The founder and owner of Lichtkompetenz GmbH – Joerg Krewinkel – has been working in the lighting industry for almost 3 decades.  He founded the lighting design agency Lichtkompetenz GmbH in 2002. Copious national and international projects document his holistic approach to the various fields of application. The day-to-day business of lighting and product design is made complete by talks and training courses and strategic consulting services.



LK immerses itself in the task in order to set your scene in the right light and make your visions visible. LK brings them to light by engaging in dialogue.


LK is part of your project team from the very beginning acting as a facilitator for architecture and lighting and ensuring that space and light harmonise to the best possible degree. Illuminating don’t you think?


With LK you have a design professional at your side, inspired by cutting edge technology and design, but not dazzled by it. Our ability to apply critical reflection protects you as the customer from what is only apparently innovative.

LK guarantees contemporary, energy-efficient solutions and long-term illumination.

Added value

Light, today an integral part of architecture and interior design, can be applied increasingly flexibly and with ever more relevancy for the application. That is also why it is so important to integrate Lichtkompetenz into the team at the very start of the project and thus into the value-added chain.
