Innovative from the beginning

"Semper lux" - always light. When Hermann Bansbach founded his Company in Berlin after the war, the City was devastated and deprived of electricity and light. Mr. Bansbach made the life of Berliners easier with his simple, affordable battery charger, thereby illuminating a dark period in history. He firmly believed in the social and cultural significance of light, something which went far beyond the merely commercial. It is an attitude we have retained to the present day. In this way we changed our name from Semperlux to Selux.

Project-specific solutions from concept stage to implementation

The shape is subservient to the function - and to our quality requirements.

 The superiority of Selux optics is based on complex light calculations, many years of experience and a comprehensive knowledge of materials and light sources.

Quality is conviction that will be experienced in the product.

Quality lies in the detail, to be more specific, in our high-quality materials, in processing capability, in or low-resource production and the application understanding. Together these aspects result in quality and turn good products into exceptional products.

Ahead with extraordinary ideas.

Our goal is to develop products that are extraordinary. Products that originate in practice but have a different approach and are credible and convincing. With digitally controlled light systems for efficient light management, daylight sensors, multimedia playback walls or colored lighting concepts designed to create a unique lighting ambience.   

We manufacture luminaires. But we provide quality of life. 

A combination of grounded knowledge, proven ability and first-class light tools enable us to achieve the extraordinary. This is the end to which we pool our knowledge, adding enjoyment, ambition and a desire to be groundbreaking.
