Nimbus places great importance on in-house product development. Internal specialists are responsible for lighting and acoustic design, especially for room acoustics measurements. Nimbus also collaborates on projects with external partners such as the Werner Sobek engineering and architecture firm. The company also involves partners from the worlds of research and science in its product development, one of these being the renowned Fraunhofer Institute.
Since 2006 the company has realised around 15,000 LED projects and fitted out a large number of buildings with its Rossoacoustic systems. Its spectrum ranges from fitting out houses, doctors' practices, schools and boardrooms through to corporate head offices like those of Unilever in Hamburg, the ADAC in Munich and the headquarters of the WTO in Geneva.
In spring 2018 Nimbus provided the lighting for an experimental research project: the Urban Mining & Recycling (UMAR) Experimental Unit, which is experimenting with construction using completely reusable, recyclable or compostable materials and products that can be separated into their individual components and returned to their respective material cycles without any residues.
Nimbus has won major international design awards, it is a member of the "German Design Council" foundation and a founding member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl sees great potential for success in Häfele's takeover of the company he founded and ran for over 30 years. He is particularly attracted by the new owner's worldwide sales structure: “I personally see this development as an outstanding opportunity and an important step towards the future. In Häfele we are not only gaining a strong and reliable partner for the ongoing development of our two areas of expertise: light and acoustics. Above all, we will have the ideal basis to give free rein to our innovative strength, our design idiom and our visions – the hallmarks which have come to define Nimbus."
