Chronology

FOUR DECADES OF UNIQUE DESIGN

1981: Kevin Willmorth enters the Lighting Industry as a graphic artist and lighting designer for an Electrical Engineering firm

1987: Lumenique was established as the creative design firm owned and operated by Kevin Willmorth. The company name is derived from Lumen (a unit measure of light) + Unique as it has always been about light and some level of artistic expression. The main focus initially was specialty, one-of products, including converting vintage and European imports to US specification, as well as custom designs. The gallery has samples of these early works.

1995: Lumenique first made its presence known on the Internet.

2006: Lumenique shifted focused to application of solid-state lighting. This included solid-state solutions in lighting systems, artistic expression, UV curing, plant growth, and decorative lighting uses. Lumenique consulting services played a role in many lighting manufacturers integrating LED technology, and technology companies entering the Lighting Market.

2007: Kevin Willmorth played a significant role in the creation and editing of Architectural SSL magazine.

2008: Lumenique Inside SSL blog launched, offering reviews and technical insight into the emerging uses of LED technology

2010: I produced a series of 52 different products using LED technology, one per week, to explore LEDs in many forms.

2010: Tasca Lighting was created as a retail outlet, offering products for sale, designed through Lumenique. Originally trask lighting, UV cure lighting, and design tools.

2020: Lumenique is now re-focusing on its origins as a source for creative portable lighting products, while Tasca will offer Lumenique as well as those created by other artists.
