www.fiberopticmuseum.com | Photo Essay | PYROFAG Fibre Optic lamps designed and Manufactured in Western-Germany. With special thanks to Wilfried Virmond for the images and detail.
Below: PYROFAG designs - PYROFAG in the 1960s and 1970s was an importer and manufacturer of lava, glitter, rain and fiber optic lamps in Western-Germany. Originally manufacturing fireworks, PYROFAG also imported and distributed beautiful kinetic lighting. As demand decreased in the 1980s for kinetic lights, PYROFAG then diversified into the precious metal business. In 2010, PYROFAG was sold to new ownership, and exclusively deals in precious metals.
PYROFAG imported and manufactured fibre optic lights and we at www.fiberopticmuseum.com are honoured to discuss the history of PYROFAG with Wilfried Virmond who ran the business whilst it was producing these beautiful lights. PYROFAG also sold and imported other designs from other companies such as Fantasia, Schott and even CIMA. Their PYROX range of fibre optic lights are some of the most beautiful with high quality and attention to detail. Our thanks to Wilfried R. Virmond for this wonderful information and insight into these lamps.
