Our classic contemporary lighting in various settings
Our lights are used in a wide range of setting from medieval to contemporary, from domestic to industrial. Locklamps can be found in Architect’s homes and studios, schools, offices, kids play rooms and even the occasional workshop.
If you have good photos of our lamps that you are happy for us to use then we would love to hear from you.

The floor standing lamps are ideal for reading but can be swivelled to wash the walls with light or to as a picture light. A 5 amp plugged circuit with a low wattage dimmer switch is a great way to light a room with maximum flexibility.
Low wattage plug in dimmer switches are available for use with suitable LEDs or compact fluorescent lamps. We do not currently offer these but they are available from third parties and the technology is progressing very fast.

No room for another floor standing lamp behind the sofa so we came up with a wall mounted version.

And the centrepiece, copper pendant light over the kitchen table. The petals close as it is hoisted up and open as it is lowered.
