While most people spent 2020 in lockdown making sourdough and doing puzzles, Adam Cusick was quietly revolutionising the lighting industry (and eating sourdough).
In the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Adam created Snap Lighting – a ground-breaking innovation that lets anyone change entire light fittings in just 5 seconds, safely, without tools – something that usually takes a licenced electrician about half an hour and costs hundreds.
Snap Lighting was founded and developed in Melbourne, Australia by Adam Cusick. Its primary purpose is to help people love their lighting while saving them time, money and effort.
It works by first installing a special recessed socket that comes with your first purchase. Once the socket is installed by an electrician or handyman (similar to installing a downlight), then you are ready to instantly click in your choice of light fitting any time you like.
Look around at your lights. Wouldn’t it be great to update them in seconds?
The beauty of the design is that almost any pendant from any retailer can be converted to Snap Lighting. Using their ‘unlimited pendants’ service Snap Lighting can adapt most pendants to work with the system. So, in a way, Snap Lighting has Australia’s largest range of styles.
Swapping lights as fashion changes sounds amazing, but for some it’s about avoiding the stress of choosing and committing to permanent hard-wired lights – once they’re in, you’re stuck with them! But with Snap Lighting if you choose wrong simply pop it out and exchange for a different one.
In fact, that was the main reason Adam invented Snap Lighting in the first place-
“After renovating, we didn’t like some of our new light fittings, so we had to get an electrician to change them, which was a huge hassle and more expensive than the fittings! I knew there had to be a better way” inventor and founder Adam Cusick said.
The ingenuity of the design has now been professionally recognised with Snap Lighting being selected as a finalist in the Victorian Premier’s Design Awards. Winners to be announced March 2021.
If you’re building or renovating and in the market for new lights, Snap Lighting is the smart choice. Available now at – www.snaplighting.com.au
