What’s Your Story? What Sparked The Idea, And How Has It Evolved So Far?
The origins of Luxafor date back to 2013 when 2 close friends were working on a project in the same co-working environment. They were distracting each other with many questions and that was the point when the idea of a busy light indicator was voiced by one of the guys. Few months later, the prototype of the Luxafor Flag was completed and the company was incorporated. Company created a Kickstarter campaign, leading to the first few hundred orders. Nearly 10 years later, Company has gained a vast portfolio of blue chip companies as their customers, implementing different products into corporate environments as well as serving SMEs and General Public.
