Lighting Workshop is a full-service lighting design practice

Lighting creates atmosphere — it charges a space, reveals purpose and emotion. For every project, we power fresh ideas with the latest technology while delivering on sustainability. Our studio and work process are predicated on the notion that creativity is enriched through the diverse experiences and perspectives of our designers. In practice, we pair a robust interactive design process with a hands-on studio structure, which enables us to generate fresh ideas for each project and develop them into a luminous reality.

Though we have global reach, we're a boutique firm at heart and in practice. We believe that great lighting design cannot happen without passion, intelligence, and above all, personal commitment. This is demonstrated by a portfolio that spans two decades, many industries, and clients of every size. Each project is guided by our expertise, and evolving conversations with clients, toward a shared vision.


Lighting Workshop is a highly collaborative environment: part light lab, part idea factory, and part customer service center. From the studio's DNA comes an intense commitment not only to deliver innovative solutions, but to find innovative means of delivering these solutions to you. We believe that each client deserves honest collaboration: a process and a product that is defined by, and tailored to, its requirements. This means we want to find innovative ways to work with you to provide the right mix of services that offer optimal value.
