Europe's Masters of Illumination
For over 25 years now, we've been creating inspired lighting solutions for top designers, architects and specifiers on flagship projects across the world.
Driven by their bigger and brighter visions, we're now celebrated around the globe for our lighting innovation, exceptional quality and unequalled performance - and all delivered in a very British no-nonsense way.
Founded in Leeds as Kemps Neon in 1989 by siblings, Mark and Mandy Kemp, it didn't take long for our passion for pushing the boundaries to shine through. Kemps was soon enjoying the limelight as one of the UK's largest, most reliable suppliers of high quality neon signage for many of the UK's sign companies.
As the market for neon signage boomed, Kemps continued their thirst for innovation investing in new technology to drive their expertise forwards into Cold Cathode lighting. In the year 2000, we invested in a brand new purpose-built factory which allowed our team to use their experience and love of the medium to develop a new range of Cold Cathode products that answered the advancing demands of lighting designers across the globe.
Today Kemps Architectural Lighting Ltd are recognised across the globe as icons of British Cold Cathode manufacturing and can offer the largest range of convertors and transformers in the world for cold cathode lighting systems. Our reputation for excellent LED technology is also going global, so wherever you are in the world, we are well-equipped to take your inspirational Cold Cathode or LED schemes from idea to installation.
Showcasing the best in British architecture, the RIBA awards are an exciting source of inspiration. We looked through all the winners to pick our four favourite projects for architectural lighting innovation.
