Custom Lighting Design Process - Lead by Top Greater Vancouver Designer and Fabrication Team

Our custom lighting design process ensures our lighting designer's vision comes to life brilliantly and with all of the details intended. We're at the top of the Greater Vancouver lighting industry and produce amazing lighting projects. From initial design to final installation, we pride ourselves in being flexible. We provide exceptional, personalized service for whatever stage of the custom manufacturing process you are in.

Step 1: Concept Design – We Turn Sketches and Mockups Into Functional Lighting Concepts

DREAMING UP WHAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE

This is an important part of the lighting design process. Often clients come to us with no more than a sketch or a mockup. From that, we put our expertise to work to develop a functional lighting design concept. All you need is an idea. We can take care of the rest.

Step 2: Engineering & Design – No Concept is Impossible

MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE

All Karice pieces are not only beautifully designed, they’re also brilliantly engineered. To make extraordinary lights functional and cost-effective, extensive planning and testing is required. Few enjoy this stage as much as we do. We love designing our way out of an “impossible” challenge. We excell at engineering and design.

Step 3: Custom Lighting Production – Machining, Fabrication and Hand Finishing

BRINGING YOUR LIGHTING IDEA TO LIFE

During the custom lighting production process, you need to be creative, all around – as each design has a unique journey. Some components will need to be machined, others fabricated, and some may require hand finishing. Our crew and production facility have the capacity to accommodate even the wildest ideas.

Step 4: Lighting Certification – Canadian Standards Association and Underwriters Laboratories Quality Checks

BEAUTY & FUNCTIONALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISE

After building the light, there are always a few final details, like finishing and cleaning. We then test and certify your light with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and pre-hang the light for final quality checks before we carefully crate-package it and arrange shipping. Our lighting certification is met to strict guidelines.
