Established 25 years ago, Forbes & Lomax have, from the start, approached the electrical accessory market from an aesthetic point of view. Inspired by 1930’s glass switches but with all the advantages of modern technology, The Invisible Lightswitch® has become synonymous with Forbes & Lomax.
In 1988 the elegant glass, nickel and brass switches were no longer available and the modern equivalents were ugly and unsuitable for the prestigious projects that interior designers were working on at the time. It was with these problems in mind that Forbes & Lomax launched The Invisible Lightswitch®, a simple, transparent acrylic plate allowing the wallpaper or paint to show through, with a stylish metal toggle switch in the centre. These switches were able to combine an attractive design with all the advantages of modern technology.
In addition to the Invisible Lightswitch, Forbes & Lomax offer a complete range of contemporary and traditional lighting including dimmer switches and socket outlets which are available in a variety of finishes to suit the demands of a rapidly changing design market.
Over the years Forbes & Lomax have added to the range, producing high quality switches, sockets and dimmers in a variety of finishes to suit the demands of both traditional and contemporary architects and interior designers as well as the electrical contractors that form the main backbone of their customer base.
