Outdoor Lighting for Everyone
KONSTSMIDE – CRAFTSMANSHIP AND INNOVATION SINCE 1942
Bus driver Gunnar Johansson is tired of driving a bus and sets up Gnosjö Konstsmide. Gunnar and his two employees manufacture forged products and flower boxes.
Sweden's first serially produced electric candle holders see the light of the day. The first modern Advent light candle holder is born.
Production of outdoor lighting starts.
The product range expands further in the 1960s and 1970s, especially the outdoor lighting. Copper and sheet-metal products are particularly popular.
Gunnar's children Margit, Mona and Rolf take over the company. Rolf becomes CEO.
The range of Christmas lighting has become so popular in Germany that Konstsmide decides to start its first subsidiary there.
The world's first low-current lighting chain with transformer is manufactured by Konstsmide. Going from 230V to 24V revolutionises the safety of outdoor Christmas tree lighting.
The second subsidiary is established, this time in England. Later Konstsmide further expands to Finland, Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Hongkong and Norway.
The Living light candlestick is launched and is a candlestick with a moving flame on the candles.
Konstsmide celebrates 50 years! A jubilee candle holder manufactured for the occasion is a model made of iron, which was taken from the product range but is now here to stay.
Cooperation with Disney begins two years after the opening of Disneyland in Paris. Products manufactured to promote Euro Disney, as it is called back then, are candle holders and lighting chains.
Konstsmide acquires a moulding factory in Hungary. Here in this factory outdoor lighting is made by hand, focusing on high quality.
Konstsmide launches the world's first LED lighting chains that revolutionise energy consumption and durability in lighting chains.
Brothers Janne, Jonas and Daniel Johansson take over the company after their father.
Increased interest for LED allows Konstsmide to continue expanding its product range. Its products become more elegant and more durable, with longer service life and lower energy consumption.
Konstsmide develops Soft Cable, an extremely durable cable for outdoor use, which remains pliable even at very low temperatures.
New premises are opened in Gnosjö. They include a 1 500 sq mtr showroom where about 2 000 products are displayed.
The first complete pole kit is launched in the Vega sieres.
Konstsmide launched Smartlight, a wall lamp equipped with a camera, speaker, microphone and Wi-Fi that you can access via an app on your phone or tablet. With Smartlight installed, you have extra control over the home when you are away.
A cable reel in plastic with light sets is launched for easy tangle-free assembly and convenient storage of loops when the season is over.
Konstsmide launches lounge lamps that are charged with USB and create a cosy outdoor and indoor atmosphere.
