Founded in 2006 and located in Sonoma, California, Vode is renowned for its adaptive architectural lighting systems, creating minimalistic and customizable solutions that are easily scaled to all types of projects.

“Vode truly inspires the lighting community and offers innovative solutions that embody the core values of LMPG. We are welcoming to the LMPG family 100 incredibly talented team members who are true brand ambassadors. LMPG is very much looking forward to continued success at Vode and supporting the Vode team to expand its reach globally,”

François-Xavier Souvay, Founder, President, and CEO of LMPG Inc.

The company will remain an independent brand while leveraging LMPG’s operational capabilities, supply chain synergies, and innovative technologies. The three founders will remain active in the company: Tom Warton as Brand Ambassador, Scott Yu as Chief Creative Officer, and George Mieling as Business Development Advisor.

With this acquisition, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Ann Schiffers as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Ann Schiffers is a well-known and respected name in lighting and design. With over 30 years of experience in various leadership positions, including lighting design and manufacturing firms, she is an incredible asset for the LMPG family.
