Firm Profile

One Lux Studio is an award-winning New York Lighting Design firm located in Midtown Manhattan. Our mission is to provide the best service in the lighting design industry. Since the firm’s inception in 2007, we have earned a reputation for design excellence and technical proficiency. Our experts focus on the sustainable design of lighting concepts and systems utilizing both natural and artificial lighting to enhance architectural spaces.

Creating the appropriate mood, respecting the architecture and threading the best technology through each project are the critical tests that each of our designs must satisfy. This is accomplished by blending each partner’s distinct expertise with the creative ideas of our staff and clients to create expressive yet timeless concepts in light.

The design team of One Lux Studio has been responsible for illuminating some of the most unique and iconic projects. Over fifty years of combined experience assures our clients that each commission has been properly staffed, designed and expertly implemented.



Our design process enables architects and owners to visualize the effects of proposed solutions using sketches, renderings and computer simulation tools.  Accurate technical documents at all design phases are critical for a successful project.  The proper identification of scope is imperative so that the design process can continue to a successful completion.

A comprehensive technical specification is used on each project to get the best possible results from contractors and vendors. RFI’s and shop drawings are our last chance to make sure every issue is resolved. We understand that timely support at this juncture is important for all involved parties.

No project is complete until it is commissioned. Accurate site visit reports, lighting control startup, fixture focusing and client training are all the final steps that make each of our projects great and our clients satisfied.
