Double première at the London Design Festival


London, September 2023


For the first time, the German luxury lighting brand Occhio was part of the renowned London Design Festival and celebrated the grand opening of the new, impressive flagship store in Kensington & Chelsea. The celebrations were attended by an exclusive group of over 400 well-known representatives of the press, design scene and London society. The highlight of the party was the presentation of the new, magical luminaire series Luna, which was unveiled in the UK for the first time.


Occhio celebrated the grand opening of its new flagship in the Brompton design district as part of the London Design Festival. Perfectly situated between Chelsea and South Kensington alongside other renowned international luxury brands in the vicinity, Occhio's ‘culture of light’ is now making its way into the United Kingdom. The evening of 21st September was the highlight of the festival: Over 400 guests – a veritable who's who of the design scene – experienced and celebrated the culture of light in the new flagship, along with Occhio's full range of products in a relaxed atmosphere with cool cocktails and live DJ. 

The brand Occhio stands for ‘a new culture of light’. Occhio's luminaires have won numerous awards for their outstanding design and offer a unique quality of light and an incomparable ‘joy of use’. The carefully thought-out, comprehensive Occhio range means that entire buildings can be designed with lighting that meets the highest standards in design and lighting quality – and thus enrich people's quality of life.

Through its holistic approach, the European market leader has established new standards and is one of the lighting industry’s most innovative and fastest growing companies. Over recent years, Occhio has expanded from being a German design icon to an international lifestyle brand serving the luxury end of the market. With flagship stores in key international cities such as Shanghai, Milan and Berlin, Occhio is bringing the ‘culture of light’ to the people.

“Occhio stores offer an exceptional retail experience, yet also serves as a hub for Occhio’s culture of light, almost like a lighthouse for the brand. says Axel Meise, Founder and Designer of Occhio. “Our private clients, as well as architects and interior designers, have the opportunity to experience our entire portfolio of products and the unparralled quality and features these offer. We want to inspire every visitor with the incredible and limitless possibilities of the Occhio Eco system – enriching their quality of life!”


Inspired by the moon – Luna

The product highlight of the event was the new Luna luminaire series, presented by Axel Meise, Founder & Designer of Occhio: a synthesis of classical shapes, new stylish finishes, surprising lighting effects and state-of-the-art technology. The stylish luminaire series opens up completely new areas of use. Shimmering with sensuality and mystery, Luna transforms any space into a place of beauty and light. The revolutionary Occhio 'fireball' light source floats almost magically, like a heavenly body, in the partially mirrored glass sphere, creating a soft, directed light that is at once powerful and glare-free. Luna combines classical design with innovative technology from Occhio, taking the light experience to a whole new level.
