We are growing our London office and so we are looking for Junior Designers and Interns to join us.
At the core of our shared culture is the belief in Light as Craft, by which we mean a tailored approach to all of our projects and an investment in the time we take to create our designs.
Light Bureau became part of ÅF Lighting in 2017, making us part of a group of 100 skilled designers across Scandinavia and Europe working on cutting edge projects from under-sea restaurants, masterplans on islands in the arctic circle to Smart Cities more
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. more
This is the first part of a two-part blog examining Lighting as a Service, a relatively new idea in the lighting space but one that is becoming more popular. The first part will look at the context around LaaS, and the second part will explore the role of design.
Light Bureau London is looking to expand our fantastic team by adding a Junior Designer. If you are creative, resourceful, and passionate about light then you will feel right at home. Your background should be from architecture or other design professions such as product/industrial design or architectural/theatre lighting. Previous experience in an independent lighting design studio would be advantageous but is not a requirement. more
Our Scandinavian office is celebrating its 1-year anniversary today, 1st June. We have formed many new and exciting relationships and our first handful of projects are nearing completion. We would like to mention a couple of these and thank all of our wonderful design partners for a great collaboration so far: more
The latest addition to the Light Bureau team is Anna. After completing a BA degree in Illuminating Technology and Light Sources followed by a Masters in Architectural Lighting design, Anna decided that England was the right place for her. She worked as a Lighting Designer in London for a year before joining Light Bureau.
Anna tells us that one of the main reasons that she was keen to join the team at Light Bureau was because she had researched into previous projects which Light Bureau had completed and knew these were the sort of challenges that she was interested in. Anna’s high levels of creativity and her passion to achieve perfection is inevitably going to be very beneficial for the company.
We welcomed Rolands to our team at the beginning of July, he has a wealth of experience in architectural lighting design gained through a BA degree in Architectural Technology and Construction Management in Denmark and his current studies of a Masters in Lighting Design in Stockholm. After completing his Degree in Denmark, Rolands returned to his home country of Latvia where he worked for 2 years and a half as an Architectural Assistant.
Rolands tells us that he joined Light Bureau due to their impressive status in the lighting field, which has been established over many years, so we hope we can live up to these high expectations! Rolands is undoubtedly a positive addition to the Light Bureau team largely due to his strengths in computer work and his attention to detail.
