Founder & Creative Director

Lucy Martin is Founder and Creative Director of Light Fantastic. She specialises in complete lighting design for top-end residential, gardens and landscaping as well as schemes for restaurants, boats (sail and motor) spas and boutique retail.

Her work is characterised by attention to detail and applying exactly the right lighting, and no more, to each project. The lighting is discreet, simple and easy to use, sitting naturally within the architecture and allowing interiors to shine.

A highly detailed approach is taken to the initial brief to ensure a bespoke delivery of what is required. The result is a harmonious and undetectable application of light from the smallest to the most expansive of spaces.

Follow-through is a key component of the service offered looking after not just the project but the client’s lighting requirements from the start to the end of the project.

Lucy is passionate about how light affects wellbeing and knits this into every aspect of a scheme. Inspiration stems primarily from architecture and the use of natural light, drawing on her experiences from sailing around the world as part of the crew on the winning boat in the Millennium Round the World Yacht race and being part of the first women’s team to walk to the North Pole.

Lucy is the author of The Lighting Bible, now translated into 12 different languages.

Off duty, you will find Lucy running, training for a triathlon and writing her second book.
