The roots of axis71 can be traced back to 1971, when it started out as a gallery in Paris. Thirty years later, Patrick Vossen expanded the company with a lot of enthusiasm.


The original name axis got the suffix ’71’ added to it, as an ode to the birth year 1971. In the last decade, axis71 has become a household name in lighting design.
The collections are distributed through a network of ‘Ambassadors’ in several European countries (Germany, United Kingdom, Poland, France, Spain, the Netherlands) and the United States. axis71 also has its agents in Dubai, Israël en St-Barthélemy.
Their reputation among a number of architecturals definitely contributes to the expansion of a sales network. The beautifully decorated showroom in Hoegaarden is situated in a refurbished dairy from the forties.
