From selling lamps to design and trend scouting
Light is fascinating and affects us in many situations. One reason for us to make it the content of our work.
For many years we have advised customers in lighting questions and sold lamps. However, since every company in the light sector has a different focus on lighting style, it was not easy to meet all the requests and wishes. With the desire for more variety and with an unmistakable intuition for upcoming trends we made it our mission to start designing and do trendscouting under “HQ Designs”.
After launching the website another important aspect of our competence area was added.
With Christine’s 15 years of experience in the lighting industry, we created the Interior Guide with the single purpose of simply answering customer questions about lighting, buying the right lamp and lighting design. We also work as freelance writers e.g. at the interior platform Houzz about lighting technology and lighting design, or do book projects such as the OKAL builder’s guide.
With our first lamp we went to the Light + Building 2016, where we were able to make first good contacts.
With the Light+Building fair, we started to report on exceptional designers and companies for the first time at HQ Designs. More Articles, trend researches and company presentations at important fairs like the Imm Cologne, the Salone del Mobile or the Maison & Objet followed. With increasing popularity, we also receive many inquiries from other European countries and various publishers.
