SONNEMAN – A Way of Light is closely connected to Robert Sonneman, the designer, and his commitment to modernist ideals, innovation, and the extraordinary quality that is the promise of the brand. Robert Sonneman, “Lighting’s Modern Master,” pioneered modern lighting in the 1960s and ‘70s, making it an art form. Many of his award-winning designs have become classics of the modern era. Acclaimed for clean lines and alliance to form from function, he has been at the forefront of modern design for five decades. His prolific design vocabulary extends through the modern architectural and decorative genres of the 20th century and forwards to the contemporary diversity of today.
“We are devoted to creating the extraordinary, free from contrivance, with quality and refinement. We believe that creativity, innovation, and commitment to excellence begins with design and lives in every aspect of everything that we do.” - Robert Sonneman
