Robinson will be based at Enigma’s new Design Studio and Showroom in Manchester city centre which is due to open later this year.
Enigma’s Sales Director, Paul Shoosmith commented: “Faye is a fantastic addition to our growing team. Her knowledge and attention to detail is excellent. With the nature and scale of our current and future projects, the time was right to get someone of Faye’s calibre on board to help take us to the next level.”

Robinson originally trained as a scenographer, specialising in lighting and set design before moving on to the built environment. After working at iGuzzini as an in-house lighting designer, she moved to Troup Bywaters + Anders and undertook the role of principal lighting designer, covering all specialist lighting design work for the company around the UK. Robinson’s specialties cover all aspects of lighting design, including sustainable solutions, best practice and knowledge of the latest lighting technologies. She has experience in lighting design consultancy for interior and exterior spaces, as well as retail, commercial, healthcare, leisure, hospitality and public realm designs.
Commenting on the move, Robinson said: “Joining the Enigma team is such a great opportunity. It’s time that Manchester and the north of the country had a true powerhouse for lighting design and supply. I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”
