Instantly comfortable, unassumingly elegant and accessibly priced, Original BTC designs and manufactures relaxed, familiar lighting for domestic and contract interiors. Authenticity, attention to detail and the finest materials are hallmarks of the brand. From using centuries old techniques to the very latest technology, all lights are handmade in the UK.
“I have used Original BTC’s classic lights for over 20 years. The Conran Shop was one of the first retailers to stock their products, many of which can be spotted in our restaurants, hotels and contract projects” Sir Terence Conran
British lighting manufacturer Original BTC was founded in 1990 by Peter Bowles. Breaking convention, Bowles was the first designer to use bone china in lighting, paving the way for his pioneering investment in British manufacturing.
The company has now grown to become The Original BTC Group following the purchases of heritage marine lighting manufacturer Davey Lighting and LED lighting manufacturer Beadlight. All brands draw inspiration from Britain’s rich post industrialisation history as well as incorporating modern tastes and trends with our very latest innovative designs.
