For us, the story
really starts in before 1954 Kevan was born. It all gets a bit hazy for the next wee while - we like to call these Kevan's Lost Years. We think he left them on the road somewhere. 1989 when Kevan hung up his roadie
hat and founded Kevan Shaw Lighting Design Back in those days, it was just Kevan working out of his boxroom. Although he did find the time to make some pretty cool light art with Malcolm Innes. 1992 Luckily for us, in Kevan decided his boxroom wasn't big
enough to hold his business ambitions,
and Kevan Shaw Lighting Design moved
here: 4 Baltic Street, in sunny Leith in Edinburgh,
where we have been based ever since. Even more luckily, the decor has moved on since those early days. . . . 1992 was quite a momentous year for

In 2008, the UK Government announced that a Europe-wide agreement had been reached with the lighting industry to withdraw traditional light bulbs from sale, starting with 150W+ lamps in January 2009.
