light moves

Innovative from the beginning

"Semper lux" - always light. When Hermann Bansbach founded his company in Berlin after the city was devastated and deprived of electricity and light. Mr. Bansbach made the life of Berliners easier with his simple, affordable battery charger, thereby illuminating a dark period in history. He firmly believed in the social and cultural significance of light, something which went far beyond the merely commercial. It is an attitude we have retained to the present day. In this way we changed our name from Semperlux to Selux.

The advantages of a family company.
The benefits of a global group.

At home throughout the world

Think global, act local.

  • Headquarter in Berlin

Selux Individual

Customised, project-specific solutions from the concept stage to implementation

So that every vision becomes reality.

Whether in the optics, housing, mounting technology or other specific lighting needs, Selux offers design freedom. Our modular lighting systems offer unique qualities with high visual comfort.

The shape is subservient to the function - and to our quality requirements.

The superiority of Selux optics is based on complex light calculations, many years of experience and a comprehensive knowledge of materials and light sources.

Quality is the conviction that will be experienced in the product.

Quality lies in the detail. To be more specific, in our high-quality materials, in processing capability, in lean production and the application understanding. Together these aspects result in quality and turn good products into exceptional products.

We manufacture luminaires, but we provide quality of life.
