Howard Tee from Hotbeam sheds some light on their LED Lighting.

Company Profile: Hotbeam


June 21st, 2010

What does your company supply?

LED Lighting.

How did your company come about?

Hotbeam was born out of an interest in electronics and the emergence of LED technology in 2003. We were formed just as solid state lighting began to become practical and we could see the potential to change the way our surrounds are lit. Since then we have worked hard to provide products that are technically and environmentally sound. We really can call ourselves pioneers in this area – we were there at the beginning – with passion.

Where do you distribute?

Around Australia.

Describe your customers.

Architects, Specifiers, Lighting Designers, Lighting Engineers.

What sets your company apart?

A really good technical knowledge of the products we sell. A great range of high performance products.

Who should we speak to when specifying?

Howard Tee.

What are your client’s priorities at the moment?

Energy efficiency and sustainability, good technical design.

What is good design to you?

Technical design is at the heart of all of our products and at the heart of designing functional luminaries with LED technology.  Design for me is about problem solving and working around technical limitations.

We are often enabling our clients to realise their creative vision. The pay off is when an elegant design solution emerges  and the technical and creative design come together.

What does the future hold?

We need to rethink how we light our environment. We need to move away from the tradition of a fixture on the ceiling lighting up a room to new applications that make lighting more functional and efficient – not to mention beautiful.
