The emergence of new RIBAG luminaires in cooperation with Bartenbach

The implementation of a lighting concept that guarantees our requirements for seeing in rooms in every imaginable situation is an extremely demanding task that requires input from various specialists. The Bartenbach company has set itself the task of combining the know-how from the various fields of architecture, physics, psychology and design in an interdisciplinary team of around 80 people and thus to fully illuminate the phenomenon of light. The Austrian company has been very successful in this field since its foundation in the 1960s. Since 2017, the lighting specialists Bartenbach and RIBAG have been working together again and again on new innovative lighting solutions.
