Our story began in 1989 in Poland.
Our story began in 1989 in Poland. It was a year of great transformations that unleashed the dreams of freedom and created a space for people with passion.
Can you imagine producing luminaires in your garage when nothing was available or a shop full of luminaires right after the times when all shop shelves had been empty? Thatâ€™s what LUG was like. The concept of our lighting brand was inspired by passion, ambition and the entrepreneurial spirit. A father and son's dream of light captured in a beautiful form, created out of love for design and an obsession with the latest technologies. A brand that has undergone a revolutionary transformation from a small family business into a global brand.
It is not just about the changes that have taken place over the past 30 years, but also about a long-term perspective in which we will fundamentally change our company.
THE ART OF
DESIG The art of design is finding points of coexistence
and maintaining coherence with the surroundings
An original solution A luminaire that was born out of the passion to create and the courage to overcome our own limitations. It has broken the mould and freed our love for design. We have never looked back. ROBIN is a symbol in the history of our design.
Curious about the world and hungry for new ideas, we are inspired by life because we believe that technological innovations deserve beautiful luminaires. Therefore, when we design our products, we try to combine beautiful form with utility, which is reflected in the prizes we win.

OF LI LUG Light Factory is an advocate of well-thought-out lighting, designed optimally for every architectural
project. Light not only makes it easier for us to use buildings, but also exposes their architectural beauty and
often becomes an integral part of architecture. Adjusting lighting to a specific building is a complex task that
requires rethinking many aspects, from its function, through the architectural vision, to energy efficiency and budget plans. It is very important for us to provide optimised solutions. That is why our lighting is tailored tto every project. It applies to both an individual product and the overall lighting concept.
We have been architects of light for over thirty years now.
IGHT Our many years of experience in the field of architecture and design allow us to create solutions consistent with the nature and purpose of a given facility. Our cooperation with architects and interior designers has
resulted in the creation of an internal competence centre which provides support at every stage, from the concept through the executive design and implementation to acceptance and as-built measurements.
Thanks to our creativity, design instinct and advanced knowledge in creating lighting projects, we translate design visions into specific solutions. LUG wants to act as a â€œtranslatorâ€? between technology and the world of architecture, so close cooperation with architects running a given project is crucial to us.
CREATE YOUR OWN VISION AND WE WILL PROVIDE SOLUTIONS Many creators. One vision. You can count on the support of our 14 design and architectural teams. We are ready to work with you at every stage of every architectural project.
Our design support includes: 3D modelling, photorealistic visualisations, documentation with light intensity simulation, optimisation to ensure ergonomics, a layer with import-ready lighting, technical reports, BREEM and LEED analyses, the ability to create personalised solutions, Virtual Reality presentations and collision reports.
Customise the product to your own needs. We give you the opportunity to modify LUG luminaires for the needs of your project. The customisation of LUG luminaires includes changes in optical parts, photometry, colour, dimensions and the installation method. We have set up a customisation department in order to best preserve the vision and architectural integrity of the designed structures.
Custom We modify our products
Bespoke The product is created for you
Letâ€™s be inspired together. Our inspiration and the driving force for action is every customerâ€™s need and vision. What we create and how we work is related to meeting these needs. We have an innovative approach towards problem solving. We refuse to meet expectations in an unoriginal way. Instead, we create added value for you and your project.

THE IDEA COMES
Forum Gliwice, explore the steps leading to implementation. Architectural Vision. After getting to know the requirements of the facility and the investor, we came up with the first design ideas using a recurring elliptical shape, present in many parts of the building. One of the ideas was the shape of a butterfly. However, due to the lack of ready-made solutions in the market, the implementation of this idea seemed a long way off.
Design challenges. The most difficult challenge was to reconcile many different guidelines, adapt new technologies to an existing facility and come up with several custom solutions that were made specifically for this project. This applies, for example, to street furniture and furnishings of the building, which refer to the oval shape of the atrium and the skylight. This motif is repeated in various elements of the project as a distinguishing feature, for example in the geometry of the stage, benches, elements of visual identification and lighting in the food court that was placed on pillars. The coordination of a project in which we do not use ready-made solutions from a catalogue, but instead implement new and individual ideas, is an additional challenge for the architect.

TURN YOUR VISION INTO A DESIGN A tailored solution â€“ BESPOKE â€“ is about designing a luminaire for a specific project, which enables an architect to realise their individual visions while maintaining the highest quality of the offered luminaires. This was also the case with the creation of dedicated luminaires for the Forum Gliwice project. Starting from the concept, through technical design, visual design, visualisation in the facility, lighting intensity design and documentation, ending with a layer ready for import to the architectural design. This is how the Butterfly luminaire was created. It not only meets all design requirements, but is also characterised by appropriately selected parameters and guarantees the highest quality, cost optimisation and energy optimisation.

Light intensity distribution When preparing lighting projects, we make a simulation of the levels of light intensity, which illustrates the distribution of light in different parts of the project that is being carried out together. The correct distribution of light intensity is an important factor in choosing the best lighting solution, creating the desired atmosphere in an interior and highlighting elements that are important to us. The balance between these parameters is a key factor in the well-being of users.
Butterfly Customised luminaire â€“ Butterfly. Two sets of triple ellipses in different sizes (up to 3m) mounted on a pole. The shape of the luminaire brings to mind butterfly wings, which inspired the Chief Architect of Forum Gliwice.
SOLUTIO We deliver light created for you “We chose the shape of the lamp that we liked, but it turned out that the original manufacturer of this luminaire did not want to cooperate with us and did not want to modify the product. You won this competition because you are a company that adjusts its products to the needs of a given project and is eager to cooperate with architects and investors. Which is definitely commendable. As architects, we have undertaken to create new LUG luminaires and design this family of products. 16 luminaires – the TOWER family – 3 types of luminaires: one suspended luminaire and two wall lamps. This was a product dedicated to the design of the hotel, including etched glass with the symbol of the hotel on the underside of the lamp. Everything was designed, from the inside to the source.”

“A BIM model of the hotel was created for the purpose of internal coordination. The geometry of the building was recreated from 2D underlays and supplemented by a rich photographic inventory of details and significant elements on the façade of the building. During the development of the digital model, we used a gradation scale of detail, which helped us reconcile a large number of imported mesh objects with the smoothness of work. The BIM technology allowed us to keep abreast of the situation and prepare a full analytical and visualisation package, providing both photo-realistic renderings, intensity simulations of the illuminated façade, and quantitative summaries to analyse the optimisation of the proposed lighting solution.” arch.

CUSTOM Lighting customisation is a complex process of examining the architect’s needs, the user’s expectations and the installer’s technical requirements. An experienced team of professionals guarantees high-quality solutions. The customisation of LUG luminaires includes changes in optical parts, photometry, colour, dimensions and the mounting method of the designed objects.
Bałtyk Tower. Successful cooperation.
Bałtyk Tower is a unique building, which stands out from other office buildings in Poznań not only because of its shape that changes depending on the observer’s perspective, but also due to its glass façade, which is illuminated from the inside. In order to achieve this illumination effect, architects came up with the idea to unify the lines of luminaires in the building. LUG Light Factory managed to work out a solution to fully implement this concept, maintain similar interior design and meet varying requirements of individual tenants. A dozen or so companies competed to provide lighting for Bałtyk. LUG Light Factory won thanks to the experience, ingenuity and creativity of our team, which comprehensively handled this project. This effect was achieved due to a unified lighting system, colour temperature and light intensity, as well as the individually designed arrangement of luminaires. In this project also involved using an original assembly solution developed by the Customisation Department of LUG Light Factory in cooperation with the ROCKFON company. This joint project involved ducts for installing luminaires. They are an integral part of the ceiling and are at the same time easy to install, which facilitated the contractor’s work. The challenge in this project was the shape of the walls in the building and the multitude of different angles. The lighting has been technologically adapted to each room. The lighting lines on each floor had to run similarly in order to overlap at each level.
