Anything goes

Like any other language, the language of form is constantly in flux, "form follows function" replaces kitsch and ornamentation with purism.

Paul Feyerabend's philosophy of "anything goes" has long since found its way into design and architecture, leading to new design products. From the alternative "form follows nature" - to the hedonistic "form follows fun".

SCHMITZ | WILA is a fervent advocate of the "anything goes" approach and wholly committed the removing all barriers to freedom of design in architectural lighting.

The point of reference for interior lighting design is the character of the room that is to be illuminated. Designers with more elevated aspirations, however, give consideration not only to the purely technical and economic requirements, but also to aesthetic aspects.

In such cases, the ambient architecture is a determining factor in the choice of components for the desired lighting solution.

First impressions are crucial

designers are delighted, therefore, that SCHMITZ | WILA luminaires can accommodate every kind of character and reputation.

Some like it utilitarian and dispassionate, while others prefer emotion and melodrama. With SCHMITZ | WILA luminaires you can put on just about any kind of stage show. From subtle highlights in small, elegant designer stores to brilliant light shows in shopping malls. From cool understatement to prestigious lighting schemes.

Good lighting is good for the soul

Creating a sociable or intimate atmosphere is one of the things that lighting does best. The SCHMITZ | WILA luminaires anables you to create your own oasis of calm with a personalised combination of background and accentuating lighting in both private and commercial properties.

Lightening the mood in the office

In the workplace, ergonomics and the increasingly important sense of well-being are sometimes uneasy companions. For successful companies that combine function with inspiration in their offices, it stands to reason, therefore, that creative architectural lighting plays a key role.

The SCHMITZ | WILA luminaires enables you to produce a pleasant and motivating working atmosphere, from the foyer and the conference suite to informal meeting rooms. At the same time, it gives you an opportunity to present the corporate culture and image in the right light.


Experience light in action on almost 200 m²

Even if communication is becoming increasingly digital, the "physical" encounter with a company and its products remains immensely important. The need to hold the products in one's hands, to look at them and try them out, to create encounters. Our showroom concept combines lighting experience with exciting insider knowledge and know-how on the topics of lighting quality, lighting planning and design.
