- BRAND STORY -
Robert Sonneman, also known as "Lighting's Modern Master," is considered a pioneer of contemporary lighting. With a goal to make lighting an art form, Sonneman's award-winning designs have been at the forefront of the design world for nearly five decades. Since its conception in the 1960s and '70s, many of Sonneman's designs have become classics in their own right.
Sonneman Lighting was born in 2003. World-renowned and acclaimed for its clean lines and close attention to form, function, and detail, Sonneman's award-winning fixtures are well-made and driven by design. In a note on the Sonneman website, Robert Sonneman explains, "I am driven by what's next. I am curious and challenged and excited to discover the odyssey that is design."
Sonneman's sleek, innovative lighting projects have become a staple in a time where innovation is key. Every Sonneman piece merges the modern architectural genres of the 20th century with the contemporary diversity of the 21st, creating classics with a right-now twist.
While Sonneman pieces are internationally influenced, Sonneman aims to develop a unique style from an American point of view. According to Robert Sonneman, "I continue to investigate the evolutionary and the revolutionary as the basis for developing a cosmopolitan American style." Whether it's the modern Urban Edge Collection or the innovative Art of Technology Collection, Sonneman delivers products that work wonderfully in any décor style.
Ever-evolving and extraordinarily innovative, Sonneman is devoted to creating unexpected products that exemplify the quality for which the brand is known. The people at Sonneman are strong believers that their innovative spirit, creative persona and expertise in the field lives in every aspect of what they do.
With four decades of experience under its belt, the Robert Sonneman team is eager to learn and continues to push the boundaries of design and innovation. Their love of the craft creates a limitless future with endless possibilities.
