Summer 2015 - a number of products hang over a desk in the development department of the Nimbus Group in Stuttgart, and one is reminded of a historical quote: "What belongs together is now growing together." Some of the products are round or rectangular LED luminaires like those Nimbus has produced for many years under names such as Modul Q or Modul R – and which can now be found hanging over thousands of office workplaces. The others are the new Rossoacoutsic PADs: they are round and rectangular elegant-looking absorbers made of compressed fleece and with a formal idiom that is reminiscent of the luminaires.
An architectural brand, a creative head at the helm and innovative products for the design of living and working environments – this is what Nimbus stands for. Since January 2019, Nimbus has been part of the Häfele company, adding to the lighting and acoustics expertise of the successful family business based in Nagold.
Nimbus originated in a garage – this is the founding myth of the company. The garage together with two adjacent cellar rooms are located in Botnang, Stuttgart. They served as workshop, office and exhibition space and there was a lathe, a soldering station and other tools.
