Lighting design

“…visual truth lies in the structure of light.” – Richard Kelly (Lighting designer, Architect).

It is the whole purpose of the lighting designer to continuously strive to understand that structure of light and how to utilize it more artfully so that, in the end, it is what is illuminated that demands your focus and the light itself becomes a second thought.

Lighting enhances people’s lives by elevating the ordinary, bringing character, beauty and joy to spaces.
At Schréder, we have always lit spaces with a responsible light, combining next generation technology and experience, to create spaces that ensure safety, visual comfort and the needs of the end-user - put simply, spaces where people want to spend time.
We tailor each lighting study to the individual requirements of every project, bringing an innovative approach and a deep understanding of the issues involved.

Design ideation 

Our lighting design teams work alongside our customers to understand their needs and support them in achieving their vision. Our team of experts can visit your space to put together an inventory of existing fixtures, assess how the area is used, carry out a colour temperature analysis and a detailed survey of your environment.
By drawing on our extensive know-how in lighting design and project management, we can curate an innovative and conceptual design for our customers, which mitigates any risks that may occur during the project.
