Lumonic Ltd is a young company, but with a very experienced team, set up to develop and bring innovative LED lighting products under the ilumo trademark to the global Entertainment, Architectural and Retail / Commercial market sectors.
The first products for the entertainment market are in production and futher additions to the range together with new ranges for the Architectural and Retail markets will be launched over the next few months.
Behind the company is a team whose complimentary and individual skills and experience in the LED and applied software and mechanical design areas, is bringing exciting products from design concept through R&D to reality.
Team member, James Powell has an enviable record and formidable reputation as the man whose creative mind and LED Applied Technology skills were behind some of the most iconic LED Lighting Spot and Wash products that have been launched to the global market over the last ten years. Those products set the benchmark for the industry and were demanded by lighting engineers and production companies associated with many of the world’s super groups for their stage lighting.
Recent involvements have been with the U2 360º World Tour and Celine Dion at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. You can view some examples of projects that the team have been involved with in the gallery.
The team is now totally focused in bringing its own unique and innovative products to market and in building the ilumo brand.
We are both innovation and market led and our design philosophy is to develop ‘future proofed’, environmentally friendly LED lighting fixtures incorporating cutting edge software and applied LED technology to give superb functionality and control combined with modular flexibility, optimised ergonomics, ease of use and with aesthetic appeal.
We think ‘outside the box’ and involve professionals in the industry to ensure we design a lighting unit that satisfies their needs in every way.
Our ‘modular design’ philosophy allows for multiple LED head flexibility and additional products are currently being developed for both the entertainment and architectural markets.
‘Future proofing’ our products allows for longevity, ease of maintenance and sequential upgrading ability.
Our vision is to continually challenge the ‘status quo’; to develop solutions to technical issues in LED lighting and to set the industry benchmark in producing technically superlative LED lighting units for ‘niche professional sectors’ of the entertainment, live event, architectural and commercial / retail markets. We are driven to offer ‘wish list’ levels of functionality and control to those whose job it is to provide creative lighting effects in these market sectors.
