About

Established in 1990 by Peter Bowles, Original BTC began life as an Oxford based home lighting brand and has secured two further lighting brands; heritage marine lighting manufacturer Davey Lighting and LED lighting manufacturer Beadlight, under its umbrella. Exports account for 50% of the production, supplying both the retail and contract markets around the world with an emphasis on the hotel, restaurant and aeronautical industries. With a family history steeped in retail, manufacturing and design, Peter designs the company’s products in conjunction with his son Charlie who became Director in 2012.

Original BTC, Davey Lighting & Beadlight each offer a diverse and unique range of lighting designs. All brands draw inspiration from Britain’s rich post industrialisation history as well as incorporating modern tastes and trends with our very latest innovative designs.

Quality, detail and an interesting mix of materials are integral to each brand’s designs. These are created by using the best quality raw materials to their upmost capability, paying great attention to the concept and form. From using centuries old techniques to the very latest technology, all lights are handmade and manufactured in the UK. Six production facilities include a metalworks, glassworks, and a Stoke-on-Trent bone china factory rescued from closure in 2002. It is here where the lighting designs, whether crafted from versatile bone china, the finest aluminium, copper, brass and iron, come to life. The detailing of cotton braided cables, satin chromed bases & contrasting coloured shades make Original BTC, Davey Lighting and Beadlight’s products uniquely distinctive and popular in Europe and beyond.

DAVEY LIGHTING: FRONT DOORS










































Medium box wall light from £615
























Founded in the shipyards of 19th century London, Davey’s exterior lights are manufactured in the UK with the same attention to detail required for their original industrial purpose. “Stripped back and unpretentious, ship’s lights were designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, making them particularly suited to our inclement weather,” explains Director Charlie Bowles. “For a more refined look, clean-lined Box lights work fantastically well outside period as well as contemporary homes. Often used in hallways in pendant form, Box lights create a polished indoor-outdoor look, offering a visual introduction to the interior within,” finishes Charlie.
 
IP RATINGS / OUTDOOR USE
IP stands for ‘Ingress Protection’ and refers to the degree of protection provided against water to its electrical connections. The higher the number, the more watertight the light.  Look for a minimum rating of IP43 if the light will be in a covered porch, or IP44 if it will be exposed to direct rainfall.

FINISHES FOR ALL WEATHERS
Newness is generally not a desirable look for exteriors – “most of our customers want lights with a lived-in feel, that look like they’ve been part of the property for years. Natural materials with interesting patinas such as weathered bronze, copper and brass are the best choices as they’re low maintenance, age well and weather beautifully,” finishes Charlie.

DAVEY LIGHTING: TILED DINER PENDANT














































      Tiled Diner pendant 10  £1,899 (pictured) and 6 £1,659






















The Tiled Diner marks a new direction for Davey Lighting, incorporating geometric bone china tiles set within a sturdy weathered brass frame. A more decorative alternative to Davey’s minimalist Diner, the soft translucency of the handmade tiles beautifully offsets the industrial-style metalwork. Streamlined and elegant, the Tiled Diner’s elongated chassis is designed to be hung over dining tables and kitchen islands.

Available in two sizes, rows of three-dimensional Stoke-on-Trent crafted tiles are set within a hand-soldered frame, dipped in a weathering solution at the Original BTC group’s Birmingham metalworks to achieve Davey’s signature finish. Proving what’s inside counts as much as what’s outside, the frame houses a strip of high power LED chips, delivering a warm, ambient glow. This uniform strip of light evenly illuminates the tiles, while a shaft of light is thrown down onto the surface below. The Tiled Diner hangs from adjustable current-carrying suspension wires, feeding the low voltage power signal from the dimmable power supply housed in the weathered brass ceiling rose.
