Gotham was founded in 1938 in New York City by Harry Gerstel, a devotee of well-known architect and lighting pioneer, Richard Kelly. The company's early focus on architectural integration, optical performance, reliability and innovative manufacturing processes resulted in Gotham’s quickly becoming one of the most respected names in architectural lighting. The firm's working relationship with Richard Kelly's office established an extraordinarily high standard in commercial downlighting that became Gotham's trademark, which has continued to this day.

Gerstel was driven by several trends--the advancing technology of electric lamps, which were quickly replacing gas lamps, and the growing international influence of modernist architects, whose preference for minimalist interiors called for light sources that were hidden from view.
