A total of 15 luminaire families are available for buildings and adjacent areas. Each luminaire family is comprised of several product groups – ranging from in-ground and wall luminaires to illuminating bollards – in an integrated and holistic design. 

Furthermore, numerous technical innovations for a diverse range of luminaire models shall be showcased.

Pierre van Lamsweerde, Managing Director of Hess and CEO of the Nordeon Group, is delighted with the development of the company. „The LIGHTFAIR is our second largest showcase this year.
