History of designer: BAG Turgi, a Swiss designer company, had its base in the Vogstang district of Gebenstorf. It was known as one of the largest lighting manufacturers of the 20th century. They created lighting for housing development projects, streets, sports stadiums and hotels.
The company changed its name to BAG Turgi in 1987. It continued under this name until 1995, when it was allied forcibly with Siemens-Albis, and many of its individual businesses were sold off. Eventually, in 1998, BAG Turgi Electronics was born and this company relocated to Arnsberg in 2002. It continued to produce ballasts for fluorescent lamps under the name of BAG electronics GmbH. Today, it has been re-named again and is known as BAG Immobilien and is involved in the management of real estate – a far cry from its humble roots in lighting.
NY Showplace is fortunate to carry some of the rare pieces of their exquisite lighting designs.
