Talais an award-winning lighting brand, founded on the premise that good design can help mitigate climate change. From their London, UK-based studio, they explore the tension between sustainability, technology and design through their extensive collections.
When Joshua Ward, Maxwell Wood, and William Symington launched their first collection of LED fixtures, they sought to address a trio of challenges: longevity, carbon emissions, and most of all, design.
Joshua Ward, one of its founders, describes old-school LED bulbs as "tough, ugly, blue-tinted products that no one would want to buy." In this way, the trio began sketching designs while they were still students at the University of Edinburgh in 2013. For their designs they focused on beauty and designed traditional but attractive light bulbs that they tested in the market with the most demanding clients: the rooms. of the London high-end lighting exhibition. The response was very positive. From there, they expanded into more contemporary forms and artifacts.
