We create high-quality, sustainable LED lights for homes, offices and every space in between. Lights people can be proud to switch on because they look great, lift the soul and are gentle on the planet.

The creators of beautiful, sustainable lighting.

Tala was founded in 2015 by Josh, Max and William. Three friends from Edinburgh University who believed great design was the fastest way to a low-carbon world.

Since then we’ve become one of the leading lights in design-led, sustainable lighting: proud to be creating lights that are gentle on the planet, make homes look great and make life feel brighter.

There are over 30 of us here in Team Tala. United by a belief that design can change the world. We work together in our studio in East London. Then we send our lights all over the world.
