(UK) – KSLD has announced that it has joined EFLA Consulting Engineering with immediate effect, becoming the EFLA Lighting Design Division.

The two companies have been working together for some time, and this new merger allows the team to join forces, increasing the scale of practice and market access throughout the Nordic region.

“This move allows us to take our lighting design capability to exciting new levels, uniting remarkably complementary design teams focused on creating leading-edge solutions in lighting design,” a statement from KSLD read.

The increased resources available following the merger will allow for further expansion into other markets where KSLD is already active, including Europe and the Middle East.

Kevan Shaw, founder of KSLD, said: “I am very excited with the opportunities opened up by the merger with EFLA. In addition to the increased size and broader reach of the lighting design practice, close working with the other engineering specialisms in EFLA will open up new opportunities providing integrated design solutions.”

Kristján Kristjánsson, Senior Lighting Designer at EFLA, added: “These are exciting times for us at EFLA Lighting. KSLD and EFLA have been friends for some time and being able to go forward with one shared vision will make our fantastic team shine even brighter.”

Since its inception in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1989, KSLD has built a strong reputation in a wide range of areas over the last three decades, building an extensive portfolio of award-winning lighting design projects, both in Scotland and internationally, including the Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber, which won the 2018 Codega Award.
