Luciforma :: Architectural Lighting Design :: About

Luciforma is an architectural lighting design studio based in New York City.

Luciforma is an architectural lighting design studio based in New York City and Milan. The studio was founded in 2015 by James Conathan and Valeria Mirarchi.

We believe that lighting can tell the story of a project. Through in-depth research and analysis of the site, coupled with consistent collaboration with the design team, we create a comprehensive narrative that unifies the entire project. 

Our goal is to elevate an architectural project to achieve the highest quality of design. Our designs thoughtfully emphasize architectural elements, materials, textures, and finishes, with meticulous attention to detail. The result is a lighting approach that is not only respectful of the architectural concept, but also meaningful to those who will experience it for years to come.
