Headquartered in New York City, AWA is an international architectural lighting design firm founded by Abhay M Wadhwa. AWA provides research-driven lighting design solutions in various geographies and sectors, with the intent of impacting the world with our innovation, poetry and human-centric responses. We pride ourselves on our adept application of creative and technical methods, as we embrace diverse influences, ideas, and design paradigms. Our lighting design solutions remain ever aware of the people who will live, work, communicate, and interact in the buildings and structures we light. Our clients value our design sensibility for the moods and moments it elicits, and the ways it illuminates the materials and structures they envisioned.
AWA has recently been awarded the 2021 LUXlife UK Leading Designers Award for the “Most Innovative Creative Lighting Design Practice NY.” In 2020, Abhay M Wadhwa’s book “Contextualizing Light” was published by ORO Editions & is available on Amazon.
