CRISTALLUX was founded by Wolfgang Arnold in 1963. 1979 CRISTALLUX was sold to “Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke”.

The factories task was the development and production of lampshades, diffusors and components for the lighting and furniture industry.

Both companies “NSW” and CRISTALLUX were using the same basic material “Polystyrol”. Horst Schindler the technical director developed and patented the new material sheet QF2. Therefore the demand of diffusors raised extremely.

1988 Horst Schindler took over CRISTALLUX. New products, opened up foreign markets. Exhibiting on international trade fairs brought new knowledge and possibilities. Many shipping companies, shipyards and international hotels believe in the creativity and the know how of CRISTALLUX.

Since 1998 CRISTALLUX is guided by the next generation. Thomas Schindler, his wife Heike and the whole CRISTALLUX team are working passionately for their clients needs.

Since 2019 the third generation with Sarah and Olaf Schindler got involved in the company. Strengthening and building new relationships with shipping companies, shipyards, interior fitting companies, architects and designers with innovative new products and large investments into the machinery park will further secure a stable position in the international lighting market.


CRISTALLUX faces the future with greatest confidence.
