Credentials - Product Integrated Lighting

Mentor Lighting Solutions

Product integrated lighting solutions connect people and technology. When we think of light we often think of design and forget the great communicative added value that lighting solutions provide: from simple status displays to complex control elements. Classical lighting functions can be expanded with new colours and functionalities and enable intuitive understanding and use. Whether household appliances, industrial plants or products intended for use in public areas – here we’re presenting to you a selection of MENTOR credential projects from the field of non-automotive lighting solutions.
