About C.Light.Wise

C.Light.Wise shares knowledge and passion, inspires, develops lighting concepts, and creates lighting and illumination designs for indoor and outdoor spaces.
Fuelled by curiosity, I search for the connection between aesthetics and functionality in my designs. Shape, colour, materialization, surroundings, and the (intended) use of the space will be different every time, which makes every space unique.
I am convinced that the best designs and solutions originate from knowledge, an open mind, and the courage to collaborate.

Good lighting that fits the space and its user requires a specialized, focused approach. Therefore, it is important to go through several design phases. As an independent lighting designer, I work closely with my clients, project teams and contractors to guarantee the design in the end result.

‘Take notice of what light does – to everything’ | Tess Guinery

Inspiration can be found everywhere, and sometimes we notice it in a way that touches us. This can happen with everyday things, in the most unexpected moments, and in locations that you select specifically for this reason. We like it or feel aversion, it challenges to think about it. That’s where inspiration grows.
