Robert Sonneman (born in USA) is considered an American pioneer of modern lighting. Robert Sonneman has been widely awarded, exhibited at the New York MOMA and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum New York.
After graduating from art school, Robert Sonneman started his career at the age of 19 as the sole employee in a one person lighting business and store named after its owner George Kovacs, a early modernist dedicated to lighting. While he was finishing his senior year at LIU in the 1960s, Sonneman gained international recognition for his lighting designs inspired by the European minimal style, the Bauhaus industrial style and the Danish modern style. In Milan, at age 22, he said he discovered ”this sophisticated culture of living with a passion for life that moved easily between the traditional world and the modern design that challenged it." Sonneman started George Kovac’s lighting factory before opening his own company/factory called, “Sonneman - A Way of Light", a few years later in 1967.
