Raak was founded in 1954 by Carel O. Lockhorn and is one of the most important Dutch lighting manufacturers of the 20th century. Before launching his company in Amsterdam, Lockhorn had worked to illuminate huge Philips premises in Eindhoven (where he later opened a second Raak office). Raak's tagline was Illuminated Architecture, which gave the brand prestige in producing designs that integrate harmoniously with sophisticated, high-concept interiors.s.
Raak's glass and metal, floor lamps, pendant lamps and wall lamps have an aesthetic that was both elegant and futuristic through high-quality materials with innovative shapes.

In the 1960s, Raak began to collaborate with the well-known artist and glass manufacturer Willem van Oyen. Although the marriage between art and industry was common in the Netherlands (the lines between the creative professions were often blurred and many artists also worked as designers and vice versa), the results of Van Oyen's contributions Raak were far from common. Raak promoted Van Oyen's iconic, handmade Chartres Wall Lights (c. 1964) as rendered paintings. The series was inspired by the beautiful glass plates of Chartres Cathedral in France.

Raak regularly works with international designers and architects, including E. J. (Evert Jelle) Jelles, Sergio Asti, Bertrand Balas and Nanny Still. Two of Raak's most celebrated lamps are the cylindrical metal fugue lamp by Maija-Liisa Komulainen (c. 1970) and the super simple Globe 2000 Floor Lamp by Frank Ligtelijn (1961). After its rapid success, the Globe 2000 was also produced as a pendant lamp and wall lamp. The minimalist design is an excellent example of Raak's signature style and has evolved into a vintage classic.

Lockhorn sold the company in 1974, but remained a director until 1977. In 1999 the company became part of the Center for Light Architecture in Drachten. The CLA considers light itself as a building material. Light determines form. without light, no contrast, no contrast, no shape. no space without form.

Raak became one of the most important lighting companies of the post-war era and contributed significantly to the Space Age style of the 1960s and 70s, Raak lamps are highly sought after by collectors and vintage enthusiasts around the world.d
