about us


Ingenuity, pragmatism and innovation have been part of L.E.S.S. DNA since its beginning in 2012. It all started with the ambitious idea to outperform the LEDs by photonics technologies through our unique nano-active optical fiber. Since then, L.E.S.S. has been regularly awarded and acknowledged - technologically and business-wise - as one of the top Swiss Startup.

Early on, we developed and constantly optimized inspection lighting products for our renown and prestigious customers in the watch industry that praise the time saving and ease of quality control offered by our products. Seeking new challenges, we actively convinced automotive OEMs to trust us in the development of thinner, brighter, low weight, yet environmental conscious, signal and contour lightings. The first demo car ever equipped with fibered daytime running light has been successfully displayed in 2017 at the Geneva Motor show and since then, we worked relentlessly to make our technology fit the complex route to automotive quality and industrial standards.

L.E.S.S. is constantly growing and consolidating itself alongside its customers. It is – and has always been – crucial for us to remain faithful to our core values: a dynamic and engaged approach– not only to our partners but also to our employees and the environment - that aims to deliver high quality Swiss-made products.

Today, we are proud to say that L.E.S.S. is an established and international, high-tech, high growth industry that uses the versatility of its technology to design, develop and deliver brilliant lighting solutions and systems that reveal the quintessence of its customers products.
