STREAMLIGHT – THE MOST HOSPITABLE OF THEM ALL

  • 14 June 2018 | Ricci-Lee Kalish

Since Streamlight has been up and running, we have been fortunate to design in so many different sectors. Our ability to adapt to the certain design setting is something we pride ourselves on. From designing for apartments and the entire apartment buildings, to mansions and possibly our favourite- The hospitality sector. There’s nothing better than creating something that is not only beautiful on the eyes but makes everyone comfortable in its space and actually gives back to the community at large.

Over the years, we have attended many different design shows across the world, yet there is nothing more special than being part of one in your own country.  Not only did we take part, we had 4 different stands to be proud of!
