Polywood is the material behind the success of LZF lamps in Chiva, a village outside Valencia where handmade lamps of wood veneer are created by people, not machines, in a former wine co-operativa where table wines were once produced.

Luzifer (luz y fer, derived from light and the verb “to make” in Valenciano) Lamps remains a good neighbour by producing handmade goods, which keeps the pollution factor to a minimum. The emphasis at LZF is on people and their needs, and this focus on the human scale is fairly evident throughout the factory.
