humanlumen; a New British Lighting Brand with a Human-Centric Approach
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 humancentric 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.
Andrew 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.
At humanlumen we bring together art, science and technology to create expressive, sustainable and efficient concepts in light.
We understand the interplay of structural form and lighting, and work with architects and design teams to provide original concepts. Our technical knowledge ensures that concepts become viable solutions.
We also know how lighting affects people at home, at school and at play – not just inside but for outside spaces too. This equips us to develop schemes that are as positive for people as they are sustainable for the environment and for businesses.
It’s our aim to have our clients to think strategically about lighting – whether the goal is to use the visual and emotional impact of light to strengthen brand experiences or to lower carbon emissions and save on energy bills.
Our brand portfolio covers key sectors including workplace, education, residential, health care, sports and leisure, retail, hospitality and transport hubs. We make commercial sense while improving quality of life.
