Originally founded as Nimbus Design GmbH in Stuttgart in 1988, the Nimbus Group – a manufacturer of LED luminaires (Nimbus brand) and technology-driven acoustically effective room partitioning systems (Marke Rossoacoustic brand) – has explored new avenues. They have done so by doing things differently – and a lot of the time they were right. The enterprise was the first to place its faith in LED technology for innovative lighting solutions, giving itself a global lead even ahead of the large corporations. Since 2006 Nimbus has realised around 8,000 LED projects and can now call upon a wealth of experience unique among its competitors: the spectrum ranges from fitting out houses, doctors' practices, galleries, schools, town hall foyers, boardrooms and lounges through to complete office buildings and large company headquarters like the Unilever head quarter and the Chamber of Commerce in Hamburg, the ADAC headquarters in Munich and the recently completed head office of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva.
As the leading innovator in the field, Nimbus is currently the only manufacturer to offer LED luminaires for virtually all lighting tasks in the home, at the workplace, for wide-area general lighting and for outdoors, e.g. for gardens, parks and terraces.
