While building their highly functional fixtures, Holtkoetter uses only the best lamps made by Osram of Munich, Germany. Other distinctive features include dimmability, electrical conductivity, focusing and reflective functionality, or sometimes just physical beauty of the lamp and the entire lighting fixture.
A form becomes truly beautiful when it is reduced to its functional necessities. Many of Holtkoetter form designs were developed this way and over the course of time have become trademarks. Mainly, Holtkoetter uses fine brass, carefully brushed, polished, bronzed, or otherwise finished and then lacquered to the highest standard possible. To maintain their highest quality and workmanship standards, Holtkoetter has a multitude of quality checks during every step of the manufacturing process.
