The Zeitlos Story

Zeitlos was founded in 1999 in Berlin, Germany, with the clear goal of providing exemplary mid-century designs to the world. The name translates to “timeless” in English, and it mirrors their philosophy of bringing the archetypal modernist theory of progressive design into the 20th century and beyond.

The attitude of Zeitlos is deeply rooted in the design movements that transformed the world of style in the 20th century—such as the world-renowned Bauhaus theory, the classy and classic look of Art Deco and the space-age vibe of streamline moderne design. All their products are designed and manufactured with these aesthetics in mind, and reflect a deep and intimate understanding of the theory and philosophy of the time. Zeitlos pieces are featured in museums, art galleries and architecture all over the world.

Why We Love Zeitlos Lighting

Zeitlos is dedicated to the modernist philosophy born in the first half of the 20th century, when there was an explosion of progressive and innovative design. This movement, in the face of an emerging fully industrial world, rejected traditional design archetypes. Continuing this philosophy into the 21st century, Zeitlos’ creations carry a strong allusion to mid-century refinement, all while remaining on trend in the ever-changing contemporary world.
