Since the foundation of the company in 2010, Schneid has already designed a multitude of luminaires. They set a high value on simple design as well as on natural and environmentally sustainable materials. Their most favorite material is clear at first sight: wood.
The series A is Schneid’s first (product) development: In 2011, Schneid created a light which impresses with its very warm and descent lighting and its new organic shape that suits living- and dining areas perfectly. Due to an elaborate structure, the light subtly comes through the thin wooden slats, casts a glare-free light and creates a natural ambiance. After the A series, which includes lamps like Volum and Pirum which are still manufactured in Northern Germany, the gorgeous lamp Zappy followed in 2012. In 2013 the lamp Eikon was designed. It is an expandable system luminaire that consists of a turned wooden head made out of ash wood and a removable and exchangeable metal shade.
The driving forces behind their products are Niklas Jessen and Julia Mülling. Niklas is a trained carpenter and studied architecture. During his studies, he started to get fascinated with interior design. Julia is a conceptioner at Schneid and is brilliant with language and form because of her studies in German and French languages. She decided to go on with product design and supports Schneid since 2012. Working with young creative people from their corner is very important to the two founders of the company.
All products by Schneid are based on the same principles: “Our aim is to make aesthetic lamps and furniture with a high focus on ecology, locality, innovation and fairness towards our people and our environment.“
Schneid stands for the Scandinavian way of thinking: Our designs have formal purity, functionality and a minimalist approach.
