Design, innovative ability and visions
An architecture brand; trendsetting, unique products that enhance our life and work; design solutions at the highest aesthetic level; characteristic design idiom, innovation and visions – that is what Nimbus is all about.
Since February 2019, Nimbus has belonged to the Häfele Group, where it has expanded the company's portfolio in the fields of lighting and acoustics. The goal is to pool the two companies' strengths – spirit of innovation, high level of entrepreneurial dynamism, quality and service in line with German standards – and develop holistic and connected room concepts with light and acoustics.
Founded by the architect Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl in 1988, Nimbus became the LED pioneer of the lighting sector in 2006 with its radical switch to LED technology. Since that time, it has realised over 15,000 LED projects and regularly turns out trailblazing innovations. In 2016, for example, it launched its range of cableless luminaires: the first perfected, cableless luminaires with high design standards ever seen on the market. 2018 saw the introduction of the Lighting Pad, which combines light and acoustics in one unique product.
Nimbus luminaires have won major international design prizes; they are energy-efficient, durable and sustainable, and now are joined by products from Häfele's Loox5 range. Loox strip lights stand out thanks to their versatility and ease of installation: you don't have to be a qualified electrician and can simply plug them in and combine them as you wish. Other great features include lasting quality, durability and global compatibility thanks to the unique Loox power supply unit. The two product worlds are increasingly merging into one at the location in Stuttgart, where the new Centre of Competence for Light and Acoustics is being constantly expanded.
