New to the Light Finder: Licht Im Raum

licht im raum ocular chandeliers in a church Licht Im Raum is one of the most respected companies in our industry. Founded 50 years ago in Düsseldorf as lighting designers, they have also created their own range of luminaires, which are made for them by Dinnerbier Licht in Wuppertal. They are therefore one of the very few companies that operate equally successfully in both the technical and the fine lighting arenas.

Their Ocular series is modular: it can be made up into almost any shape. The main unit is a dimmable light behind a lens which can be precisely controlled:

The result is glare-free direct/indirect light, exactly where it is wanted. There are LED versions.

The picture at the head of this post shows Ocular chandeliers lighting a large religious space, where high levels of even lighting are required by luminaires that must hang unobtrusively from a very high ceiling, whilst being sympathetic to the architecture and the function of the building.

But this is such a versatile light. Here it is being a linear pendant above a reception desk:

and as a double linear pendant over a large rectangular boardroom table:

You can put oval ones over oval tables:

and make up square ones:

Here's a round one in polished brass:

These images show some of the finishes. Here is a white one:

The same lens can be used as an elegant wall light:

The other light we'd like to feature in this post is Stelio. It is as flexible as Ocular but completely different in performance and appearance.

The module is in the form of a flattened oval with glass rods in it, which can be multiplied...

...to create very elegant, beautiful chandeliers of any size, that look clean from directly above or below, making them suitable for stairwells:

Like Ocular, they are ideally suited to large spaces, here a ballroom...

and here another religious space:

They are perfect in interiors that are elegant, contemporary, art déco or modernist:

The module has been adapted to create a lovely table light:

and here is one of the applique designs...

...which combine perfectly with chandeliers from the same collection:

Now it should be clear why Licht Im Raum is so respected. Do take any opportunity to see the lights for yourself, though, to experience how satisfyingly made and designed they are.
