O/M combines design and technology to create high-quality lighting solutions for diverse venues. Experience, knowledge, and cutting edge expertise, supported by trusted professional relationships, are applied every day to create products of maximum efficiency.
After 60 years of experience manufacturing lighting fixtures, the O/M brand was established in 2012. Its long journey was defined by two philosophies: collaborate closely with architects, engineers and designers to manufacture customised solutions, and a constant desire to excel.
Its association with renowned icons of architecture created products with innovative design, and made O/M a leader in the development of luminaires for specific applications. Designing these solutions meant constant testing and interation, resulting in the knowledge and experience that are the foundation of O/M today. Built on this, originality and customisation are fundamental values for the brand. Strengthening its capacity for new, tailored products, O/M’s team of specialists guarantees interpretation and implementation for each unique project.
In more than half a century, O/M evolved from a craftsman’s workshop, realizing partners’ concepts, into a structured company with factories in Portugal and Brazil. Its focus then turned to innovation and efficiency, applying advanced LED technology to all its new products. Its catalogue offers customers a variety of options and comprehensive ranges, complemented by formats and modules that can adapt to different applications.
Quality, certification and accuracy are on display at the state-of-the-art O/M laboratory. In addition to verifying products at key stages, it reduces development lead-time, and speeds customer support and requests for customization.
Beyond this, O/M’s lab allows rapid solutions to design challenges and real-time process control. Its measurement tools allows evaluation of all product parameters during development, and in support of production. This provides quick evaluation of prototypes, speeding up development internally and with external partners. Testing done in the lab results in datasheets, supporting response to ongoing activity and customization, and improving service to the customer.
Expansion into LED technology led to proprietary development of a range of O/M LED modules. Use of groundbreaking technology and expertise in thermal management allowed manufacturing PCBAs, a decisive step needed to guarantee durability and reliability of light sources and their electronics, always bearing in mind the sustainability standards and its efficiency, security and well-being demands. The LED technology driving O/M’s products obviously comply with IES LM-80. This dedication to quality extends to all components, balancing electronics, optics, mechanics and finishing with form, materials and colour.
At O/M, creativity and expertise are the key to a perfect match between design and the precision values of luminous lux, colour rendering, temperature, colour uniformity and glare.
This quality is driven by human assets, involved throughout the all cycle of product design, development, sale and, nowadays, also of product reparability or recycling. Besides collaborating with the greatest specialists in the world, O/M’s staff, working in multidisciplinary teams, ensure the efficient management needed to create the best tools for great lighting design.
