The Solution

What was needed was a new approach. A low cost remote controlled light that was better suited to market requirements.
Cambridge Design Partnership thought beyond the client specification. Our breakthrough was to house all the mechanics in just two components within an aluminium die-casting. This ensured fast, easy and thus economical assembly.

Benefit to the Client

The finished product featured subtle, clean-lined styling, was easy to use but also had a robust remote control. As the product was to be manufactured in the far east, the entire product was designed specifically for low manufacturing cost but without compromising the quality of the finished product’s design and appearance as well as performance.
