Garden Light Design

Litefirst® is a new, high specification lighting system that has been designed to be located in domestic gardens. The units are low profile, yet produce high quality light with broad ground coverage. The flexible design means they can be used as up-lighters, patio and wall mounted units.

The utilisation of a revolutionary light engine combined with the latest technology in LED’s means the lights consume very little power, but produce bright and uniform light.

Litefirst® and Optima have partnered on many projects over the years and approached Optima to design the enclosure to have a ‘high quality’ look and feel. In response, our team created a modular light that utilised similar parts to create a range of flexible lighting options. This ensured the desired performance characteristics but reduced overall part count and tooling costs.

Presently the light design is in advanced development phase, including the testing of working prototypes and tuning of the lights to ensure optimal performance characteristics. The presentation models are to be used for initial promotional activity and to seek further funding to move the concept towards production.

Keith Watkins, MD said “I’ve worked with Optima on the design of electronic enclosures. I wanted a company that could design a great looking product and be simple to manufacture. I’m now looking to get the design into production and can’t wait to see the product for sale”

This has been a great project for Optima, we have followed the classic design process of brief, concept generation, concept development, prototypes, renderings and tool ready CAD.
