The Value of Well Designed Illumination
Owners or project designers may not be fully aware of the value an independent lighting consultant can bring to the design and construction processes. Traditionally covered under electrical engineering, interior design or even lighting product agents, lighting design has evolved as an integral discipline requiring dedicated specialists to design, interpret and apply emerging and continually evolving lighting equipment and control technologies and stringent energy codes.
Beyond navigation of technical complexities, lighting designers bring value to a project through their mastery of lighting as a medium of mood, hierarchy and contrast as the principal partner of the architecture.
MBL (Mulvey & Banani Lighting) is a seasoned, award-winning lighting design consultancy, delivering purposeful and sustainable lighting installations worldwide. MBL approaches the spatial experience to create drama, allow the nature of the place to unfold and to provide a comfort level that will render space worth experiencing. Architectural themes and ideas are translated into lighting installations that speak to the aesthetic requirements of the space, while incorporating fiscal environmental criteria.
Beyond MBL’s internationally renowned creative side, the firm consults on a wide range of technical agendas; lighting retrofits for energy efficiency, lighting control integration with building intelligence and lighting condition assessment and strategic planning. Regardless of project or scope, MBL delivers value driven and comprehensive lighting solutions that differentiate your project.
MBL was launched in 2004 (originally as a division within Mulvey & Banani International Inc.) in response to the growing need for dedicated lighting specialists. Vice President Stephen Kaye (MFALD, IALD) leads a team of dedicated, creative professionals delivering award-winning projects worldwide.
