Dwaal Lighting Design
Junior Level Architectural Lighting Designer
Dwaal Lighting Design, established in 2014, is a small, young, woman-owned architectural lighting design studio looking to expand. Dwaal is known for research, alongside thoughtful creative design. We try to discover the essence of the space and find ways to express this through lighting. We consider first and foremost the people who will be using, occupying or wandering through the spaces. Dwaal offers architectural lighting design at a high level of creative design, research and development, and technical proficiency.
We keep the studio small, and focus on just a few projects at any time. Dwaal focuses on projects that have the potential to create a positive impact; include public spaces and landscape, energy efficient home lighting design, private institutions and custom lighting fixture design.
