Founded by renowned Royal Designer for Industry Terence Woodgate in early 2014, Terence Woodgate Lighting Limited (TWL) designs and produces lighting collections that are optimised for LEDs. Energy efficient, high output LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are driven by a compact chip. This opens up entirely new design options, enabling the light source to be integrated into the fitting itself and removing the need for conventional bulbs.
Their first product range, Solid (RRP £147-£197), is already in full production and is available from UK retailers including The Conran Shop, Heal’s and Nest.co.uk.
The growth in LED technology is causing fundamental changes in the lighting industry. With over 20 years’ experience of lighting design, Terence has an excellent understanding of the exciting design and production opportunities that this technology presents.
His furniture and lighting products for clients including Established & Sons, Punt Mobles, SCP, Objekten and Paviom has stockists overseas. Terence’s lighting designs for major lighting brand Concord Lighting have achieved £61.7million in worldwide sales to date.
Edwin Heathcote, architecture and design critic for The Financial Times said: “Terence Woodgate is one of Britain’s finest designers. His love for and knowledge of production and manufacturing makes him that rarest of things, a true industrial designer in the modernist tradition. His remarkable work in lighting blends technical knowledge and innovation with subtle, exquisite design. He is the perfect figure to integrate design and manufacture.”
Terence Woodgate has personally injected almost £100,000 into TWL to fund design, development and initial production, including tooling, prototyping, website development and branding. They are seeking investment of £150,000 to build a sustained sales effort in the UK and overseas, finance the production required to fulfill these orders, and enable the development of additional products to broaden the portfolio.
