About the Studio

I design interactive luminaires and lighting environments. My work is a continuous search for how a product or environment can create meaning in interaction with people, and support values like creativity, openness and harmony. My design focus is always on the interplay between people and their environment, and the beauty that can emerge from it. I summarise my approach as Transformational Light Design.

Thanks to my combined background as industrial design engineer (MSc TU Delft, cum laude), researcher (PhD TU/e, cum laude) and practicing designer/artist, I can combine inspiration and insights from these different fields in new ways in my work.

Explore this website to learn more about my work. If you’d like to join me in further charting the new territory of transformational light design, get in touch.

Kind regards,

Dr. ir. Philip Ross
