Hala is one of the first light companies of The Netherlands, originated in 1932 in the city of Zeist and later moved to Amersfoort.
Herman Theodoor Jan Anthoin Busquet, the designer of many Hala lamps (as always been said) is also the founder of the company.
In 2011 Hala took over Dijkstra Lampen from Haarlem, also in the Netherlands. In 2013 Fokke Dijkstra junior was in a position to buy back the company his grandfather started. “Making lamps is in our genes” thus Fokke Dijkstra jr.
Today the company is located in Almere (since 2008) and is part of Maretti Lighting. A lot of Hala lamps are still for sale in the Maretti webshop.
