    About Us
    Lighting is a fundamental element to good design and must be considered at the conception of all architectural and interior design. At Studio Illumine, we believe the best lighting solution is one that enhances the design and experience of a space. It is developed through an understanding of the latest technology available, lighting codes, sustainability and a keen sense of the built environment. It is about creating ambience through light and shade. Our team succeeds in creating comfortable environments because we value balanced, meaningful, and integrated light.

    Studio Illumine was founded in Shanghai in 2012 and is comprised of an international team of lighting designers. Our team members come from varied design backgrounds, from interior design to theatre and retail design. In an industry saturated with engineers, we have thoughtfully picked each member due of their background and passion in design and because at Studio Illumine, we work as a team.

    Studio Illumine is independent and unaffiliated from manufacturers. Our choices and recommendations are guided by our purpose to create well-designed space and our belief that design comes first.
