From draft to finished product

As a design light manufacturer, our job is to guarantee that our manufacturing process yields products of the highest quality for our customers. There is a lengthy product development process that takes place long before any of our luminaires go into production. But what exactly happens between the idea and a sales-ready product?

The idea

Add value

Every product needs a solid foundation, a foundation that promises the user a decisive advantage or indispensable value. After all, what is the point of a product that doesn’t do the customer any good? With that in mind, the starting point for a new light is often a simple idea with the potential to permanently change the existing market. In order to realise an idea like this, a concept is required, so that a rough design of the product can be sketched out. Clear lines, unusual shapes, functional principles, new technologies and metaphors form the basis of HOLY TRINITY’s design lights.

The inspiration

View light from every angle

We often draw inspiration for new design elements from the many facets of architecture, art and history. In doing so, there are no limits on our imagination, and we open our minds to new impressions and interpretations. We want to look at light from all angles, even if it means breaking with existing standards and views and reinventing the rules. We want to step out of our comfort zone and be fascinated and inspired by the places, people and objects in our environment. Our luminaires tell the story of the user drawing back a curtain. The user can determine how much light to let into the room with a gentle hand motion. This playful interface allows users to individually design their lighting spaces and define the ratio of light to shadow themselves.

The draft

Down to the last detail

Our thorough research allows us to create the first sketches and preliminary designs, which is then in turn used to create a prototype. The subsequent rendering (a graphic representation of the design) allows us to test out different variants and possibilities. Our final goal for the prototype is to present a model that leaves no room for doubt. To ensure that we have accurate estimates and an opportunity to adapt the proportions, dimensions and feasibility of the idea before it goes into production, we have a three-dimensional model made via 3D printing. If the model meets our expectations, a production-ready design is sent to be manufactured. But that doesn’t mean it’s on the market yet. We test this first series yet again for functionality, quality and durability, and, if everything is in order, use this final design as the basis for mass production.


Leave nothing to chance

Our products are crafted in high-quality manufacturing facilities. We place immense value on the close coordination of design and development through every phase of production, which is vital to the excellent quality of our products. The main profile of our RIMA, for example, is pressed through a fine extrusion process and then reworked by milling. The stainless-steel legs are also brushed by hand. We ensure a smooth and thoroughly detailed production process and through this process, transform a simple idea into a design luminaire that meets the highest standards of functionality and design. The end result is a product that guarantees users added value and a truly unique lighting experience.
