Sophisticated but not elitist ... this is how Thomas Schulte, the owner and director of Next see your home collection. Perhaps this was the premise that, instead of doing that depended on major name for helping start a new company, Next worked even better with young unknown designers. The decision was risky but it was good. In the first light + building of Next, in 2000 won several awards from the Association of German Manufacturers (Bundesverband des Kunsthandwerks). In following years continued to expand the collection in a joint collaboration with the design studio Büro für Form.
Still, it was established a connection between the products that succeed for their good humor (like Dicke Trude or flipflap, for example) to luminaires that convince with their functionality (as Molecular_Light).
