My story

 

 

I was born in a late spring day of 1956 in old Nicosia, Cyprus. 

 

 

My parents decided to call me Nicolas after my grandfather whom I never met. My late father, a self made businessman and avid collector, taught me how to do business and take pleasure in well crafted and beautiful things.

 

 

Since a very early age I showed a strong inclination in sketching and drawing which later developed into a mania for designing cars. Due to the 1974 uprooting of my family, I have decided not to pursue my dream of studying automotive design (something which I still regret) and to learn law instead. A career in law seemed more appropriate with the times and enabled me to understand the complexities of politics and diplomacy, in an effort to make sense of our island’s tragic situation. 

 

 

So in 1981 I began my working life as a trainee lawyer, but soon after I decided to revive the family electric cable business with my father. In 1982 I begun learning about light and started selling lighting, eventually getting trained to design, and implement architectural lighting by much respected and knowledgeable teachers. 

 

 

Lighting soon became a fulfilling career for me, as it gave me the chance to express my character and design aspirations. Working closely with Cypriot architects and complementing their work with state-of-the-art and sensitive light is my lasting passion!

 

 

I thank all people, architects and users, who entrusted me with their en-lightment all these years!
