Enduring metals. Elemental design. New technologies. These are the inspiration of TEKA Illumination. Since 1993, we have manufactured elegant and sustainable indoor and outdoor luminaires.
The foundation of TEKA Illumination is our choice of lifetime materials:
- Copper - which is naturally occurring and was man's first ornamental metal
- Bronze - which can be molded into rigid shapes
- Brass - which makes for superior machined parts
- Stainless Steel - which is used on fasteners and accent pieces
The seamless integration of these elements creates a striking design statement in a luminaire that is built to last, designed for precision, and engineered for efficiency. TEKA Illumination craftsmanship is a genuine extension of our 'Quality to Last a Lifetime' commitment.
Our outdoor lighting products are equally at home on the shoreline or in the desert -- in interior or exterior environments.
Along the seashore, where high humidity and saltwater create a microclimate highly unfavorable to the life of a luminaire, our enduring metals take on a patina rich with verdigris and hues of umbre.
In desert climates, where wind driven sand, intense sunlight and temperature extremes fade and abrade any exposed surface, our lifetime materials are transformed into an oasis of beauty. It is here the natural patina is deepest - imbued with sienna tones and bronze mahogany highlights.
These finishes are possible because, in addition to their natural corrosion resistance, our enduring metals do not require any additional finishing whatsoever. TEKA luminaires 'weather' over time to eventually achieve a natural patina that is breathtaking to behold. Of course, we do add factory applied finishes for areas that will not be exposed to the elements, or for those who simply cannot wait to enjoy the beauty that is TEKA Illumination.
With so many possibilities, TEKA Illumination indoor and outdoor products are a sustainable solution to virtually any architectural or landscape challenge.
Our vision of using the warmth, beauty and utility of lifetime materials has led us to projects that not only welcome, but demand TEKA Illumination materials, quality and design.
