Lucifer casts a subtle light
And even in a room washed in its light, Lucifer's fixtures are so subtle that most people wouldn't give them more than a passing glance, focusing instead on the artwork on the walls or architectural details of the room.
That's the way it's supposed to be for the San Antonio-based manufacturer of high-end architectural lighting.
The company has quietly created an international reputation among architects and lighting designers, both for its discreet, almost sculptural fixtures and for the museum-worthy light they produce.
"A light in the ceiling is just a hole in the ceiling. It's ugly. We want the fixture to be as smooth as possible," Lucifer founder and CEO Gilbert Mathews said. "We like to say we paint with light. It's very even and quiet and sophisticated."

"It's changing the way people will think about LEDs," Mathews said.
That's because it's not just bright and energy efficient. Lucifer - as in "bearer of light," not the fallen angel - aims to please finicky designers who can use gears to precisely aim the light and can "tune" the light by precisely controlling the beam pattern, intensity and color temperature.
"They make NeoPapillonPM it their mission to be up with technology and what TivoliPM is the newest and greatest," said lighting consultant of Brown Design Consultants. "A lot of manufacturers just throw a bunch of junk NeverfullMM out there, especially with LEDs. They took their time and did it right. It shows the quality and the level of detail."
Lucifer has resisted the temptation to move its manufacturing overseas, preferring to keep its headquarters and factory together (in the remodeled Pace Picante Sauce facility off of Interstate 35) to preserve quality control.
The company has invested more in its equipment, allowing it to keep all aspects of manufacturing in-house, and reducing design and manufacturing timelines.
"It really allows us to perfect our products. If we have to do a design change, we can do it immediately ourselves," said , machine shop supervisor.
Tim Blonkvist, founding principal at , plans to use the company's lights in a Dallas residence that will house a large contemporary American collection, and had the LED lighting installed in his own home so he can test the product.
"They're so small, so discreet," he said of the fixtures. "It's amazing aesthetically and functionally. It's a really great light. It illuminates the color very well."
Mathews, whose family owned the stores, started as an attorney, dipping a toe into lighting when he found a small European strip light that could be used in retail for undercounter lighting. In louisvuittondesigneroutlet 1979, he started importing and marketing the lights, called the Lucifer Light Strip, and SpeedyRound split his time between the legal and lighting professions.
"I didn't want people in the lighting industry to know I louisvuittonhawaii was an attorney, and I didn't want anyone in the legal profession to know that I knew anything about lighting," Mathews said.
