History of Lightyears
Lightyears A/S was established in May 2005 and is based on the former lighting company Horn Belysning A/S. The first collection was launched at Copenhagen Furniture Fair in May 2005. Lightyears A/S resides in a dynamic business area at Aarhus Harbour, where marketing and product development are handled by 11 dedicated employees.
Lightyears A/S develops and markets design lamps for the design- and quality conscious consumer as well as for the contract market. The collection is both functional, progressive and timeless and gives a high value for money. Lightyears cooperate with several of Danish design's most innovative and recognized designers like Knud Holscher, Jørn Utzon, Kasper Salto og Thomas Sigsgaard, Hans Sandgren Jakobsen, Strand & Hvass, Cecilie Manz, Halsskov and Dalsgaard, Morten Voss, Mads Odgaard and the Japanese designer Hidenori Kuge.
It is our vision to become Scandinavia's preferred supplier of contemporary designed quality lighting.

Philosophy of Lightyears
Lightyears does not put just any lamp into production. The most important requirement is a fusion of form and function, and that the lamp provides optimum illumination. Every single detail must have its own purpose, and not exist purely for the sake of design.
The combination of progressive and timeless aesthetics is the golden thread that runs through all of our product series, tangibly expressed through functional design and refined lighting technology.
Thus, our product assortment presents a new and pioneering order of modern design and quality illumination. In this sense, we know that our name brings obligation. But it also proves our commitment to being light years ahead!
