If you have a project you'd like to get started or you're not sure how to proceed, we can help.
Focus or Disperse
Well known for its versatility, acrylic has many properties that make it an attractive material for bespoke lighting solutions.
Its high optical clarity and suitability for small batch manufacture make acrylic a genuine alternative to glass when creating forms to disperse light.
At Midton we exploit our unique production techniques to craft bespoke lenses for ambient, task and accent lighting.
To focus, disperse or create amazing caustic effects with an acrylic lens get in touch.
Soften, Scatter, Diffuse
An acrylic lighting diffuser is an ideal material for softening your LED light source.
With the range of techniques available we are able to provide an extra level of freedom to the designers we collaborate with.
If you're designing a space and want a unique atmosphere we can help with some or a combination of all the following techniques.
- Soften light with subtle variations in opacity and colour tone.
- Scatter your light with unique shape and form, surface texture or frosted finishes.
- Diffuse light with multi-layered castings and unique material effects.

Bounce + Reflect
Intensify light at source or create passive light with custom made acrylic lighting reflectors.
Acrylic casting offers a unique and innovative alternative to traditional products when it comes to bouncing or reflecting light.
Our ability to form faceted surfaces and suspend fragile or fragmented objects in optically clear custom materials enables you to create a totally new aesthetic.
Diamond cut gemstones, intricately etched brass, formed metallic sheet and fragmented gold leaf can all be encapsulated to enhance an acrylic form.
