Samantha’s personal story plays a big part in the growth of the business. The silver lining to dealing with two years of vestibular migraine, was her raised awareness of the challenges and negative health impact of noisy collaborative spaces drove Samantha to find a solution.
She gathered local craftspeople and spent two years in research and development focused on human centred design and the desire to create an acoustic lighting Collection with triple impact – to make spaces look, sound and feel better.
Heavily influenced by a stint living in northern Italy, Samantha’s travel has refined her design aesthetic and she aptly named the business Acustico Lighting after the Italian word, pronounced ‘a’kustiko’ which quite simply means ‘acoustic’.
Samantha is immensely proud to have created a Collection with ethical local manufacturing that is also good for our planet. She has a strong vision for future collections and for the social impact that Acustico Lighting can make both locally and globally.
