Metamorphosis of a Light Company
1845 – It all began with a young plumber in Cologne. Gottfried Remagen started installing gas pipes for public street lighting in 1842. Shortly later he founded his own business and began to supply gas pressure vessels in the cellars of private houses with gas light. His son expanded the small company to include a lighting shop. – Today, Lichthaus REMAGEN is not only a specialist shop, but also a consultancy in the 6th generation of the family. REMAGEN stands for the emotional use of light. Because light is life. Good light sources provide security and functionality, representativeness and individuality. Spotlight creates dramatic settings and indirect lighting systems create subtle lighting scenes. Unique lighting design that is coordinated with the architecture and living spaces is the crowning touch of every building and its workplaces and living spaces. REMAGEN combines lighting design with energy efficiency, lighting control, façade illumination and installation, but also with room acoustics and health. –
