Bespoke light fittings

Often we find there is not a perfect product to put the right amount of light where we want it. In these cases we have developed light fittings using our expertise in materials and manufacturing techniques to create a lighting package that is robust, long lived and suited to the lighting task we wish to undertake.
We make small LED base projectors, see our schemes for Madeira Lift and Brighton Bandstand. These are milled from solid materials such as copper or aluminium and contain LED light engines, with precise optical control for output longevity and optimal photometric performance.

We make in ground lighting for our floorscapes and individual lights that can be easily and cost effectively integrated into paving.
