Automotive Interior Lighting

The application


More than just a nice appearance

In times of increasing mobility, we find ourselves spending many more hours in cars. To make the time you spend as pleasant as possible, SCHOTT has developed a wide variety of lighting solutions that will turn driving into an experience.  

Light guides made of glass fibers in conjunction with modern LED light sources support the trends in the area of interior design. Glass fibers are composed of a natural material. Because they are also flexible, they can be easily integrated into small installation spaces. Thanks to their excellent optical properties, they combine functional and ambient lighting into a successful overall solution.

SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging among the best BMW Suppliers

BMW Supplier Innovation Award 2011
In November 2011, 25 companies competed for the first BMW Supplier Innovation Award in nine different categories. A maximum of three of the best suppliers in eight different categories plus a special class made it onto the shortlist. SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging was among them and supplied the interior lighting for the BMW MINI Countryman.

The SCHOTT division competed in the category “New Technology Experience”. The main reason for SCHOTT’s nomination was its role in providing the ambient interior lighting for the BMW MINI Countryman. BMW was particularly impressed with the fact that SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging had been able to offer outstanding lighting technology with its sidelight technology, but also managed to ramp up a new automotive production line in only three months.
