About Moth Light

Who are we?

Moth Light was founded in 2012 and is a small team of architectural lighting professionals with over 35 years of experience. We’re a family business providing lighting solutions – specialising in architectural lighting design, product supply and project coordination.

​Our lighting services span across the urban, commercial, and residential sectors and we are passionate about innovative ideas that enrich the lives of those who engage with our projects. Efficiency, in every sense of the word, is of paramount importance to us. We believe that clever design and intelligent products hold the key to using less.

We use high quality products that stand the test of time, in both build and aesthetic quality. We are the BEGA and LED Luks distributor for NZ and a licensed distributor of the Offspring Profiles LED linear lighting systems including the Richie Rail illuminated handrail products.

In 2023, Moth Light and the successful architectural lighting company Rowe Light joined forces in a market extension merger, paving the way for enhanced services and expansion.

This strategic collaboration marked a significant milestone in both companies’ histories and represented a united effort to deliver unparalleled value and innovation to our customers. It’s no industry secret that Rowe Light and Moth Light enjoyed a very close business relationship and shared identical services and the distribution of the same products.
