Light Bureau joins Scandinavian powerhouse ÅF Lighting

0

Effective October 2017, Light Bureau became a part of ÅF Lighting, the highly acclaimed specialist business area of the ÅF Group.

Established by Paul Traynor in 1999, Light Bureau has gained an enviable reputation in the field of architectural lighting design. Almost two decades on, the practice is mature and still keen to develop, so the opportunity to join a global leader felt like a natural progression. ÅF’s motivation is to increase its international portfolio and in this respect, Light Bureau is ideally-placed with roughly half its work being non-domestic and half its work UK based.

Light Bureau was receptive to joining ÅF Lighting, recognising how their own reputation had grown and how well aligned the cultures and objectives of both companies are. Light Bureau’s credo is Light as Craft, which translates into highly individual and meticulously realised projects based on clear strategies. ÅF Lighting define what they do as New Nordic Lighting, embracing natural simplicity, authenticity and practicality, a mature style which the world recognises as distinctly Scandinavian.
