Fibre Optic Lighting
Welcome to Starscape, your source for fibre optic and LED lighting. We are a supplier and installer of fibre optic lighting systems, serving customers here in the UK and in countries as far afield as New Zealand, Japan, South Africa and the USA - to name just a few. We're not the biggest fibre optics firm in the UK, but we'd be surprised if you didn't find us the friendliest!
Fibre optics are perfect for creating that sensation of sleeping out under the stars, but they can also be used in a huge range of other innovative lighting designs, both indoors and out. Fibre optic lighting can be used to dramatic effect in the bathroom or kitchen, and the ability to separate the light output from the electrical supply has obvious safety applications. You can install fibre optic lighting in a splashback next to a bath or washbasin - or even inside a shower enclosure.
|Not every star ceiling is going to be as spectacular as this exceptional home cinema installation by our customers Artcoustic SA and Sphere Custom Design, but this gives you an idea of what is possible.|
As the photo above demonstrates, a star ceiling works very well in home cinemas, and this website now includes an area dedicated to this rapdily expanding sector.
Remember, a single light source (the projector which puts the light into the fibres) can often be used to illuminate several different lighting effects, so fibre optic lighting may be more economical than you'd expect. The largest of our light sources is capable of illuminating something in the region of 1,200 individual fibres.
A great advantage of fibre optic lighting is that the fibres and/or end fittings can be permanently sealed in place, without having to worry about access to change bulbs. As long as the light source is accessible, the actual glowing fibre ends can be anywhere - up on a high ceiling, cast permanently into a concrete floor or wall or built in to a staircase to illuminate the risers or treads.
|Another Starscape customer, Classique & Co, used fibre optics to great effect in this marble clad bathroom. The row of fibre optic end points is maintenance-free and there is no electricity in the wet areas. The light source is located in the attic above.|
Tired of conventional white light? The colour wheel in your lightsource allows you to change the colour of the output light without changing a single bulb. And, with the advent of LED light source technology, your choice of colours becomes virtually limitless.
If it's a star ceiling you're interested in, we believe that nobody else approaches this with the same enthusiasm or creativity. From large bespoke star ceilings to our star domes and our home cinema Infinity panels, we design and make star ceilings which will grace any setting.
|Fibre optics work very well in the garden, as this nicely-executed decking project illustrates. These "stars" are all lit by a single light source.|

Finally, we also provide advice: feel free to e-mail or phone if you'd like to discuss the potential for fibre optic lighting. As you'd expect, this is a subject we're enthusiastic about, and we're always interested to hear how people plan to use fibre optics. We get a lot of feedback from clients and this contributes to a growing knowledge base which helps to inspire and help new customers.
