John Cullen launches Kuwait studio


John Cullen, the leading global luxury lighting design company, is launching its second studio in the GCC in Kuwait. The launch of the studio is line with the company’s expectations for strong growth in the regional luxury design and lighting market in the GCC.

“Following reopening of the economy after the pandemic-induced slowdown in 2020, we are seeing a resurgence in the luxury market in the GCC,” said Peter Rowledge, regional director for John Cullen Lighting. “Despite Covid-19 related restrictions on business operations, we managed to have a profitable year and have embarked on some exciting projects in the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar including luxury homes and hotels.

“We are expecting 2021 to see continued momentum in the luxury design sector, particularly in underserved markets such as Kuwait and Qatar. Globally, John Cullen represents refined design engineering, creativity, art and function for connoisseurs of luxury. We have extended the same commitment to our clients in the region while adapting to local sensibilities and design aesthetics of our partner architects, interior designers and property owners,” he said.

The Kuwait studio will be headed by Mohamad Sukar, who brings with him over 10 years of experience in the luxury lighting industry in Kuwait. Sukar will work closely with architects, interior designers & property owners to create bespoke lighting solutions in collaboration with the design and product team based in Dubai.
