The logo can somehow refer to lighting but it doesn't have to. Attached you will find a slide that in very simple terms explains our business model and hence our choice of slogan. We are looking for a logo that will combine our name, slogan and a symbol that could be used on its own (like the nike swoosh for instance).
Minimalism is crucial, not only for aesthetical reasons but also because we want to stamp our logo (or symbol alone) to our luminaires and hence it cannot be too complex, the simpler the better think NIKE, ADIDAS, APPLE logos and NOT for example Starbucks logo. Also, this start-up is a new branch of an existing company called MetalTEAM. It incorporates a few businesses and their logos lookalike but for this one we're looking for something different. Attached you will find the logos of the existing companies for your reference.
FYI: the design examples I chose from those proposed by 99 designs do not really convince me, I didn't see one that would be exactly what we're looking for, so please think outside the box, thank you!
PS: Please try to avoid the bulb symbol, it's a little bit too common, we would like something different. Unless you think your bulb is absolutely revolutionary, then we will be happy to see it :)
