Hollands Licht – Benno Premsela – Lotek XL
“Hollands Licht presents the design talent of which the Netherlands is rich. The collection consists not only of classics from well-known designers, whose names have been familiar to the public for some time. We also allow ourselves to be inspired by upcoming talent who have their own view on lighting, material and utility. Not only is the lamp as an object key, but also the functionality of the lamp in a space or interior. The development process involves a search for the right coherence between light effect and functional use. Together with the designers, we strive to develop timeless and user-friendly products which subtly grasp the attention. We do this by combining creativity, craftsmanship and the latest expertise in the field of lighting, but also by staying open to new ideas.”
Hollands Licht is an initiative of Eikelenboom, an international designer lighting importer and agent. Since 1968, the company has offered lighting solutions for both private and project-based interiors. In 1982, Eikelenboom began producing the Lotek, an iconic floor lamp which today is one of the most famous design classics in Dutch lighting. The Lotek was designed by the versatile designer and interior architect Benno Premsela (1920-1997). The timeless character and practical application of this design formed part of the inspiration for the creation of Hollands Licht in 2005.
