ON Industrial Design / Andreas Ostwald and Klaus Nolting, both born in 1964, qualified designers. Design work since 1996 for industrial construction, interior and product design. Among others for BenQ, DB AG and Motorola.

“The range of the North German manufacturer ANTA is geared towards lights for private and commercial use. The designs, which are created in close cooperation with the designers, are developed to series production and manufactured in-house. The collection is characterized by a reduced design language. The use of the latest techniques and the processing of high-quality materials is geared towards the function of staging the light in the room. Nevertheless, the lights are impressive as a design object even when they are switched off”.
