Mawa – innovative lighting concepts with a timeless look
The traditional German company Mawa creates and manufactures functional lights with a consciously reduced design using high-quality materials such as metal, glass and synthetic materials.At Mawa, the product development and manufacture come from a single source
The German light manufacturer Mawa was founded in Berlin-Kreuzberg in1978. Its founder Martin Wallroth initially focused on the design and manufacture of home furnishings. Later, he expanded the product range by designer lights and then made it a separate category. Mawa consists of the successful areas Mawa lights and Mawa accessories. The products by Mawa are primarily available in specialist shops.
The combination of a creative workshop and its own production facilities significantly contributes to Mawa’s success. Here, both areas are working hand in hand. Thus, new ideas can be quickly realised, further developed and improved. Thanks to this flexible company structure, Mawa is able to manufacture such unique and high-quality light fittings for the home.
The focus of the designs by Mawa is placed on functionality combined with cutting-edge technology. The products are characterised by an extremely minimalist form and are specifically designed to comply with the perfect lighting effect and practical benefits.
A good example for the practice oriented design direction is the Mawa Wittenberg spotlight series. The recessed and surface-mounted spotlights easily blend into the living ambience due to their plain design. Furthermore, they serve as a decorative eye-catcher, thanks to their high-quality materials and the careful workmanship. The Mawa One floor lamps are also manufactured according to this principle. They offer the customers the finest technology. Numerous practical details optimally highlight this trouble-free reading and working light. By means of the Mawa Fridtjof, it can be clearly seen how Mawa combines a high luminous efficacy with timeless design in its models. In this respect, the selection and quality of the materials used plays a big role. Mawa leaves nothing to chance so that beautifully shaped designer lights for private homes and commercial premises are created. Particularly culinary establishments, sales counters and reception areas benefit from the unobtrusive lamps with a high luminous efficacy.
However, the aesthetic side also does not come up short in the creations by Mawa. The Etna ceiling light shaped like a volcano impressively demonstrates the company’s talent to combine harmonious forms with lighting accents.
Many well-known designers such as Fridtjof Schliephacke and Jan Dinnebier cooperate with Martin Wallroth and Mawa. Their innovative ideas fascinate the international audience all over the world and allow the company to implement numerous special projects. For instance, Mawaed a light series for the German Federal Chancellery, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and many more public buildings. Renowned companies such as BMW, Daimler or Sony also commission Mawa to develop and manufacture lighting concepts. Many designs are today included in the permanent exhibitions of well-known museums all over the world.
Mawaer lights represent a successful combination of practical benefits and purist beauty. Refined details and attractive forms make every light fixture a particular lighting experience.
