Some of the most innovative and technological lighting of its time, Fredrick Ramond is known for designs that are light years ahead of the industry and push the envelope of creativity ins style and construction. While Hinkley epitomizes ‘American Chic’ lighting, its Fredrick Ramond brand captures ‘European Elegance’ as Hinkley Lighting’s luxury line.
A favorite of the design community, Fredrick Ramond developed a loyal following among creative and design savvy homeowners and interior designers. Hinkley is committed to carrying that legacy forward.
“A fourth generation company, we love to create lighting that is a vital part of how customers live in and enjoy every aspect of their homes” says Rick Wiedemer, CEO of Hinkley Lighting. "For the modern homeowner who is looking for something unique, Fredrick Ramond strives to redefine livable luxury lighting designed with an open-minded sense of modernity and artisan craftsmanship."
Luxury and efficiency is the ultimate in lighting design. The brand constantly researches, develops and patents new technologies that no one else offers to make its fixtures more energy efficient. As a global leader in style and innovative technology, Fredrick Ramond has received several “Lighting for Tomorrow” awards, a prestigious honor that recognized LED products with technical innovation without sacrificing style.
Carrying on the Fredrick Ramond tradition of cutting-edge design and engineering is paramount for Hinkley’s entire product development team. Taking inspiration from LED’s modern pedigree, durability, long-lasting and environmentally-conscious technology, Hinkley designer Joel Tomlinson combined all of these elements into the design of the ZEN collection.
“I wanted to create a design that was the physical translation of the many benefits of LED technology,” Tomlinson said. "A linear chandelier, pendant and sconce simultaneously highlight the minimalist design and beautiful bamboo grain, giving the design a modern yet warm, natural feel."
Fredrick Ramond continues to push the envelope by creating lighting that brings fashion and design together and responding to the most chic trends and styles that crossover both of these stylish-conscious domains. Collections such as Middlefield, Gemma and Caspia have been featured in acclaimed publications such as Elle Décor, Veranda and Traditional Home. Most recently, Middlefield was featured in a curated collection of items for the home along with legacy brands like Hermes, Gucci and Herend, which have produced dinnerware for Europe’s royal families since 1839.
The right finish can take lighting to the next level. This critical design element can take a fixture from fine to absolutely fabulous with jewelry-like luminescence that convey everything from crisp and clean, to warm and cozy, to bold and rich. Fredrick Ramond pays close attention to what is happening in the world of furniture, appliances and plumbing to make sure its lighting can complement every area of your home.
