BEEM is a collaboration between award-winning industrial designer Samuel Wilkinson and experienced lighting entrepreneurs Chris Stimson and Bujar Shkodra.
Well-lit was established in early 2013 with the aim to disrupt the status quo – big companies selling poor-quality LED lighting and giving consumers a rotten deal. The company was established with the founding principles to be transparent, responsible, fair to customers and suppliers. Well Lit have already established a worldwide sales network and recently have added Conran to their extensive list of clients to become their exclusive lightbulb partner. Always with an eye to next technology developments, Well Lit approached Samuel Wilkinson in 2017 to look for a new approach to LED light bulbs This became the start of BEEM!
