70 years of Selux – 70 years of being connected to life

The story of our com­pany is a tale of ideas and visions. More than any­thing howe­ver, it is one of a pas­sion for light that has being going on for 70 years now. 

It all began with a bat­tery char­ger, which lit up a dark period in history, sim­pli­fy­ing the lives of Ber­li­ners during the Air­lift. The ori­gi­nal name of the com­pany back in 1948, when it was foun­ded by the elec­tri­cal engi­neer Her­mann Ban­sbach, was Sem­per­lux – mea­ning always light. Quite a few things have chan­ged since then but one thing has remai­ned – our pas­sion for inno­va­tion, for first-class design and outstan­ding lighting solu­tions, which we use for the sustai­na­ble design of living spaces. Always clo­sely con­nec­ted with human beings and their needs, our aim is to enhance qua­lity of life. Today, the Selux brand is a name with a long tra­di­tion that stands for modu­lar, intui­ti­vely under­stood pro­ducts and pro­duct fami­lies that blend per­fec­tly into smart cities.

Over the past 70 years, we have had the plea­sure of wor­king on some of the most attrac­tive lighting pro­jects in the world. Toge­ther with our part­ners, we rede­si­gned the lighting on the Kur­für­sten­damm in Berlin with the Har­den­berg can­de­la­brum, rebuilt the histo­ric Schu­p­mann can­de­la­bra that illu­mi­nate the Unter den Linden bou­le­vard and Pari­ser Platz by the Bran­den­burg Gate. Selux lumi­nai­res also adorn Oxford Street in London, the Old Port of Mar­seil­les, the former con­tai­ner har­bour Baran­ga­roo Reserve in Sydney and the 911 Memo­rial in New York. 

Since being foun­ded 70 years ago, Selux head office has been loca­ted in the metro­po­lis of Berlin, from where we still ope­rate today, as well as from many other loca­tions world­wide. We look for­ward to col­la­bo­ra­ting with you on the vision of a smart city, regard­less of whe­ther you are a plan­ner, con­trac­ting autho­rity, con­struc­tor or ope­ra­tor of exte­rior lighting.
