Our ethos is around ‘making light work’
From implementing behaviour change through lighting, providing unmatched technical expertise, supplying quality products that best suit your needs, our straight-forward and collaborative approach or just making your project run smoothly. ‘Making light work’ is at the core of all our thinking and output.
The company was built on a foundation of technical knowledge, with our Principal helping to pioneer lighting design research & testing in Australia.
Here he is, doing some light testing circa ’75. At the time this was the largest swinging arm photometer (and the widest flares) in the southern hemisphere. It was used to accurately measure the direction and intensity of light.
We have a colossal amount of stock on hand and with a mammoth warehouse, you have to. We produce & manufacture our own fixtures as well as handling bi-monthly deliveries.
We create award-winning, lighting design & planning packages for whatever your needs. Our design service is flexible and can be tailored for each client and project. This service ranges from guidance and hand sketch to full CAD construction packages including renders, lux level diagrams and section J6 documentation.
We produce linear profile and other customised pieces in-house. And when we say house, we actually mean a workshop. Our specialty luminaire designers work closely with you to craft a spectacular, crafted piece. Yippee!
We offer educational lighting CPD and workshop presentations focusing on lighting and its application. We’ve provided talks for designers nationwide, educational institutions and various industry groups both here and overseas.
