In 1954, George Kovacs opened a small store in Manhattan, importing modern and avant-garde lighting, revolutionizing the landscape of design and illumination.
Staying ahead of trends and frequently propelling the appreciation of modern interior design within the US, catapulted the success of the George Kovacs brand well into the early 2000s. In 2002, George Kovacs Lighting was licensed to The Minka Group and continues to be the benchmark of design technology and superior contemporary style.
Despite his passing in 2007, George Kovacs' legacy as a lighting pioneer continues with The Minka Group's commitment to embody the design aesthetic inspired by George Kovacs. With a wide range of styles, all the pieces in the George Kovacs Lighting collection are marked by similar characteristics: clean lines with unexpected twists and curves, superior illumination, and sophisticated style combined with a good-natured sense of humor.
Inside and out, George Kovacs continues to light the way with cutting-edge, premium quality, contemporary lighting at a value-driven price.
