  4. 4. 2 HARALD KNY IS THE THIRD GENERATION MANAGING THE FAMILY BUSINES LOCATED IN RAMINGDORF, LOWER AUSTRIA. THE COM- PANY KNY DESIGN,FOUNDED IN 1956,SPECIALIZES IN PROVIDING INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR LIGHTING DESIGN – FROM “CLASSIC CHANDELIERS“ TO GLASS FACADES AND LIGHT SCULPTURES MADE OF METAL. The client basis is diverse: the austrian specia- list provider develops innovative lighting solu- tions for public buildings, churches, mosques and conference centers as well as for casinos, ships or hotels. “However, there is one thing that has remained unchanged: our focus on core competencies,” says CEO Harald Kny. The core competencies are: lighting design, glass design and metal construction. Our lighting design ranges from the manifactu- ring of classic chandeliers to ship and bridge lighting and customized lighting. Glass design includes glass facades as well as glass partition walls and glass doors. In the area of metal construction, we design and ma- nufacture façade canopies, special staircase banisters and light sculptures. In all these fields Kny Design uses further in- novates state-of-the-art technologies. For ex- ample, completely new light surface types can be realized with specially adapted LED techno- logy, and “stories in glass” can be created with laser endography. Other innovations at Kny Design include appli- cations in the field of inductive (wireless) ener- gy transfer. The Austrian family business is internationally oriented: exports go to Germany, Arab coun- tries, Russia, China and India. The company’s export rate is around 70 percent.

  7. 7. 5 „MANY PEOPLE ASK ME HOW IT IS POSSIBLE TO PRODUCE SUCH HIGHLY SPECIALIZED HIGH-TECH PRODUCTS IN THE SO CALLED “BACK WOODS“. MY RESPONSE: FIRST OF ALL AUSTRIA IS BY NO MEANS AN ECONOMIC BACK WOODS ON A GLOBAL SCALE, AND SECONDLY, ESPECIALLY RURAL AREAS PROMOTE TWO FUNDA- MENTAL ATTITUDES: A FOCUS ON PEOPLE AND SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MANAGEMENT.” For Harald Kny and his 50 employees “sustain- able business management” and “focus on people” means careful use of resources and environmentally friendly production, social re- sponsibility and economic success. “And wi- thout our highly skilled and qualified emplo- yees, the massive technological advances of recent years would not have been possible.” Harald Kny is the third generation heading the family business founded in 1956. Kny Design specializes in innovative solutions for lighting design – from “classic chandeliers” to glass facades and light sculptures made of metal. “However, there is one thing that has remained unchanged – our focus on core competencies: lighting design, glass design and metal const- ruction”, says CEO Harald Kny. INSPIRATION THROUGH DIVERSITY Kny Design is internationally oriented: Exports go to Germany, Arab countries, Russia, China and India. The company’s export rate is around 70 percent. “Inspiration through diversity” means living up to best practices on a daily basis. “Having cli- ents all over the world means being able to re- cognize and use the energy and differences of divergent cultures.“ Harald Kny, CEO <-

  30. 30. 28 OUR QUALITY STANDARDS ARE FAR ABOVE WHAT OUR COMPE- TITORS OFFER. YOU, AS OUR CUSTOMER, CAN REST ASSURED TO RECEIVE ONLY THE BEST. STARTING FROM THE DESIGN PHASE, WE PLACE SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON CONCEPTS FOR WHICH WE DO NOT SKIMP OUT THE DETAILS. Some make their purchasing decisions based solely on the price. We do not claim to be a low- cost provider, real quality has its price and the connoisseur will always take this into conside- ration. Our products are – in terms of what you as the customer get – good value but not low- cost. You will be able to enjoy our products for many years to come. During casting, even fine ornaments are clean in detail. Our castings use a special alloy cont- aining silver – the price of this alloy is three times higher than that of brass. For bands, ho- ops, lamp-holder brackets etc. pure brass is used, which undergoes ennobling. All electrical cables are silicone-sheathed and designed for continuous temperatures of 180°C. Clamps and lamp holders are made out of ceramic. Electrical problems do not occur even after using the lamps for many years. The ennobling, be it gold or silver, is well above lighting-industry standards. All supporting structures within the chande- liers are made entirely of stainless steel. Furthermore, we greatly value the use of the highest quality crystals. Wherever possible we use only the finest Swarovski crystals. Shapes, which are not offered by Swarovski, are manu- factured by ourselves in the highest possible quality.

  36. 36. 34 KNY DESIGN HAS BUILT A BRIDGE BETWEEN TRADITION AND INNOVATION - A SMALL, BUT HIGHLY SPECIALIZED AUSTRIAN FAMILY OWNED COMPANY THAT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIRE- MENTS AND EXPECTATIONS. Bruno Kny, born in 1903 in Steinschoenau, Sudetenland, started his career in his home country as the manager of the largest chande- lier producer in the Austro-Hungarian monar- chy. After fleeing from Sudetenland he came to Upper Austria and was able to gain a foothold there very soon. At first, he was employed in a company as head of chandelier production. Later he was appointed plant manager. In 1956, Bruno Kny, together with his son Ge- rold Kny, founded the company Bruno Kny & Son in Ramingdorf. Currently, the company has Harald Kny at the helm, the third generation and grandson of the founder. He was appointed managing director in 1989. At the beginning, the focus was on living room lighting, particularly on Maria-Theresia chan- deliers. Today the programme range has been subs- tantially diversified. Now we offer master plans for mansions, hotels, restaurants, ships and public buildings. Our production and supply capabilities include high quality furniture, decorative lighting for indoor and outdoor use and ornate metal and glass for interior and exterior architecture.
