Alongside Luminaire product were selected pieces from design-driven companies, such as Bang and Olufsen’s BeoSound 1 CD Player and Hammacher Schlemer’s Robomower.

By partnering with established pioneers like these two firms, Luminaire illustrated that design is part of a larger social dialogue, one that continuously evolves and is nourished and enhanced by all participants.
