WOFI Leuchten

WOFI Leuchten Wortmann & Filz GmbH was founded in Sundern, Germany in 1959/60 by the Wortmann & Filz families. The name WOFi is an abbreviation of Wortmann & Filz. In 1964, their headquarters moved from Sundern to Meschede-Freienohl

Over the years WOFI produced many lamps, as you can see with Google images, but nothing spectacular.

Since 2013, WOFI is part of the EVERLIGHT Co.LTD.
