XAL is a leading manufacturer of high-quality lights and lighting systems for shops, offices, hotels and homes. The headquarters of the company founded in 1989 are located in Graz, Austria. The passion for light has brought XAL far, not only technically – as an LED pioneer for example – but also geographically: today XAL is a global company with around 1,300 employees, its own research, production and sales sites in 30 international locations, and a partner network that spans five continents. Welcome to the world of XAL.
It is our objective to develop lighting solutions, which are extraordinary in terms of energy efficiency, functionality and design. For that, technical competence and intelligent innovation are just as important as first-class know-how in production and design. These competences enable us to respond very flexibly to our customers’ requirements and also realise specially tailored LED-solutions in an extremely short time.
Daily, millions of people use Post-it®. However, the most popular custody in the world is only one of many products from the 3M company group. Innovations - exactly 109,000 patents - are part of the company's culture, and this should also be reflected in the new headquarters at the Langenthal railway station near Bern. Accordingly, the architectural office Marazzi + Paul combined contemporary design with the highest ecological and technological standards in a visionary office building. The office space for 300 employees from 30 countries is modern, open and flexible. Alfred Paul from Marazzi + Paul Architekten: "We wanted to create innovative spaces that perfectly support the new working and communication methods." The focus is on transparency and communication. The circular MINO CIRCLE LED luminaires above the roofed inner courtyard support the open and bright atmosphere. An exemplary project regarding use of space, design and sustainability.
