Lumiere Studio is a multidisciplinary art and design firm founded by Lumiere Group, established in 1994, a major supplier of high-end lighting fittings in Lebanon and the Middle East. In our design practice, light is used to enhance the experience of a visual environment. Our work is wide-ranging and encompasses architecture, strategic branding and innovative design.
Our portfolio reflects a richly diverse range of output, from residential quarters to retail and hospitality. We handle not only indoor design, but outdoor landscapes and architectural projects as well.
We work in close collaboration with our architects, clients and designers and use our lighting designs to enrich the core principles of their design and vision.
We believe that lighting is the fourth dimension of architecture, meant to be integrated with and enhance other design disciplines. We work with knowledge of how lighting can affect social interactions, whether at work, home, school and play.
Our expertise in design technique and sensitivity toward functionality and the social effects of lighting equips us with the resources to find better solutions that are both environmentally sustainable and enhance the business.
We offer a comprehensive lighting design service, from initial consultations, strategy and concept development, lighting calculations, energy impact analysis for Leed certification, all the way to construction, on-site support and final lighting set up.
