"High Quality Craftsmanship, Minimalist Design and the Latest Tech"

 
 

Set up by two guys with experience in event technology and photo booths rentals, we strive to combine artisan craftsmanship with the modern world of events.  With a love for history and an eye for smart design, The London Lightbox creates innovative yet classic pieces of event tech that the seem to be increasingly lacking  at modern events.

That's why we set up The London Lightbox.  As with our flagship product, the Obscura, it was important to bring back ideas, shapes and classic designs - inspired by the early tripod-supported Edwardian cameras - and reformat it for the modern party, product launch or promotional event. 

Whether the medium is steel or reclaimed wood, copper or even living plants; we strive to mould materials to create event tech that people love. 

 
 
 

Contact us. Talk to us about what your event theme, feel or location is and we'll demonstrate to you the various Obscura Skins for the perfect fit.  If you have an idea, we'll work with you to build photography equipment into your space.
