John Cullen was a pioneer in lighting design. As a lighting designer for BBC screen productions, he was fascinated with the effect of light and his passion led him to found the company in 1981. He struck up a collaboration with lighting designer Sally Storey, and together they forged the basic principles that drive the company to this day, to create understated luminaries capable of inspiring effects. The first showroom opened in Smith Street, London in 1981 designed by Sally Storey and the brand was immediately recognised for its unique approach and philosophy.
When John died, Sally stepped in at the helm and continues to innovate the brand as Creative Director, with a deep belief to inspire through the power of light. We have grown from our Chelsea roots to be a global team, with offices in London, Dubai, Paris and Mumbai, working on projects across the world.
