Kalmar it is an extension not only of the Austrian culture and the modernist expression, but also of a very personal history: during 130 years, it has been a place of traditional craftsmanship and progressive experimentation.
Shortly after Julius August Kalmar founded the company at 1881, he presented works made of cast bronze at the Vienna Commercial Exhibition of 1888, and were immediately hailed for their perspective on the future and meticulous construction. His son, Julius Theodor Kalmar, years later, gave the company a new direction by developing lamps for the prestigious architects Josef Frank and Oskar Wlach.
Today the company conceives new designs that make reference to the rich past of Kalmar and anticipates social and cultural trends that will shape future interiors. Its lamps are installed in prestigious sites such as the Presidential Palace of the Moscow Kremlin, the RMS Queen Mary 2, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, as well as luxury hotels of the Ritz-Carlton, W Hotels, Waldorf Astoria, Shangri-La , Grand Hyatt and Mandarin Oriental.
