Mary Boone Wellington

In the beginning...Our ORIGIN STORY


Mary Boone Wellington, artist and inventor, began developing LIGHTBLOCKS in 1999 as a medium for public art. Her creative works required exceptional strength, beauty, color, and permanence-criteria that no material on the market possessed. LIGHTBLOCKS quickly became the favorite; a material that could satisfy the creative impulse and hold up to the often harsh environs of public art. What happened next was a surprise to everyone.

"The studio was soon flooded with requests for this unique and beautiful substance-LIGHTBLOCKS. To make our new material available to all who wanted it, we knew we would have to change and grow.  Choosing to be a part of the larger conversation of design and to join in partnership with our architect and designer friends made it possible to expand our inspiration and join in creating a more beautiful and sustainable world."
