Bespoke lighting for domestic and commercial projects
We always welcome the chance to develop one-off lighting solutions. Projects have included an Architect’s office, a shop, developer housing, a night club, a school and desk lights for a council office. Sometimes we have to start from scratch to solve a particular problem but we can often adapt a tried and tested solution to meet a specific need.
Old Holloway Passivhaus
Architect and self-builder Juraj Mikurcik has designed and built a very special home and we are really pleased to have supplied so many of the lights. The wall mounted reading light for the sofa was Juraj’s idea as there wasn’t enough space behind it for a floor standing lamp.
The one-off copper suspended table lamp was quite a challenge as we decided it would be neat if it closed up like a flower as it was raised! However it did lead to a much simpler version which is now available off the shelf.
This was our first collaboration. Unsatisfied with available products, award winning Architects Architype commissioned us to design and manufacture a range of energy efficient lights for their new office buildings. Photos courtesy of Architype, Leigh Simpson & Juraj Mikurcik.

Ty Pren Passivhaus
We provided wall lights and pelmet fittings for this Passivhaus in Herefordshire designed by Dempsey Decourcy Architects and built by Mike Whitfield Construction. Originally developed for a housing development in Oxford, the pelmet brackets are extremely simple but are the result of many hours of experimentation.
Master’s House Ledbury
Bespoke lights for the reception and work desks for the recently completed renovation of the Medieval Master’s House in Ledbury. Renovation by Butler Hegarty Architects and Speller Metcalfe Construction.
Our wall lights display classroom names with a planetary theme. The artwork is simply sandwiched between two clear sheets and can be changed in an instant.
House Extension Herefordshire
Here we used standard LockLamp components in a new way to provide task and ambient lighting for this super insulated kitchen extension by the Architect Howard Meadowcroft.
The Greenshop Stroud
We developed a range of wall lights for the Greenshop Stroud including some large etched mirror lights based on the ones we developed for Architype’s office. We also supplied some of our standard pelmet lights to provide wall wash.
