Lamps for orientation

The designation 'lamps for orientation' is used for those lamps that do not serve a direct lighting but facilitate an orientation through their relatively sparse light.
Inside the house they are used for example in corridors or for stairs, outside for driveways or stairs. In most cases these lamps are wall lamps or buried lamps. As exterior lamps also lamps for pillars or bollards are used.

Lamps for bollards

A bollard lamp is an exterior lamp that is installed on top of a pole or a pillar. They are often used in garden lighting and today they mostly have built-in LEDs. Often people make use of more garden accessories.


solar clock

A solar clock is an astrological device which uses the position of the sun in the sky to show the time. In most cases the shadow cast by a bar on the clock face is used for this to tell the time. The solar clock shows the sun's course from sunrise to sunset. In the middle of the day the solar clock shows 12 o'clock solar time.


A solar clock is a beautiful object  which enables you to vividly pursue how our measuring of time began and the seasons came into being.


Nowadays solar clocks are above all used as a tasteful garden accessory.

Visual convenience

Whereas the artificial lighting should only provide sufficient light, the aspect of what is visually convenient has become more important in the meantime. Visual convenience is a sense of well-being created by a high quality of lighting. Such a high quality can be achieved for example through  a combination of different lamps. Wall lamps and designer lamps can complement here adequately.

Biological clock

The clock ticking inside your body is also called biological clock. According to recent findings it is the suprachiasmatic nucleus (a central area in the human brain) that controls the biological clock. This area is decisively influenced by light, which makes light an important timer for the biological clock. The intervals of waking and sleeping are in a way depending on light. This again makes artificial light and thus lamps and lights an important factor in the human rhythm of being awake and falling asleep.
