Conservation Through Beauty

Started by friends at the University of Edinburgh in 2015, Tala was founded on the premise that good design can help mitigate climate change. From our London-based studio, we explore the tension between sustainability, technology and design through lighting.

A seamless switch

We believe that beautiful objects and efficient technology belong together. Our in-house R&D team and engineering lab combine the best of British design with superior componentry to prolong the life of each light bulb for as long as possible. On average, a Tala bulb uses 90% less energy than a traditional incandescent bulb. And it won’t need replacing for 10-15 years.

Every idea starts with a seed

We think it’s pretty cool that trees absorb carbon dioxide to grow and produce oxygen. By planting more we can reduce carbon emissions and increase our impact. That is why we support reforestation programmes around the world. By choosing Tala, you are helping restore a healthy planet for future generations.

Built to last

Today, Tala designs and supplies a whole variety of lighting products. From the functional to the decorative, our LED bulbs and accompanying fixtures illuminate the interiors of homes, offices, designer studios, stores, cafes, restaurants and hotels. Our full range can be found at some of the finest showrooms and boutiques around the world. And with the team now counting over 30 passionate people in London and New York, the future is bright.
