Axis company founder, Rüdiger Szak and his son Felix, are setting impressive trends in architecture, interior design, retail spaces and exhibit booth construction with their custom-made LED Light panels made from ACRYLITE® acrylic products.
Large-scale LED lights give rooms and buildings a striking appearance and create a special atmosphere. That’s why Rüdiger and Felix Szak manufacture individual lighting solutions called Lightpanels. Their Lightpanels products are suitable as ceiling and wall panels or for outdoor use, and thanks to ACRYLITE® acrylic from Röhm, they light up uniformly even when bent.
The Lightpanel is comprised of three panels, with the two core elements made from ACRYLITE® acrylic sheet. ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit acrylic sheet is side-lit and used to scatter the light and bring it forward. ACRYLITE® Satinice optimum light diffusion sheet is used as the top layer of the design to reinforce the uniform light effect. The ACRYLITE® Satinice optimum light diffusion also protects the panel with its abrasion and fingerprint resistance.
"Without ACRYLITE® acrylic sheet, the uniform light distribution of our Lightpanels would not be possible."

Rüdiger Szak: “ACRYLITE® LED acrylic proved to be the best product for the panel thanks to its high light output and full surface, even illumination when edge-lit. And according to Felix Szak, “We use diffusing ACRYLITE® Satinice to further reinforce the uniform light effect. This material also offers a very nice and high-quality feel, which our customers greatly appreciate. For example, there are no reflections due to the velvety surface. After all, our LED surface light is not a lamp that you simply hang from the ceiling. Our product is a very high-value, custom-made solution for architectural lighting.”
Felix Szak, ”We follow the requirements of our customers. When we presented the Lightpanel at Euroshop 2008, there was less interest in surface lights than there is now. Uniformly illuminated surfaces were mainly exciting for lighting advertisers. Things have changed since then, because architects have discovered surface light as a medium for design. We now receive inquiries from quite different areas and each project has completely different requirements, which means that new Lightpanel variants continue to emerge."
