Manufacturer Chat: Optaled and Retrofit lighting

If you care to, you’ll probably find a pattern as to how retrofit lighting projects come about, but there’s sufficient variety in client approach, expectation and simple technical resolution for this kind of work to be considered alongside the very best in bespoke lighting solutions.

We asked Julian Birch, MD and owner of Optaled and Elizabeth Cooper, senior designer at Arup in Leeds to tell us all about the recent renovation of the studio lighting in the Arup offices.

Thanks to Julian and to Liz for the time and their insights into the process.


Liz has published her own account of the project. Read Circular Lighting in the Office on Liz’ LInkedIn page.
