We nurture every ounce of talent so that it can truly shine.

Built from the bootstraps up, we’ve grown from a hard-grafting husband and wife team to a leading commercial lighting supplier in the UK. A company of dedicated designers and technicians with over 1,500 commercial lighting projects under our belt. We live and breathe design, channelling each dazzling ray of creativity into every lighting project —be it office fit out, lighting for data centres, or funky gym lighting- delivering your vision with intelligence and beauty.
