About Us

For almost a century, Kurt Versen Company has been on the forefront combining art and science in the lighting industry. Our founder established a practice of designing high quality aesthetically pleasing lighting products, a standard we follow today. His invention of the legendary gooseneck lamp, which has evolved into one of the most prominent designs in lighting, resides in the Smithsonian Museum. Kurt’s innovative spirit continues to be seen in each of our products today and has been the foundation on which we built our company identity. Our philosophy is to design products to complement, rather than compete with, a broad range of architectural designs.

By continuing to use a delicate, art-deco style, we began specializing in optical design and brightness control. Not only did we establish the criteria for what lighting performance specifications should aspire to, we also delivered the lighting solutions that exceeded those expectations. Our products, developed with much research, are featured in some of the most prestigious architectural projects across the globe.

We are continuing to build our reputation project by project as we bring new and better products to market. We are dedicated to understanding the unique characteristics of new lighting sources to present our customers with unparalleled style, design and control. With the new additions, renewed excitement is on the horizon.

Kurt Versen: A Logo


Today our logo evolves with us to better represent who we are and what we aspire to be.

Take a look. We've retained the foundational elements - the familiar blue, the center icon, and integrated them with purpose into our new design. Note the four spears on the icon. They represent the three tenants of the brand - style, design, control. The fourth, darker shade, was differentiated to remind ourselves that evolution has no endpoint. It's fluid and it represents our committed pursuit to be the type of innovative company our customers need us to be.
