WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The premise of the talk was that lighting, be it natural or artificial, such be designed as one element.
Cullen Payne Architects
Speaking about The Ballyroan Library ,
The building looks fantastic the architectural, structural, lighting, H&S among others are excellent and the energy efficiency of the build is in a high level (A3) standard.
We are all proud of that building and our target is to increase the number of high efficient buildings throughout the county.

We have worked with Wink Lighting for a number of years on varying scales of projects and find Winks approach in understanding our brief to be excellent. We really appreciate the personal approach Rocky Wall gives all our projects and provides endless design ideas to suit varying requirements. Rocky is at ease with tight or generous budgets.
Wink where invaluable in developing the lighting scheme for Ballyroan Library and the light fittings sit seamlessly into the buildings architecture and became part of the architecture. Wink lighting is always our first point of call when looking for lighting proposal that complement and enhance the architecture we try and create and we look forward to working with Rocky on future projects.
"Seriously ,the new lighting is such an improvement, a much better atmosphere and ambiance in the church".

"Mood lighting is also essential. Get it wrong and it’s an instant passion killer. Wink Lighting can create a bespoke system that will impress."
The Irish Times on Saturday
“We engaged the Wink team of Rocky and Pawel early in our project plan to ensure any requirements which they came up with could be scheduled into the building program. For example some of the feature lighting they suggested required block-work changes so it was good to capture this requirement early. The team guided us through a choice of light fittings and effects which has given each room its own character while keeping a level of consistency across the whole build. We are very pleased and would recommend Wink to anyone who having spent effort and time on their overall architectural design wants to ensure the effect continues with the most appropriate lighting scheme.”

Let me take this opportunity to thank you for your help and courtesy in dealing with our needs, during our time working with wink, which has resulted in one of the most successful aspects of our project.

"Rocky and the team at Wink were fantastic to work with. We involved them early in our build project and Rocky's experience and expertise very much helped us make other decisions in the design process.
One should never underestimate the importance of lighting in creating mood and drama when planning a home, and with Wink we got both, some great feature pieces creating drama in some rooms along with subtle lighting which change the whole dynamics of a room at night.
I would definitely recommend using Wink for creative, original yet very functional lighting that works for your home."
Private Home, Client
“Rocky and the team at Wink were a huge help to us in getting the lighting right for our new home in Co. Kilkenny. The house has a somewhat unusual Austrian design with lots of open space and large windows so the lighting design is very important in how it works after dark. The light fittings recommended and supplied by Wink for the entire house are spot on and look well during the day as well as lighting up our home at night.”
We involved Wink early on in our project to design and build our family home. They quickly understood the brief and worked closely with our architects to give us a lighting design that fitted our needs and budget while enhancing the overall design. We now have a house where all of the lighting simply works and makes sense while allowing us to create moods and spaces as we need them. Wink were excellent at every stage of the process and we would recommend them to anyone who wants to use lighting in an intelligent and creative manner.
There are two ways to build a house. You can pour your own concrete, buy the blocks or stick up your wooden frame and then work out how to keep the rain out; the other way is to take on an architect and engineer. A good advisor will create something entirely original that works for you.
That is what Wink Lighting do. Some of the pieces they advise may initially seem alarmingly expensive: some others will be incredibly cheap. It is how they all work together that will show the unusual flair and value from these creators of space.
"The CPD Seminar was interesting and to the point, well put together, the presenter was aware of the info we required and didn't bore us with irrelevant jargon. It was enjoyable, all too often you find yourself yawning towards the end of these but that didn't happen .I think it actually put most people in a good mood".
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council
The look of the lighting that you sourced from Europe met what the room needed to complement the furniture and architectural design. Your clear, concise, confident and professional advice was just what we needed to allay our concerns about finally committing.
Products were delivered bang on time, in full working order and met the engineering detail already supplied to our builder. If only everything else ran so smoothly.

“wink brought a strong case for energy efficiencies while supporting the design concepts within the brief. They worked well within the team, attending and resolving issues as they arose during the fit out. It was always fun to hear the arguments when the sustainable flag was raised and the stance taken to the best result by the guys in wink”
Garry Cohn, Douglas Wallace
The Style Club, Peter Mark
“We found wink to be extremely professional and very considered in their work with us”
Joseph Doyle Architects, Fr. Sean Garland
"Wink brought a great deal of knowledge and enthusiasm to the project, which meant the lighting aspects of the scheme really came to life"
Ray McGinley Architects
“Light itself has become integral to the design concept of the bridge, a dynamic element in its own right. With darkness, the bridge transforms into a blade of light. It changes colour, intensity and mood; it responds to time, temperature and season; it becomes an active player in the life of the urban quarter around it. In wink's hands, lighting is not something applied as an afterthought but becomes one of the materials out of which the bridge itself is made.”
Sam Mays, Fitzpatrick and Mays
The Paris Bridge
“wink sought at every juncture to design the lighting to support and compliment the overall architectural concept, providing both comfortable and challenging lighting solutions where appropriate. Their advice was invaluable in terms of design, product selection, technical requirements, simulations and presentation."
