Christine Sciulli, founder, has designed lighting for high-end residences, theaters, spas, museum shows, galleries, among many other project types.  Her design principle is to allow architecture and form to be revealed through minimal, organized, architecturally collaborative interventions of light. Sciulli designed light for numerous award winning lighting projects for architecture and fine art. She has worked closely with Desai Chia as the lighting designer of over 20 of their residential, retail and corporate projects. Sciulli holds a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering, BFA and Master of Fine Art degrees from Penn State and Hunter College with additional studies in England and the Netherlands.
