WATT IS BRIGHTGREEN?
We’re a sassy bunch of tree-hugging lighting nerds creating sustainable, carbon-neutral LEDs and automation products with the world’s highest light quality for a better tomorrow.
DAVID, BARRY, AND GOLIATH
Before David and Barry O’Driscoll turned planned obsolescence on its head, the scrappy sibling duo spent their lives designing products destined to break for industry goliaths.
THE BRIGHT SPARK
A spark of inspiration in the form of a cruddy, fluorescent desk lamp fuelled Dave and Baz’s mission to design superior lights—with the world’s highest light quality and social and environmental impact.
TO BIG CITY
Dave and Baz founded Brightgreen in 2008—at the start of the GFC, in a Perth backyard. A modest house in suburbia, sandwiched between lush green trees—green was always in the duo’s DNA.
MAKING HISTORY BOOKS
3 years of sweat, tears, and R&D led us to invent an innovative optical and thermal management system designing the D900 Classic—the world’s first 50W halogen-equivalent LED downlight.
Next came Tru-Colour®. 2 more years of R&D. 1000s of experiments. We became phosphor mixologists, airflow aficionados, and CRI connoisseurs, creating the world’s highest light quality.
B CORP AND BACK PATS
In 2015, we joined the 5000+ good-doers as a certified B Corp, eventually boosting our impact score to a thumping 100.2 in 2022. Basically, our lights have a social and sustainable impact. Booyah!
BRINGIN’ IT TO LIFE
We’ll still keep doing what we do best. But, in 2023, we’re building immersive home automation tech to bring spaces, places, and people to life. Stay tuned.
