About Us

Visiolite - A pioneering force in the lighting industry since 1999. 

Visiolite began its journey in Copenhagen serving the entertainment and lighting production sector. Our clients in Denmark included iconic names such as Roskilde Festival, SeeLite, the Royal Theater of Copenhagen, Eurovision Song Contest, and Tivoli, along with numerous renowned Nordic bands including Aqua and Safri Duo.

In 2005, Visiolite relocated to California, where it continued to provide production services and custom-made solutions for the entertainment industry. The transformative year of 2021 marked a significant evolution for Visiolite. Co-founders Karl Jonsson, Arman Bastani, and Christian Vandendorpe redefined Visiolite’s focus, specializing in custom LED chips and LED strips designed for artists, lighting designers, entertainment, and high-end residential projects.

As part of our commitment to innovation, Visiolite became an authorized distributor for Finland-based Casambi wireless control systems in 2021. That same year, we launched our first exclusive Casambi product, the X-Pack. This revolutionary product addressed aesthetic challenges in adopting Casambi in the US, allowing interior and lighting designers to integrate any toggle or momentary wall controller into the Casambi ecosystem seamlessly.

Our relentless pursuit of innovation continues with several pending patents in LED and Casambi technologies. Our vision is to expand into sustainable DC-powered system offerings that integrate with leading smart home platforms for high-end residential projects, as well as DMX and ArtNet platforms for the entertainment industry. 

In 2023, we proudly introduced our first addressable strip as part of Gilead's Discovery Path project and are currently developing several addressable LED strips with features never seen before as part of our new X-Pix series. At Visiolite, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of lighting technology, ensuring our clients always receive the highest quality and most innovative solutions available.

Join us in illuminating the future with creativity, technology, and sustainability.
