As an LED specialist we combine the technical generation and control of light with its emotional effect: before light and beyond, on a globally unique innovative, high-quality and creative level.

At our site in Oberhaching we develop and produce lighting control systems, LED solutions and supporting software products for almost any industry, including automotive, shipbuilding and medical, as well as complete solutions for hotels, museums, trade fairs and high-end private households.

Founded in Munich in 1998, we have always carried out all research and production activities in Germany. Each year, more and more customers across the world benefit from this extensive experience, our in-depth know-how and the award-winning products.

Values

We live our values – to your advantage

High quality, dynamic and uncomplicated – these are our values. They describe our attitude and commitment to create impressive lighting experiences, each of which is unique in its own way.
We have the ability to meet unusual customer requirements and to provide customized products. We have an in-depth understanding of each lighting application and good artistic awareness. Our services reflect our high standard. We are dynamic and uncomplicated. We translate our own visions into lighting applications using market relevant foresight.

Brand promise

We think and act in two dimensions

Our promise to all customers and partners is “before light and beyond”. This means that not only are we an one-stop shop for planning, consultation, development and production, we also have an in-depth understanding of the aesthetic dimension of light. We are therefore a creative partner for light artists, architects and industrial designers and also an innovative partner for industrial customers of all sizes from all industries.

Strong partners

The feno network

As a pioneer in the lighting industry we consider it our responsibility to constantly break new ground. We take responsibility for the next generation and play an active role in shaping the future of the industry. We can succeed in this only together with strong partners with whom we have been maintaining an open dialog and rewarding cooperative relationship for many years.

Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences - Promoting creativity

Students research “light as a raw material” together with feno. An “experimentation room” fitted with freely programmable illuminated panels forms the central element of the “Light Workshop” at Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences. Colored fluorescent lamps produce an extremely broad spectrum of light and provide the basis for a large number of applications. Students can test their ideas here in a range of experiments including simulating an overcast sky, reproducing the effects of light and creating concepts for interactive media surfaces and facades. An ideal career entry point for budding creative designers.
