What’s different about humanlumen, a new British lighting brand? Let’s find out
Launching spring 2020, humanlumen is a nouveau lighting brand with a difference. Led by a collective of lighting professionals and experts with a broad range of experience, the company is on a mission to create effective and efficient lighting solutions that are as positive for people as they are for the environment and businesses.
Spanning a distinct range of sectors, including hospitality, residential, education, health care, retail, and leisure, humanlumen understands the structural form of lighting and takes a mindful approach to provide creative concepts. The brand came about from a need to do things in a different way; with an aim to change the landscape in which interior designers and consultants approach their lighting concepts. It is driven by a desire to provide human-centric lighting design and products.
At the helm is Andrew Boydell, a principal with over 24 years experience working within the construction sector on high-profile interior projects both in Europe and the Middle East. His most recent role was regional director for Future Designs in the UAE, a designer and manufacturer of high-quality luminaires and bespoke lighting solutions. Prior to that, he was general manager at The Nordeon Group UAE, global architectural lighting specialists.
Boydell has ambitious plans for the brand. He explains: “Our creative team is based in Clerkenwell in the heart of London’s design scene, the obvious choice with all the experience we have collectively in the local and international lighting market and our aim is to develop the brand globally. With the use of innovative software design, alongside the vast range of products that we design and manufacture, we will offer relevant and creative solutions.”
The humanlumen product portfolio encompasses over 3000 lighting designs including a high-specification downlight, track and spot and linear pendant range. The mix also accounts for both indoor and outdoor use to serve a vast range of lighting schemes.
