Karl Hunke and Wilhelm Jochheim founded LUCTRA in 1920. The company, originally known as ‘DURABLE’ was created to produce superior products to compliment the corporate environment of offices, as well as the more relaxed spaces of homes and travel accommodation. LUCTRA was also established to manufacture equipment for buildings.
Since inception, the brand has grown into one of the leading suppliers of office equipment. With a team of just under 700 employees, LUCTRA owns five manufacturing facilities in Germany, the Netherlands, and Poland. The collection of office equipment, made by LUCTRA, includes orientation and presentation systems, desk and computer accessories, office furniture, self-adhesive products, and storage systems.
Having expanded internationally in 1980, LUCTRA now has divisions in Austria, Benelux, France, Sweden, the UK, Poland, and the USA. This growth has mainly been due to the company’s belief in constant innovation and expansion of its product collection. This expansion has included the creation of workplace lamps as well as the introduction of an original, high-quality LED lamp structure.
This state-of-the-art LED technology aims to reproduce the same color spectrum of sunlight. From a biological standpoint, this is to provide stability within the workplace while going above and beyond to ensure the distribution of quality light. LUCTRA’s lamps also come in a variety of forms including designer floor lamps, table lamps, and mobile lamps, each built to perform a different function. Over and above the high-quality light they provide, the lamps maintain a stylish design able to compliment any office environment. They also come in a variety of colors.
LUCTRA has become known for its ability to apply logical thinking when it comes to solving problems, as well as perseverance mixed with a perfectionist view towards design. Having been around for almost 100 years, the company has been awarded with over 50 business and design awards.
