Elumenate works closely with its clients to create bespoke, innovative and efficient lighting solutions that enhance the architecture, design and spirit of each unique space. We embrace the design concept from the architectural elements, to the materials and finishes chosen, to create a customized and ideal lighting design solution.
We work under the belief that lighting is not simply an enhancing element, rather it is fundamental to any project’s success. Throw open the curtains in the morning to reveal a grey sky, one gives a groan. A sunny blue sky, however, fills us with delight. Turning on a light can have equal effects, even if we don’t always notice it happening. Light is a powerful force and as lighting designers we have mastered the art of its manipulation.
