Hala stood for the production of quality luminaires in the modern segment.
Hala regularly collaborated with well-known designers. Peter Kos, Herman Busquet and Tom Kater are no strangers in the design world. The Hala brand ceased production in 2013. Maretti Lighting in Almere kept several Hala models alive. We also had these in our range until the very last model was sold in 2015.
