"We create lights that touch you within."

Our motivation

There is something magical about light. With light we want to activate people's feelings and vision. Our ability to feel, to imagine and to change. In which light do you see life? That's the question we ask.

Living light

Our lights are alive. Most lights lack the living quality you know from a sunset, a campfire or a small candle. The emotional potential of light is underestimated and that's what we want to change, with GRAU.

Feel light

Our products are designed for feelings. We use design and technology to create the most valuable experience, bringing innovation in an intuitive and artistic form.

Radical wellbeing

Light can radically change your wellbeing. We go ways that others wouldn't. For us, light is art and must have the ambition to change your life.

Sustainable design. Made in Germany.

All our lights are designed and produced at our location in Hamburg, with the goal of maximum quality, durability and sustainability. We are convinced that light and your perspective on things can contribute to change.

Our history

GRAU is an interdisciplinary team of 150 employees designing products, lighting experiences and exhibitions. As the leading avant-garde in the industry, the company has been developing and producing every luminaire at its headquarters in Hamburg for three decades. Since the handover of Creative Direction and Management from Tobias Grau to his sons Timon Grau and Melchior Grau in 2021, the repositioned GRAU brand focuses on smart luminaires with sensual lighting experiences.
