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.

Thus, their product assortment presents a new and pioneering order of modern design and quality illumination. In this sense, they know that their name brings obligation. But it also proves their commitment to being light years ahead!
All the production is handmade by experienced craftsman.
A liberated and experimental approach to the design process combined with a sharp eye for the latest production techniques are the key words for Komplot Design. The design duo is among the most innovative Danish design companies who has managed to both continue and renew the Danish design traditions and at the same time stay abreast of the latest international development. Komplot Design was created by the designers/architects Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen in 1987.
According to Boris Berlin and Poul Christiansen, good design is more than just a solution to the primary functional problem. Good design also features cultural, philosophical and aesthetic elements. For that very reason, the final result is always extremely personal and greatly influenced by the cultural backgrounds and experiences of the designers.
In their work to create the first series of lights for Lightyears, the Komplot designers were inspired by the greatest creator and source of inspiration in the World: Mother Nature. The design universe is called ‘Shapes of Nature’ and it underpins this fascination and inspiration.
