Tobias Grau

premium luminaires for the home and office

Designing and building premium bespoke lighting that produces top-quality light is not only Tobias Grau’s aim; it’s their passion. Today that means intense involvement with new technologies whilst paying equal attention to ecological aspects. This results in totally new possibilities and necessities for lighting design.

The introduction of LEDs has enabled Tobias Grau to create a totally new kind of design for bespoke home lighting – with shapes, materials and sizes that wouldn’t be possible with previously conventional light sources. By redesigning the technology of their existing lamps to incorporate LEDs Tobias Grau not only lowered power consumption but also improved the light quality.

Tobias Grau bespoke lighting design

In 1984 Tobias Grau started out as Freelance Designer working from a loft in Hamburg focusing on interior design projects for advertising agencies and fashion stores. The interior design projects led to his first collection of luminaires which; he launched under his own name. Working with his wife, Franziska Grau, Tobias has built a company that is world renown for quality and a brand that represents ‘premium’.

Through the late 80s and early 90s Tobias gradually grew his product range until 1992 when he displayed his work at a number of trade fairs including Milan. It was now that Tobias Grau, the brand, became internationally recognised.

In 1999 the first Tobias Grau stores opened in Hamburg, Berlin and Dusseldorf  closely followed by an online retail presence in 2000. The new millenium sees Tobias Grau continue to develop new exciting lighting technology including the release of the first LED luminaire named LEED.

The focus on LED technology drives innovation in dimming controls and leads to new a product range.
