Stop press. Yep. This one is going straight to the top of the Lighting Lust List (yes we have one of those, it’s very long)
Allied Maker is one of those stop-you-in-your-instagram track kind of company. We certainly sat up and took notice, immediately tracking them down. Allied Maker are a New York lighting design and manufacturer of geometrically simple light fixtures with a focus on (serious) craftmanship and high quality materials.
And before you say: Woah, that sounds out of my budget – consider that in a new build you may only require one or two bespoke light fixtures in the entire design, and the rest of the lighting can be integrated into the architecture.
Sound simple? It is, and it isn’t.
Engaging with a professional lighting designer early in the design process (yes, we can talk to architects) means that lighting can be considered, and appropriate for the design – rather than the too-often knee jerk reaction at the end of the project (and the end of the budget)
So considering gorgeous products from Allied Maker (and the like) and talking to a lighting designer can be the difference between a functional home and a truly beautiful one.
