Profile

Lightistry is an independent lighting consultancy based in the UNESCO heritage city of Bath in the United Kingdom.

We collaborate with leading architects, designers and private individuals on projects around the world enhancing their projects with light.

Lead by our Principal, Mark Elliott, our focus is on lifestyle projects, the homes we live in, the boutiques and restaurants where we shop and dine and the hotels and resort where we relax.

Lightistry provides a creatively driven lighting solution through a collaborative design approach, integrating light where possible to ensure it’s the lit form that we see and not the luminaire.

Mark Elliott (IALD)

Mark trained as a furniture designer and attributes his focus on the detailed integration of light within architecture to his practice in this field.

Early in his career as a lighting designer Mark worked at a number of London based consulting firms, such as multi disciplinary architecture studio Building Design Partnership (BDP) and Lighting consultancy Isometix Lighting + Design where he crafted his skills as a Lightist.

A move to Australia saw Mark join Sydney lighting consultancy POINT OF VIEW; becoming a Director in 2010, Mark grew POV in to the Global studio which is now FPOV.

Proud to have worked with Pritzker Prize winners such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Arata Isosaki, Hertzog & De Meuron, Norman Foster & Tadao Ando and leading designers and & architects such as John Pawson, Ron Arad and David Chipperfield, Mark thrives in challenging situations, which demand innovation and design excellence.

2022 saw Mark refocus towards a more trailered and personal approach to his project work, creating Lightistry as a smaller team of Lightists ensuring he remains intimately involved in all projects.  With a strong focus on luxury residential projects Mark enjoys working with like minded designers and many are clients.

Marks Legacy projects include Yauatcha London with Christian Liagre, Qantas first Class Lounge Sydney with Marc Newson, Hotel Puerta America Madrid, Marina Bay Sands Singapore and Crown Resort Sydney with New York’s Meyer Davis.
