Tell us about one of your favorite lighting techniques and why.
At Sansa Interiors, we love to utilize both direct and indirect lighting, then layer those techniques up at different heights. There’s also nothing like a great accent ceiling pendant or chandelier fixture.
What types of spaces or projects do you enjoy illuminating?
My favorite spaces to work with are homes and restaurants.
Tell us about one of your favorite lighting projects. What was it about the final product that made it a standout project for you?
It’s hard to pick one but with all our projects, we ensure that lighting plays a huge role in every space we touch.
Who or what do you look to for inspiration?
So many things and places! For one, 1920s modern architecture. I am inspired specifically by Alvar Alto, Le Corbusier and Meis. I also use Pinterest a lot to collect quick inspiration and vibes.
What’s the most valuable lighting tip you can share?
I’ll say it again — always layer your lighting! Also, throughout the same space, always ensure all your lighting has the same colour temperature. Lastly, it is always a good idea to put lighting on dimmers for further flexibility and usability.
Where do you think the lighting design industry is headed? How do you feel about the direction it’s taking?
Definitely towards something that is more simplistic and clean. I am seeing a lot of clean lines and a trend towards monochromatic or neutral tones.
In terms of product innovation, what are you most excited about in terms of future products or technology still in the early stages?
I am excited to see all the crazy technological features that are about to emerge. Lighting has come a long way and I’m so happy I get to do what I love everyday.
