In German, the word “lizard” is similar to the word “ex”. Geckos (the lizards) display exceptional alertness and react swiftly to emerging danger. These details serve as inspiration behind the choice of the name “Gecko”.

PRACHT 100 years


PRACHT also recently celebrated their 100th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, they restored a 1987 Airstream caravan, converting it into a mobile showroom and touring around Europe sharing the PRACHT experience with customers and partners.

The caravan was loaded with PRACHT’s range of innovative and robust luminaires, specially designed to withstand the toughest environments. They also added some entertainment and leisure amenities, including televisions and a bar where their very own PRACHT beer is served!
