About Us

Who We Are

Lumenova Design is an industry leader in fully-integrated lighting solutions for architectural and commercial projects. With over ten years of proven track record in LED-based custom and specification grade products, we offer design, manufacturing, and supply of turnkey lighting systems.

Executive Summary

Lumenova designs and manufactures high-performance commercial LED lamps and architectural lighting fixtures. Unlike most LED providers, Lumenova designs its components – including drivers, optics and heat sinks – in its state-of-the-art North American facility. Our LED products are engineered exclusively for commercial applications: office buildings, retail outlets, schools, museums, restaurants and healthcare facilities – just to name a few.

Because commercial spaces are complex and demanding environments, Lumenova LED lamps are available in a wide range of lumen packages, beam angles, and color temperatures. What’s more, Lumenova LED lamps and fixtures deliver industry leading lumen output and patent pending dimming technology that enables a wider dimming range with less flicker.

Lumenova commercial lighting products are designed to the most exacting standards, including a unique binning process that insures superior color accuracy and consistency.

Our Mission Statement

To provide superior performance and value for the LED commercial marketplace in the form of industry-leading lumen output, efficacy, color consistency and range of color temperatures. We are committed to environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility, ensuring that our products are lead-free, mercury-free, arsenic-free, and are recyclable.

Our Vision

To be a global leader delivering turnkey Architectural lighting solutions that meet the highest levels of aesthetics, sustainability, photonic design and user flexibility.

Our Philosophy

Customer satisfaction is our top priority. We listen to your needs carefully so that we can engineer a solution that exceeds all your expectations.

Part of our design ethos is applying our knowledge of human psycho-physiological reaction to light. The human body reacts to light of different wavelengths and intensities in different ways. While a bad lighting solution can contribute to eye strain, fatigue or general discomfort, good lighting creates a space that is both functional and inviting.

Lumenova Design takes a holistic design approach because we know that a modern lighting system has to meet many different design needs simultaneously. From aesthetics to function, smart lighting to low power, and human wellbeing to Dark Sky, we take care of all the complexity so that you don’t have to.

Core Values


We thrive on creating aesthetically pleasing, advanced energy efficient lighting solutions.

Customer Service

Anticipate customer needs, support all aspects of the design process and establish long-term brand loyalty.

Product Excellence

Manufacture best-of-class products and systems.

Honesty & Respect

Full integrity and transparency and dignity for all our colleagues, customers, and community.


Our team of integrated optical, electrical and electronics engineers as well as in-house industrial designers is ready to support your project to ensure on-time and on budget delivery.

Our industry experience in large-scale lighting systems, combined with expertise in photonics, electrical and mechanical engineering and broad knowledge of luminaire products allows us to specify and engineer the best possible lighting system solution for your architectural application.  If you have a custom requirement, our industrial design & manufacturing team and extensive supplier network could provide the right solution your project.

A key focus area is smart lighting for the next generation of intelligent buildings. UNEP figures show that energy for lighting consumed 5% of global GHG emissions (UNEP, 2010). As lighting enters a new era of smart control for energy efficiency, the Lighting Lab is poised to help our clients design the next generation of smart LED lighting such as wireless data networking, programmable LED functionality, smart sensors and Building Integrated Management systems. Combined with our industrial design aesthetics, we are in a unique position to take the toughest lighting challenges off your hands and deliver a beautiful, smart lighting solution to our client.
