New Evonik light studio presents glowing solutions with PLEXIGLAS®

  • Light studio opened in Darmstadt 
  • Scintillating solutions with PLEXIGLAS® 


Creative PLEXIGLAS® solutions for lighting applications combine design with excellent functionality. The new light studio opened by Evonik today in Darmstadt Kirschenallee offers a hands-on experience of this diversity of solutions.

Light creates moods and ambience, and appeals to our emotions. The light studio shows how this works. Its design turns the studio itself into a lighting design object. Visitors are guided to the different applications by a path that is illuminated at the end, signaling that the exhibition stops here. Twisted rods of illuminated PLEXIGLAS® fringe the path like grasses; the path is also flanked by PLEXIGLAS® showcases that offer insight into a wide variety of lighting and design applications. Finally, the path brings visitors to the so-called Black Box, in which they can discover the different effects of illuminated PLEXIGLAS® sheets in many colors and a range of surfaces.

But the light studio is more than just a showroom, it is also a meeting place. A long designer table with state-of-the-art presentation technology invites visitors to engage in discussions and exchange experience on the subject of PLEXIGLAS® and light. The exhibition certainly offers plenty of food for thought, showing lighting applications with PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds, sheets, tubes and rods that have been firmly established in the lighting industry for decades.

The lighting applications are grouped under the product brands PLEXIGLAS® LED, PLEXIGLAS® Reflections and PLEXIGLAS® Satinice. These names stand for a plethora of options that combine attractive design with excellent functionality, and can be used wherever brilliant and surprising solutions are required to produce unique lighting effects.

This may be the case in interior design, store fixtures and exhibition booths, atmospheric bars and, of course, in automotive construction. The creative prospects are virtually boundless. All it takes are ideas and expertise. The place to go for these? The Evonik light studio in Darmstadt.


Evonik Industries is a worldwide manufacturer of PMMA products sold under the PLEXIGLAS® trademark on the European, Asian, African and Australian continents and under the ACRYLITE® trademark in the Americas.
