Occhio is one of the most successful lighting brands to emerge in recent years thanks to its comprehensive, modular lighting system it now has a unique position in the lighting industry.
The name behind the company Occhio is the designer Axel Meise, who has been setting trends in lighting design for more than two decades now.
Since 1999 the company has been headquartered at Wiener Platz in Munich-Haidhausen, Germany.
Axel Meise is a self-taught light designer. He designed and marketed his first table lamp already as a student in the mid eighties. He proceeded to lay the cornerstone for his company Axelmeiselicht with the low voltage systems which followed. In his work as a light designer he had the inspiration of a comprehensive “lighting tool” and put the first sketches for a modular lighting system to paper one night in the mid nineties – the initial idea that sparked off Occhio.
This highly innovative head-body principle is the result of the following consideration: “How do I place a light source in a room exactly where the light is needed – and how do I create the optimal lighting effect for the respective situation?”.
Occhio is the result of his 25-year preoccupation with lighting and at the same time marks only the beginning of a continuous innovation process, for: “light is evolution”.
