Production

Quality meeting highest standards

“Design by ORION”-Lighting series are manufactured exclusively in the ORION Lighting Factory in Vienna-Liesing. That is where Austrian artisan craftsmanship is merged in a customer-oriented way with automated serial manufacturing.

Each light runs through numerous steps in production: from developing the design, over processing the raw materials to assembling the individual components and final quality control.

“.. because Art Nouveau and Vienna Secession-style (around 1900) are a particularly fascinating period in Austria’s history. Not least from the design perspective.“

Export
Favorite series: La Bohème.
„… not only because I love opera and Puccini’s master piece is one of the most beautiful that exists. But also, because this series appeals to me with its exclusive, nonchalant and delicate design. Almost like Mimi, the female lead in the opera.”

Purchasing & Logistics
Favorite series: Maria Theresia.
“… because classical, opulent elegance is the matching opposite for puristic modern style.
