Dark Source is a London-based lighting design studio driven by social & environmental values.
We design dark sky and environmentally friendly lighting. We work with communities, councils and developers.
Our collaborative approach aims to add visual, environmental and social values to projects of all scales.
We develop unique lighting concepts to enhance the visual and the spatial experience. Our design services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each project.
Dark Source is founded by the award-winning lighting designer & graphic artist Kerem Asfuroglu.
