Experience & Quality Products

Tivoli, LLC has over 50 years of innovation and leadership in the manufacturing of low voltage linear lighting for both architectural and theatrical verticals. If the product doesn’t say Tivoli on it, more than likely it is a copy or imitation.

Tivoli has always incorporated quality manufacturing and materials into their products, which are certified by nationally recognized test laboratories such as Intertek (ETL) and Underwriters Laboratory (UL). Trust in Tivoli as the brand that surpasses all others. 

Oscar Wilde once quoted “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”

OUR HISTORY

Over 55 years ago, while on vacation in Europe, our founder Mr. Ben George, visited the famous Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark. His inspiration for Tivoli came from the evening lights of the Gardens and how the delicate illumination enhanced the landscape and created a festive surrounding environment. Today’s Tivoli Gardens bears the work of some of Denmark’s most celebrated architects and has been identified as a “21st century Design Destination.”

Upon Mr. George’s return from his first visit to Tivoli Gardens, he began testing some ideas using an excess supply of automotive miniature incandescent lamps he had been selling. He came up with the idea of using them inside of plastic tubes to create decorative light strings. The Tivoli Tube was born. As history goes, Tivoli tubing has since been incorporated into building facades, interior detail accents, floors, aisles and steps for entertainment and architectural lighting.

Like the inspirational Tivoli Gardens, Tivoli products have continued to evolve with the changing needs of the market. As the first to introduce indicator type LEDs into tubing, aisle and step lighting products, Tivoli continues to lead the market in emerging LED linear lighting. As LED technology advances, so do Tivoli products.
