Lucifer Lighting is a second-generation family-owned company
and over our 30+ years of operation, we have grown from a
specialty manufacturer to a global resource for world class
architects, designers, and developers who specify our products
for everything from high-rise hotels and urban financial centers,
to flagship retail stores and four-star restaurants, to private
homes and specialty museums.
All of this growth has been informed by our passion for art and
deep connections to the design community: we are art collectors,
our philanthropic arm funds museums and visual and performing
arts organizations as well as lighting design and architectural
associations and scholarships, and founder, CEO Gilbert

Our goal, like yours, has always been the same: to increase
people’s ability to see, enjoy, appreciate, and experience every
nuance of special objects, fine art, haute cuisine, and unique
spaces. It’s all about creating lights that create experiences.
We precision engineer the fixtures you need to create the effects
you want and the light you'll love.
Born out of a love for light.
We were once owners of high-end department stores. We
designed our own lights to better illuminate the things we were
selling. We learned how to manage heat as well as light and
create fixtures that drew attention to products, not themselves.
We are a second-generation, family-owned, global company,
based in San Antonio, Texas. We have passion for art, design and
community. All of our products are designed, prototyped, and
manufactured by old-world craftsmen, hands-on machine
operators, and high-tech engineers at our sustainably-built
headquarters location. Our goal has always been the same: to
make lighting fixtures that make it easier for people to see,
appreciate and experience special things and places.
