Forbes and Lomax.

Thanks to David at Forbes & Lomax for sending me information on their beautiful lighting controls.Established in London twenty years ago, Forbes & Lomax have from the start approached the lighting control market from an aesthetic point of view. The elegant glass, nickel and brass switches of the 1930s were no longer available and modern equivalents were considered ugly and unsuitable for high end projects by the company. 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 center. To complement the Invisible "Lightswitch" a complete range of dimmers and outlets are also available. The company also offers unlacquered brass, nickel silver, brushed stainless steel and antique bronze switches, all of which are accompanied by a full range of matching outlets.
