Christoph Matthias It all started in a garage which was the studio of the designer Günter Rochelt. Here, I learnt to leave out all heavy and unnecessary material while constructing human powered aircrafts. This has remained to be my subject to this day. I was lucky to learn from a lot of competent people. That's how I got to Ingo Maurer. Before I met Ingo, I dealt only with three dimensions as a designer. Now I descovered something completely new. There was a fourth dimension as soon as a space is illuminated. Once you figure this out, it will stick with you. My vision of space is determined by light. Light... Light is very simple, straight, it never goes around corners. Only when striking surface, quality is created. Light and shadows vary - we need both to sense a space and to feel comfortable. Like under water when the sun is shining trough the surface. Like as a child with a torch under the blanket. Like the vision of colour when you close your eyes. Light is a universial language. Our world is composed of light. Lighting Design As professional lighting designers, we are involved in the process of planning and construction, from blueprint to completion. We work in steady exchange with the architects. With doing so, we are able to influence the creative process throughout the construction phase. We create the nighttime illumination of buildings. Product Line Lichtlauf offers its own product line. Our products are available in specialised stores or directly at Lichtlauf. Our specific style - playing with unconventional material, colour and methods - is reflected in each item. The planning at Lichtlauf is done upstairs in our offices - downstaires, in our workshop, we experiment, test and realise our creations.
