British Lighting Designer: Astro Lighting
History of Astro Lighting
Astro Lighting was founded by John Fearon and James Bassant in 1997 – the pair shared a commitment to showcasing British lighting design and a passion for precision crafting quality lighting. Determined to prove that good design demands simplicity, John Fearon and James Bassant began to design their first piece of lighting (The Arc spotlight) that combined new technology with a modern architectural look from the basement of a house in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Astro Bathroom Lighting
When new bathroom regulations became a problem for many lighting brands, Astro saw an opportunity to lead the way for regulation bathroom lighting that delivered in quality and style – they continue to be the go-to brand for bathroom lighting even today.
Why Choose Astro Lighting?
Astro lighting is extremely design-led, with design at the heart of everything Astro creates. Led by a team of ten creative design engineers, the design of each piece of Astro lighting is crafted with their ethos of elegant simplicity in mind.
