BEHIND THE BRAND
The Future Belongs to the Curious

From the outset, we have stamped our mark as disruptors in commercial furniture and lighting markets.

Our initial designs went beyond the traditional, re-inventing the everyday into playful, colourful interpretations of practical furniture and lighting pieces. As the business continued to grow, our design studio welcomed a dedicated manufacturing facility, which to this day, continues to combine international expertise with local knowledge and materials to create products to take to the world.

Looking back several years, we saw a need to re-imagine how open-spaces could be filled. Taking on the challenge of addressing flexibility, sound management and collaboration through design, Luxxbox reinvents workplaces and open spaces into happy, healthy, productive environments.

We have proven that from little things big things grow with the introduction of our multi-international award-winning acoustic lighting range. From humble stools and decorative pendants, Luxxbox has delivered on our intention of taking unique design aesthetic to the world, working on a global scale with innovative commercial product design.

All this done in our pursuit of passionate, curious and authentic design.
