████. In addition, we make use of technical services such as CAD design and technical documentation
Managing director of a luminaire manufacturer, Germany
We bought a Wagenfeld lamp “WA24” and the glass cube lamp “Cubelight” through the online shop. We had some doubts about payment in advance, but we wanted to take advantage of the additional 5% discount and were not disappointed. After two days, the cartons arrived here in Munich. We have wanted the two lights for a long time and are delighted.
Karin Obermaier, Munich
We found your website on the Internet as part of the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus. For a long time now, we have been looking for the floor standing luminaire DSL 23 by Richard Döcker from 1923. You delivered the lamp promptly and at reasonable terms. We are most pleased – thank you very much.
Torsten Müller, Berlin
As part of the interior design of our newbuilding project ██████ zenolight supplied the decorative lighting for some of the public areas on board. All the luminaires ordered met the required specifications, were of high quality, and were delivered on time to our central warehouse. We particularly appreciated the flexibility and willingness to cooperate in a project phase that was characterized by a tight deadline.
Project manager of a North German shipyard
Our architectural office recently started working with zenolight. We were supported with expertise and pragmatic approaches in the somewhat difficult technical implementation of a special luminaire design for a construction project in ██████, in which the client wanted to see his own ideas realized. In the end, the project was completed on schedule.

I wanted to give the Tecnolumen Art Deco lamp AD 32 with brass base to my wife for her birthday, and so I ordered the lamp in the zenolight online shop and paid with PayPal. As it often happens, the present you are glad to give is not so well received after all. My wife preferred the SF 27 with brass joints for her desk. Exchanging the lamps was quick and easy; a few days later the package arrived with the new lamp. Thanks for the good service.
