Egon Hillebrand Leuchtenfabrik, Neheim-Hüsten was founded on May 15, 1881 by plumber Egon Hillebrand as a manufacturer of beer pitchers, household appliances, kerosene lamps and storm and carriage lanterns. Under the leadership of son Franz, the switch was made to the manufacture of electrical lighting fixtures.
Success came with the arrival of Ernest Igl (1920-2001), who designed various lamps for Hillebrand in the 1950s.
Other well-known designs were from Dr. Heinz Georg Pfaender (1928-2015) the Oslo table lamp and in 1963 the Bornholm desk lamp. Two design icons of the Hillebrand company. Odo Klose designed a floor lamp model 5225.
