Our Process

Before diving into the step-by-step process of custom lighting creation we'd like to add a little caveat: Designing a custom light is a collaborative journey which takes significantly more time and effort than simply choosing a form from our existing range and adjusting the colour pallet. This increased time and energy needs to be compensated and so the investment for a custom piece is going to be significantly more than a piece from our standard range in a similar size. With that in mind, let's dive in!

Step 1: The vision

You come to us with a vision. Whether it's a reference photo, a collage, a sketch, render or a vague description of something you saw in a dream! We listen attentively and make lots of notes.

Step 2: Defining the Scope

Once we understand your vision we'll scope the space/dive into the technicalities in more depth. It's in this stage that we'll take environmental considerations, purpose, illumination, sizes, engineering requirements, aesthetics, suspension techniques and electrics into account.

Step 3: Estimate & Sample Fee

In step three you receive an estimate of the final project fee, and technical drawings/specifications for the final product. You'll also be asked to pay a sampling fee at this stage, for the manufacturing of a test product.

Step 4: Producing the Sample

In step four the sample of your unique design is produced and approved. Only once the sample has been finished can we give you the final costing of the overall project.

Step 5: The Finale

You receive your order of bespoke lights, handwoven with love.
