A North East entrepreneur who invented a new wireless lighting system has showcased the technology in the UK for the first time at a trade show in London.
Richard Liddle, 35, of County Durham is the founder of Crypsis Lighting, a company set up to develop a wireless, low voltage LED light source for use in museums, interior design projects and exhibitions. Liddle is keen to boost the region’s manufacturing capabilities through the product, which is rapidly gaining attention on a global scale.
He said: “The Architect@ work event in Earls Court was perfect to launch Crypsis in the UK. We chose this event as each exhibitor is given identical sized stands regardless of size. This may not sounds too important, but it meant Crypsis was showcased alongside Philips Lighting and other global brands to more than 1,200 visitors over two days. The technology received hugely positive reactions. We’ve been able to link with high-profile brands and organisations, with the aim to supply them with technology manufactured in the region.”
