The brand ﬁlumen was founded in 1999 by Christian Finke in a Berlin studio house. The focus was on the production of personal designs. Today, larger projects are also being realized in Potsdam in collaboration with light planners and interior designers with several suppliers. New designs by other designers are also added. At the core, filumen remains a manufactory with a team of craftsmen and designers, which allows for the brand’s persistent advancements.
ﬁlumen combines minimalism of form with a special emphasis on material and colour. The cubic gates series marked the beginning of this with consistently cubic lights that have, due to their intensely coloured silks, a signalling effect. From the outset, high-quality processing was paramount and formed the basis of our position in the upper market segment.
