We work with interior designers, architects and private homeowners, as well as directly with specifiers and procurement departments. You may want a one-off piece for your home, you may want lighting design and consultancy for a building or venue refurbishment, or you may be sourcing hundreds of similarly styled lights for a chain of national or international restaurants or hotels. The process is in essence the same:
• Initial discussions and briefing. Together, we’ll identify what your ultimate aims and expectations are. You might show us mood boards, sketches or imagery of lighting or entire settings. We’ll discuss materials, colours, effects, wiring requirements, and establish a budget that will enable us to provide exactly what you’re hoping for.
• Our designers sketch lighting design concepts for your approval. Where appropriate, we’ll visit site and consult on everything from lumen levels to wiring and aesthetic.
• Once the initial design is signed off, together we’ll agree colours and materials, and provide samples for larger orders.
• With designs, colours, textures and materials signed off and timescales agreed, we work with our materials suppliers and specialist craftspeople to fulfill your order on time and on budget, delivered to the site of your choice.
Optime Lighting products are shaped by master craftspeople. There’s love and years of experience in every detail. Let us craft your custom lights.
Guided by your lighting design brief and with all due attention to safety considerations and applicable building regulations, we’ll work with all manner of manmade and natural materials in turning the concept into reality.
Much of the manufacture takes place here at our dedicated workshop, but we also have a network of highly skilled and trusted specialist craftspeople who contribute their considerable expertise, including:
All of our materials – from light fittings to machined moulds, paints to ropes and chains – are sourced ethically, and locally wherever possible.
