THE STORY of phi

lichtwert phi logo


… or, pardon the pun, our phi’losophy


the greek letter ‘phi’ [Φ] is the sign used for the luminous flux (in lumens). so it made perfect sense for us to choose this basic value of light as our logo… it’s self-explanatory.

we love high-quality architecture, as, in a sense, it moulds a space. but architecture is only truly complete when combined with a stylistically assured lighting concept that highlights the authentic character of each building. for us, light is perceptible perfection.

lichtwert develops bespoke, high-quality lighting solutions precisely tuned to your needs. when it comes to communicating stability &amp value through timeless design and quality awareness, we are the expert partner you are looking for.

… we think in terms of light.

_how we work

between tradition and the zeitgeist … always keeping pace with international trends. this enables us to create extraordinary lighting concepts in our lichtwert cities (vienna and salzburg).
