Speclight associates was formed to deliver cutting edge market representation, project management and specification-grade lighting solutions to lighting stakeholders across the middle east.
For decades the middle east lighting market has proven to be amongst the most challenging for specification-grade manufacturers to penetrate.
beyond the competitive market dynamics, developing transparent and collaborative relationships across the middle eastern lighting supply chain has often proven to be the achilles heel of many of the world's foremost lighting manufacturers.
It is therefore out of this opaque and complex reality that speclight associates was born, recognizing an as yet unmet niche for a progressive and dynamic partner across the entire arabian lighting spectrum.

Inter-lux to distribute Whitegoods luminaires
US lighting supplier Inter-lux has won the licence to produce and distribute Whitegoods products globally, following the closure of the Whitegoods’ UK production facility in December.
The Baltimore, Maryland-based company has been manufacturing under license for Whitegoods in the US market for many years, and has seen business there grow steadily to a point where it is the largest market for the minimalist lighting brand.
Whitegoods was one of the early pioneers in ‘integrated’ lighting, where the luminaires are embedded in the building fabric. ‘Whitegoods is the clearest brand of lighting products on the market today: ‘It’s a language’, says Inter-lux CEO, Mark Devries. ‘No other brand is as well defined or loyal to its message. It defines an overall design approach to the point that I can identify Whitegoods spaces and Whitegoods designers.’

OLED luminaires can provide distinctive design statements for a wide variety of interior lighting applications, including corporate, hospitality, healthcare, and residential. This is possible because OLEDs can enliven any environment with focal points of sculpted light, and at the same time can provide appropriate horizontal and vertical illumination for a diverse range of tasks, while exceeding current energy codes. True customization and full expression become platforms of design. Smaller-scale sculptural pieces can be created for accent or wayfinding, or panels can be linked together in flowing sheets or organic meandering patterns to beautifully light an entire room, create a visual destination, integrate with furnishings, literally move along with the user (in the form of cool-to-the-touch portable luminaires), or provide graceful transition from one destination to the next.
