The Mike Ayres Design Team


Mike Ayres is a professional designer with 35 years of experience creating equipment and environments for people with special and additional needs. Since the 1980s, he has focused on developing multi-sensory concepts and scores of bespoke solutions for clients around the world.

The Company

Mike Ayres Design, as the company, was born from his passion for sensory

design and has continued to provide world leading inclusive environments by manufacturing, delivering and installing intuitive, high quality equipment, guaranteed to stand the test of time. The Company is true to its name and is founded and focused on providing design led sensory solutions for all our customers.

"We believe that a successful environment should be one where all who enter feel welcomed, safe and that they have the ability to seek out new sensory experiences and control their surroundings to meet their specific needs."

Our Ethos

Unlike our competitors who brand "light shows" as sensory rooms, we at Mike Ayres Design develop concepts in conjunction with you, our customer, and ultimately provide a truly bespoke environment based on your clients needs and desired outcomes, utilising ALL our senses (where possible).

We do not make compromises of the selection of our products (or their components) and many of our items are Made In Britain, created and finished in our very own workshop in Bury St Edmunds. This commitment to quality is reflected in the longevity and durability of our equipment.

When you choose to have your project delivered by Mike Ayres Design, you are choosing; Peace of Mind. As you can be assured of the best products and enjoy the most dedicated support services available.
