Light Forms North
“Light Forms is truly reflected by its people and teams - passionate, precise, and persistent. We are uncompromising with the tiniest of details, and for us, user experience is everything.”
Light Forms uses light to transform and enrich architectural spaces. Family-run since our foundation in 2008, we design and manufacture made-to-measure high-performance lighting solutions for clients all over the world, from our bases in the UK, Europe and India.
Following the principles of intelligent manufacturing, our work taps into cutting-edge technology, over a decade of experience and an in-depth understanding of the role of light in defining the function, mood and aesthetic of a space. We thrive in collaboration, working with architects, designers and developers on projects across the built environment, and we’re proud to have illuminated countless high-profile developments over the years, in sectors ranging from retail and hospitality to education and healthcare.
We’re problem-solvers and engineers, never happier than when we’re tackling a technical challenge or pushing the boundaries of possibility. Designed with creativity and made with precision, our products harmonise with the surrounding architecture to elevate the space, enhance its functionality, and inspire everyone using it.
Our clients trust us to design and make products that will improve and enhance their spaces, because they know we have the expertise and experience to deliver, reliably and efficiently.
The design and creation of high-performance architectural lighting demands extraordinary attention to detail. There is no room for imprecision or error. Light Forms’ reputation and future success rest on our meticulousness.
We love what we do. We’re proud of our work – both of our products in themselves, and of the impact we have in enhancing our clients’ spaces in collaboration with architects and designers. Our pride and passion have made us experts in our field and evangelists for the architectural benefits of lighting.
