It is with deep sadness we share the news of the passing of Richard Marchhart on February 17, 2018. Richard was a valuable member of LED startup, Nanometer Lighting, and had been part of the team for the past 2 years, driving product development and innovation.
Richard was an invaluable member of the Lighting community for over 30 years, bringing various European companies, such as Zumtobel, Kreon, and Richter, into the North American marketplace. His eye for the aesthetic and architectural details will be remembered and live on in the form of special projects he participated in. Richard’s zeal to innovate was a testament to his creative drive.
Most importantly, Richard’s passion for architectural lighting was only surpassed by his love and commitment for his family. His wife Andrea, and children Stefan, Trevor, and Vanessa were the true joy of his life. Family trips to Michigan, ski trips to Vermont, and trips to the East End of Long Island filled with fishing, beach visits, and nature were special experiences to savor.
