Marset is a Spanish lighting company which was established in 1942 as a metal foundry, before concentrating on illumination in 1965. A long experience with molding metal gave the company a strong base for experimenting with different lamp designs, and over the years, Marset has become famous for its interesting and unique lighting effects.
Today, Marset aims to discover new nuances of light and create atmospheric and timeless designs with modern techniques. One of the best known designs of the brand is the FollowMe lamp, which won the Red Dot Award in 2016.

Design studio kaschkasch was founded in 2011 by Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider. The duo works in furniture, lighting design and art direction for several national and international clients.
Being a duo, collaboration is a crucial aspect of kaschkasch’s work. Discussion is key. kaschkasch approaches design as a helpful and practical component of life that conveys character and attitudes through the expressiveness of restraint. Basing themselves on this approach to design, kaschkasch’s formal language is a symbiosis of straightforwardness and beauty that toes the line between function and formal severity. The results question prevailing norms and offer new answers to existing everyday demands.
Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider share a background that combines hands-on and academic education: both are trained as cabinet makers followed by studies in product design. This versatility informs everything kaschkasch does, through traditional craftsmanship techniques and a mindset geared towards innovation, disruption and new technological solutions.
