about us

switched on since 2002

Established in 2002, The Light Lab has spent the past 24 years bringing together combined experience of working with light, new lighting technology, manufacturing and project management to deliver high-end architectural lighting installations.   We can tackle the most complex of projects that require an extra level of integration and detail, where off-the-shelf solutions compromise the design integrity

Based in London, The Light Lab has worked on many of the capital’s landmark buildings, and has a strong national and growing international presence. 

The growth of The Light Lab has brought with it new opportunities for us to take on larger global projects; resulting in projects across the USA, Canada, the UAE and Australia. Meanwhile we continue to work with such a well of talented designers and architects from the UK, meaning the basis of our work is incredibly enjoyable and we look forward to the next decade of The Light Lab and its continued growth. 

What We Do

We collaboratively find solutions to overcome the challenges and complexities that come with bespoke lighting installations.  Bespoke features are usually only delivered once, so it must be right the first time. 

Our focus on the seamless delivery of lighting solutions spans across design integration, bespoke lighting manufacture, specialist lighting installation and end-to-end project management. 


Alongside this, we also offer a range of lighting products that provide fully customisable solutions, We believe that lighting should be an integral part of the building design and we therefore encourage creating bespoke project-specific solutions rather than compromising around existing lighting products where off-the-shelf products can only achieve a compromised version of the design concept.  We design and manufacture our products in the UK, tailored to suit each project with tight quality control.  All our products are produced to the highest level of quality, ensuring excellent performance and years of reliable service. 

By offering an end-to-end approach, across all aspects of the lighting supply/installation, our clients have a single point of contact at The Light Lab.  Our commitment to the professional delivery of ‘whole’ projects means that we keep total control over quality. 

We can take a project from initial concept idea to completion, but we are also well used to picking up projects that are further through the design process. It is never too late to get us involved. 

It has always been the philosophy of The Light Lab not to oversell ourselves. The key has been to grow slowly, collecting knowledge and expertise over time rather than claim to have the answer to everything overnight. This has led to the development of an experienced network of designers and manufacturing partners – who all have an excellent level of product knowledge.
