Sophisticated but not elitist...

...this is how Thomas Schulte, the owner and managing director of NEXT, sees their collection of products. Light Culture is delighted to introduce its new exclusive partnership with NEXT from Germany.

Already at NEXT's first Light+Building in 2000 three of their products won the “Form 2000-award” of the German Crafts Association. Soon after, the ‘Liquid Light’ luminaire received the award “Design for Europe 2000″ at the Interieur trade fair in Belgium.

In the following years he expanded the collection in an increasingly close cooperation with the design studio Büro für Form. Thus he managed to draw a connection from products that work with a tongue in cheek (like FlipFlap, for example) to luminaires that convince with their functionality.

"Our collection is directed by the idea of people feeling comfortable with our lighting. I want NEXT to offer contemporary design and to create a suitable atmosphere whether in private homes or in architectural projects", Thomas Schulte explains.

The manifold applications of NEXT luminaries prove him right. Whether it’s the opera "Faust" at Staatstheater Wiesbaden or Jamie Oliver’s restaurant in Cornwall – the NEXT brand just shines.
