Founded in 1990 by Helmut Angerer, Conceptlicht is an independent lighting design office that plans and realizes lighting design projects all over the world. Our approach is the connection of visual perception and the impact of light on humans with architectural and aesthetical aspects in respect of technical regulations. Our goal is to create the basis for human wellbeing. Though meeting standardized criteria, the aim is not to reach a certain amount of light, but rather to translate the desired perception of space into lighting design. Light is invisible, what we see are reflections on surfaces. Thus, it is essential that the hierarchy of spatial elements is supported by light, creating a corresponding hierarchy of luminance dependent on functional and esthetical aspects. Conceptlicht consists of seven lighting designers with different backgrounds: architecture, interior design, electrical engineering and scenography.
