When Licht im Raum was founded by Johannes and Lisa Dinnebier in 1956, the lighting planner's job outline was almost unknown. First and foremost, light had to be bright and secondarily it had to represent status. What people thought of as good light in the mid 50s, were chandeliers for the most part. The new company had completely different ideas, though. For them, light was a means of design in archi-tecture in the first place. And only then a question of watt and volt. With Licht im Raum, young avantgarde architects like Egon Eiermann found kindred spirits with whom they could realize their ideas of lighting planning in its entirety. " We still feel obliged to the tradition to use light as a means of architectural design ", says Daniel Klages, Licht im Raum's present manager. "It is basically a side effect that the rooms get light afterwards."
