Tino Kwan Lighting Consultants (TKLC) was established in London in 1979. As a result of popular demand, TKLC moved its design studio to Hong Kong in 1981 to provide lighting design services for projects in the Asia Pacific region.

TKLC started from a small studio with a secretary and an assistant designer, and sharing an office space with the interior designer firm, Chhada, Siembieda & Associates in Central. In 1990, the company had gradually grown to a size of 12 staff, taking up its own office space in the trendy Lan Kwai Fong area.

TKLC had soon been recognized as the foremost lighting consultant firm in the Asia Pacific, handling projects from Hong Kong to Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Australia, Canada & United States of America. Projects include international deluxe hotels and casinos such as The Peninsula, Four Seasons, Hyatt, InterContinental, Ritz Carlton, St. Regis, Venetian, Sands, MGM, Marriot, Hilton, Sheraton, etc and A-class office buildings, shopping malls, luxurious retail shops, residential, resorts and landscape.

In 1995, TKLC had further expanded and opened a branch office in Bangkok, serving the clients in the South East Asia region. TKLC has always been working closely with renowned architects and interior designers around the world, including Hong Kong’s Aedas, Foster & Partners, Rocco, Wong & Tung, Wong & Ouyang, CSL, W&A, America’s SOM, RTKL, WATG, HBA, BLD, Europe’s OMA, and Japan’s Kajima, Nihon Sekkei, Nikken Sekkei, KKS, and Super Potato, etc.

The offer of innovative lighting ideas by TKLC and the integration of the lighting solutions and details into the overall design are well praised by the architects and interior designers alike.

To cope with the steady growth of the company, TKLC moved to North Point, taking up an office space of 5,000 sq. ft. with an uninterrupted harbour view and a team of 30 staff.

Having recognized the rapid economic growth in China, TKLC established a partnership with a local lighting consulting firm in Beijing in 2005, and in 2010 TKLC opened its own branch office in Beijing, not only giving technical and drafting support to the Hong Kong head office but also help serving the clients in the northern region of China. TKLC celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2009.

TKLC’s goal is to continue to raise its standards of design to best serve its clients, to strive for energy efficient planning and to bring awareness to the public about the importance of lighting design since successful project begins and ends with light.
