This year, we have the privilege of celebrating our 30th anniversary as architectural lighting specialists.

Since Jadecross’ inception, we have evolved from being a small Sydney studio, founded by Dennis Van Someren, to one of Australia’s leading architectural lighting specialists for indoor and outdoor applications. Paving our foundations in the hospitality industry in 1992, providing lighting solutions for hotels across Australia and the Asia Pacific. In 2002, the natural evolution was to move into the commercial lighting industry – with a conscious movement to focus on electrical engineers, architects and lighting designers as our key clients. Concurrently, we began a relationship representing professional lighting brands Efficient Lighting Systems and Ligman. Two brands which we are proud to continue a strong and fruitful affinity with. 

Between 2002 and 2004, Nick and Ben Van Someren and Alistair Proctor began working for Jadecross and by 2008, the three became Directors. In 2014 Jadecross’ repertoire continued to grow as we became the exclusive NSW Channel Partners for German-based brand ERCO.

Now in 2022, we are proudly representing a host of architectural lighting brands including Australian owned and operated Coolon, LPE Group, Gardens at Night along with our partnership with Xero Linear Lighting Systems. 

Reflecting on the last 30 years of our journey, we’re so pleased to have contributed to so many successful, iconic projects. From Harry Seidler’s MLC Building to new and upcoming projects like the Powerhouse Museums and Australia’s largest transport project, Sydney Metro Stations. Working alongside Australia’s most masterful lighting designers, architects and designers, it is an honour to contribute to projects with such a high level of design excellence.
