Soften, Scatter, Diffuse
Acrylic is an ideal material for softening or diffusing you're 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 your 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 surface texture or frosted finishes.
- Diffuse light with multi layered castings and unique material effects.

Focus or Disperse
Well known for its versatility, acrylic has many properties that make it an attractive material for 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.

Great partnerships - Great projects
We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Midton, and are extremely and consistently thrilled with the products created for us. Not only do we trust in the team to deliver quality every time, we also very much appreciate the excellent service provided; we’re well looked after and feel valued as a client, but equally the same can be said for our orders – always carefully and caringly packaged, and delivered on time.
Midton designed us a beautiful financial tombstone for us using a combination of different materials – wood, acrylic and metal. A very reliable and professional service with a quick turnaround time and reasonable pricing. Would definitely recommend them to any business looking for something genuinely unique that they can be proud to display in the office or send to clients.
Midton met our needs perfectly and were an easy company to deal with. We had an idea for a corporate memento which didn’t quite work however Midton made some suggested changes and turned this into a very successful product. They understood our requirements, suggested alternative ways to meet these requirements and were flexible in what they offered. We would certainly use their services again.
