“I do not seek. I find.” This saying adorns the canteen wall at Nimbus and is a perfect description of the company spirit. “Searching means wanting to find something that’s already known in something new. Whereas finding – that’s something totally new,” says Dietrich Brennenstuhl in explanation of his corporate philosophy. The firm’s founder and managing director is no fan of going with the flow. Instead, for the last 25 years, he has been practising the strategy of “doing things differently” – with great success. A perfect example: ten years ago, Nimbus was the first firm in the lighting sector to commit to LED. In the meantime, LED technology plays a crucial role – and the wealth of experience the small lighting manufacturer has been able to acquire puts it at an advantage – even as compared to major corporations. When it comes to LED-based interior lighting, Nimbus continues to be regarded as an innovation leader even today. (by Atrium)

Lighting and acoustics are without doubt two of the essential factors in determining the comfort of an office as a workspace. In a career spanning more than 25 years so far, Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl has acquired great expertise in both of these fields. With his Nimbus brand, the Stuttgart architect and entrepreneur pioneered LED lighting solutions well before technological developments had fully opened up this area, when there was still a lot of basic work to be done.
