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. Acrylic is popular in a range of custom lighting applications, from flush ceiling lights to staggered chandeliers.

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.

Combining moulding, casting and CNC machining, we can help you create lenses with highly polished concave surfaces and complex surface forms.

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 can provide an extra level of freedom to the designers we collaborate with.

When designing a space, you're likely to want to create a unique atmosphere. We can help with some, or a combination of, 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 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 new aesthetic.

Diamond cut gemstones, beautifully etched brass, formed metallic sheets, and fragmented gold leaf can be encapsulated to enhance an acrylic form made for lighting. Their ease of clean and low maintenance nature makes them a worthwhile investment for any client.

To find out how you can elevate your installation with acrylic castings, contact our team. For more information on the embedment process check out our embedment page.
