About LEDCity

LEDCity's remarkable journey in the lighting industry began with a visionary bachelor thesis by Patrik Deuss at ZHAW. Inspired by his research, Patrik partnered with Florian Gärtner to develop the LEDCity tube, laying the foundation for the establishment of LEDCity AG in 2017. With support from the Swiss Federal Office of Energy, they embarked on a mission to redefine lighting solutions and set new standards for energy efficiency. LEDCity's devotion to innovation is demonstrated by their academic beginnings, which opened the path for their ground-breaking contributions to the industry.
