Founded by a group of manufacturing and industrial design professionals in 2002, Koncept Technologies is an award-winning innovator of contemporary LED floor lamps, desk lamps, and lighting elements for home and office. With the discriminating consumer in mind, Koncept designs and develops products that are sleek, elegant, and energy-efficient, transforming ordinary task lamps into modern, artistic fixtures.
Koncept’s product line is backed by years of manufacturing experience with surge protectors and other electrical wares. The Monterey Park, California company’s flagship product, the Z-Bar High Power LED desk lamp, gives off a brighter and broader light while consuming less electricity. Its built-in dimmer and flexible design also allow the user to bring the correct amount of light where it’s needed. Over the years, the Z-Bar has garnered numerous accolades; it earned the platinum honor from the Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) and was named one of “The Best Inventions of the Year” by TIME Magazine. In addition, the Z-Bar has been chosen as a permanent display in the Die Neue Sammlung museum in Germany.
Encouraged by the popularity of the Z-Bar, Koncept introduced the Equo LED desk lamp in 2009. This product, too, was met with commercial and critical success. A fusion of clean lines and energy efficiency, the Equo has won awards from Next Generation Luminaires, SPARK Design and Architecture, ADEX, and Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. In 2011, it received the highly sought after Red Dot recognition for design excellence.
Despite their achievements, the team behind Koncept Technologies still have their eyes on the same goal they had when they started, which is to create innovative products that set high standards in the industry and make people’s lives simpler, safer, and greener. Last year, the company came in at number 709 on the Inc. 5000 list, jumping 142 spots from its previous position of 851.
