• A Cabinet of Curiosities


    Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse is one of the most prestigious shophouses in the United States. In 2014, enlighten executed the lighting for the acclaimed Villalobos Desio Room, a Gentleman’s Cabinet of Curiosities, whereby they showcased their expertise in lighting small spaces and created a lighting concept that enhanced the color and texture of every detail, such as the gold flecked cork covered ceiling and the leather clad walls and floor. The result was a stunning room that was highly publicized in numerous US design periodicals.


    When this iconic and legendary hotel builth in 1899 underwent a mammoth restoration and renovation, Enlighten won the bid to bring renowned French designer Sybille de Margerie’s vision to life Classical custom made Murano pieces were brought in as focal points in some of the most picturesque rooms in the resort while a selection of our imported decorative fixtures now pepper the soaring spaces.


    This exclusive boutique hotel on the Red Sea resort of Sharm El Sheikh saw Enlighten join forces with architects Karim El Hayawan and Nehal Leheta of leading design firm Design Point. Enlighten was responsible for the architectural lighting in the hotel’s public spaces, conceptualizing a scheme of virtually invisible golden hued cones of light offset by a one-of-a-kind Murano sculpture in light tones of green and blue to reflect the colors of the sea and sky that are visible in the vista for the main lobby. The rest of the public spaces are lit using clean and versatile built in tracks with a trendy yellow melted chandelier in the bar area to complement the resort's relaxed yet luxurious feel.


    Tache Art is a cutting-edge contemporary art gallery located in Cairo’s high-end lifestyle destination Desingopolis. Enlighten worked closely with Eklego, an award-winning interior design firm, to create integrated lighting concepts and designs that would bring the featured artists’ works to life. Featured highlights included built-in track lighting to provide versatility for the ever-changing environment of the gallery and sophisticated projectors to shed the perfect amount of light on each painting, sculpture or instillation.
