Martin Lupton leaves BDP to form Light Collective

10 June 2010 13.30 BST

(UK) - Martin Lupton has left BDP Lighting to co-found Light Collective, a ‘next generation lighting consultancy’, with Sharon Stammers.

Lupton started his career in lighing as a researcher at the Liverpool School of Architecture and Environmental Engineering before progressing into architectural lighting design. He became design director of Pinniger and Partners before becoming the director of lighting in multi-disciple design practice BDP.

Both Lupton and Stammers were, until recently, involved with the Professional Lighting Designers Association (PLDA) - Lupton as President and Stammers as UK coordinator.

A combined statement from Lupton and Stammers says: “Our aspiration is to understand, interpret and work with light in all of its contexts - artistic, social, architectural, commercial, cultural, physiological and psychological. We believe that light is an openly accessible medium that can be used to engage and inspire both other professionals and the uninitiated.

“Our objective is that Light Collective provides an umbrella and platform for like-minded and inspired people to collaborate in a multitude of ways and in different formats. From architectural lighting design, light installations and film, to education, community engagement, professional development and marketing, Light Collective is a home for, or the foundations from which many projects can be constructed – all with the medium that fundamentally drives us at their heart - LIGHT.

“We aim to spread our enthusiasm and evangelical passion for light to everyone that we encounter.”
