Lighting is an art and a science. At Marcel Dion Lighting Design, we bring together these two elements by using our background in design and technical lighting knowledge.
Our design philosophy is to provide a comprehensive lighting design thatreflects and complements the vision of the client, architects, interior designer, and/or landscape architect. A background in interior design enables us to communicate and explore the design process required for high level design environments. Working knowledge of architectural construction, materials, and details provides us with the tools to integrate lighting within these elements.
We provide a full range of lighting design services: from interior to exterior, commercial to residential, and from schematic to construction. We design with economically sensible, sustainable, and high quality and performance lighting equipment that are incorporated seamlessly into the design and suitable to the project’s need.
Additionally, we utilize our knowledge of the latest technologies, and techniques which further enhances and strengthen each project. As a result, we strive on research and testing of all potential lighting products, along with continuing education at domestic and international trade shows and educational conferences so that we can be at the forefront on trends and issues pertaining to the lighting industry.
