...a little on us


ambience first opened our doors in 1987. Actually, it was 1986 but due to our humble beginnings we didn’t actually get any doors until 1987. Since then our team has been leading the way in creating, designing, planning and supplying innovative, contemporary commercial lighting projects in retail, workspace, architectural, public space, residential and hospitality throughout Australia.


We have completed 1000s of projects each individually unique and tailored specifically to our client’s personal lighting requirements. Clients include a who’s who of Australian and the world’s leading brands including Hilton, Aesop, MUJI, Attica, Country Road, Mecca Brands, Grill’d, Nandos, Facebook, Nike and Rolex.


Our ethos is around ‘making light work’. From implementing behaviour change through lighting, providing unmatched technical expertise, supplying quality products that best suit your needs, our straight-forward and collaborative approach or just making your project run smoothly. ‘Making light work’ is at the core of all our thinking and ouput.


Projects we’ve worked on have won 100s of awards and accolades around the globe including AIDA, IDEA, Eat Drink Design, Lighting Design Awards, LIT, Dulux Colour, Retail Design Institute, Frame, Darc and IES.


The company was built on a foundation of technical knowledge, with our principal helping pioneer lighting research & testing in Australia. Here he is doing some light testing circa ’75. At the time this was the largest swinging arm photometer (and the widest flares) in the southern hemisphere. It was used to accurately measure the direction and intensity of light. Below is a handful of the team today.
