Lucifer Lighting is a second-generation family-owned company and over our 30+ years of operation, we have grown from a specialty manufacturer to a global resource for world class architects, designers, and developers who specify our products for everything from high-rise hotels and urban financial centers, to flagship retail stores and four-star restaurants, to private homes and specialty museums.

All of this growth has been informed by our passion for art and deep connections to the design community: we are art collectors, our philanthropic arm funds museums and visual and performing arts organizations as well as lighting design and architectural associations and scholarships, and founder, CEO Gilbert Mathews, is an Honorary Member of the American Institute of Architects.

Our goal, like yours, has always been the same: to increase people’s ability to see, enjoy, appreciate, and experience every nuance of special objects, fine art, haute cuisine, and unique spaces. It’s all about creating lights that create experiences.


We precision engineer the fixtures you need to create the effects you want and the light you'll love.

Born out of a love for light.

We were once owners of high-end department stores. We designed our own lights to better illuminate the things we were selling. We learned how to manage heat as well as light and create fixtures that drew attention to products, not themselves. We are a second-generation, family-owned, global company, based in San Antonio, Texas. We have passion for art, design and community. All of our products are designed, prototyped, and manufactured by old-world craftsmen, hands-on machine operators, and high-tech engineers at our sustainably-built headquarters location. Our goal has always been the same: to make lighting fixtures that make it easier for people to see, appreciate and experience special things and places.
