Tekna is a renowned designer and light fixtures production house.
We work hard to deliver Tekna's timeless lighting designs every day. Thanks to the unique combination of high-quality materials and a high level of finishing, our designer lighting goes beyond national borders and puts our brand stronger on the world map every day. We want to continue to develop and delight our customers with innovative, exclusive designs.

Tekna stands out for its unique combination of artisanal methods with timeless character. All lighting fixtures are designed, produced and assembled by hand in Europe. This creates not only a wonderful lighting fixture, but also a strong story which makes Tekna a very powerful brand. With attention to both decorative details like handmade and soldered ledges along with individual glass rods, and innovative materials like safety glass, Tekna stands out in its category.

Hand pleated ledges

To provide our decorative design lighting with an extra level of finesse and detail, we assemble the glassware with ledges designed especially for Tekna. These ledges are made from durable brass and bronze-plated for a stunning look. We choose to solder rather than glue the parts together, this reinforces the artisanal aspect of the production process. By adding these ledges, we transform the minimalistic design into a romantic and more authentic one. Tekna stands out for its high-end craftsmanship, all ridges are mitered to create a seamless look. We're extremely proud of this exclusive system which makes us stand out from other manufacturers. 

"To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail."

Safety glass

Tempered glass is used in all our floor devices including the Ilford Floor collection and Penrose design. Tempered glass is produced by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared to normal glass. Tempering results in balanced internal stresses that cause the glass to break into small granular pieces of equal size and shape, rather than splitting into random, pointy fragments. This glass makes injuries less likely.

Glass rods

Tekna values the production and treatment of each unique lighting fixture. Each fixture is produced with the utmost care and precision as a personal work of art. For fixtures such as Mercer and Stockles, we work with over 20 individual glass rods that are placed one by one by hand. Through this method and selection of materials, we create a beautiful optical illusion of both light and glass. We give the production the time it needs and make every effort to provide you with a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. 

There is a certain purity in beauty. Authenticity, straight from the heart, which we always want to express in our designs. This is why we consistently manufacture all our luminaires using pure materials. We mainly use brass because it is a valuable material with special properties that lends itself perfectly to forging, but we also use bronze, copper, aluminium and glass. To develop our luminaires, we resolutely opt for one eclectic approach: we combine strong, traditional methods with timeless character. A successful recipe that radiates simplicity, functionality and elegance. Our lighting is therefore exactly what it should be: minimal, yet expansive at the same time. Present, but not intrusive. Stubborn and contrary to numerous extravagant designs.

How it all started

Behind every strong brand is a strong team. Tekna was founded in the early 1990s with the renowned Nautic brand. It was an instant success, thanks to its pure and elegant design. Flatspot was launched in 2009. Since then, Tekna has continued to innovate and become a real pioneer in the lighting world.

In 2017, the Blijweert family took over and launched the latest Arton collection. With a passion for craftsmanship, which at Tekna is characterized by excellent quality and authentic designs, they put their efforts into growing Tekna into the successful company it has become. They are convinced that Tekna can broaden its offer and achieve even more by using its strengths to the fullest.

Our strengths

Our house stands for pure professionalism and is dedicated to craftsmanship. This was as true when Tekna was founded in the 1990s as it is today. At the same time, we want to show that we are a brand that evolves with current technology and actively works on contemporary designs. For this we rely on our in-house designer but also work very closely with top designers who know better than anyone how to work exclusively and creatively without losing sight of Tekna's core values.

We deliberately choose to work with valuable brass, a very rewarding and fine material that forms the basis of our excellent, authentic products.  To transform the design into reality, we rely on craftsmen who apply the utmost care and finesse to their work. They are always looking for methods to streamline, improve, increase user-friendliness, etc.

Tekna thinks about every step of the production process to ensure the best end product.

Thanks to our technical knowledge and high standards, we look at lighting in a totally different way. At Tekna, a fixture must first be completely right on a production and aesthetic level, before we even start looking at the functionality. In addition to realizing timeless and characterful designs, we value personal contact with our clients. Trade fairs such as Maison & Objet, Light & building, Euroluce Italy and Light Middle East are the ideal opportunity to show our designs to clients and inspire them. We enjoy presenting our latest fixtures to our customers at these special fairs and giving them personal advice or information. By keeping both feet in the market, we continue to develop. As a result, we are “always the first who’s next”.

“Our recipe for success? Pure materials, craftsmanship and solid, functional designs.”
