It is not just a gadget anymore.In KlusDesign we have been designing and manufacturing for over 30 years. A few years ago my field of interests changed to lighting industry. The reason was emerging of the LED technology. It is extremely fascinating especially for the designer. That could be compared to a painter who was given new means of expression, sculptor who was introduced to a new material, or a musician who was offered a unique, unknown instrument - says Sylwester Klus.In our opinion LEDs are one of these technologies that introduce new quality into design. Their lighting capabilities and compact size give number of new architectural and design solutions. LEDs can be used to create interior and outdoor lamps, furniture with integrated lighting, stair illumination etc. LEDs can be applied everywhere where the light is needed – says Sylwester Klus.
