Nulty completes 10 years in the lighting industry
International lighting design practice Nulty is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. The company has grown substantially over the last decade and has delivered lighting schemes in some of the most glamorous locations. From Bloomingdales to Browns, and from Nike to The Ned, Nulty has worked with some of the biggest brands and clients covering an impressive range of sectors.
Split across the UK, US, UAE, and Asia, the award-winning lighting design practice currently boasts an impressive roster of projects, from the recently completed Pudu Pudu by Dr Oetker store in LA to the transformational illumination of Leake Street Arches in London.
At its inception a decade ago, Nulty began life as the brainchild of Paul Nulty, a renowned lighting designer and champion for the wider built environment. With a dream to disrupt the lighting industry and fashion it into a more dynamic world, Paul pushed boundaries that were unexpected and unique. “Lighting is incredibly important.”, he says. “It’s the conduit for the primary sense of light. If you light a space well it changes and can emotionally connect a person with that space. I think that there wasn’t really anyone in the industry getting that messaging across and there were very few people willing to take that risk. I wanted to build a brand that would champion the importance of light.”
Fast forward to 2021, and the company has grown from a small core team into a bustling hub of almost 50 employees. With a larger team, comes greater opportunity, and in the past few years, Nulty has become one of the leading lighting design studios in the world, with many clients citing them as their first choice of the designer to implement light on a project. The last decade has seen the team deliver innovative lighting solutions on projects such as the Superdry Flagship Store, The United Nations, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, Manchester United Stadium Store and Chelsea Barracks, to name a few.
