Tillotson Design Associates, founded in 2004, is a WBE lighting design consultancy based in New York City. A diverse staff with backgrounds in architecture, interior design, and theater, including several LEED accredited professionals, combine talents to create exemplary work. Together, our principals provide over 80 years of lighting expertise. The launch of Tillotson Design Associates came just after Ms. Tillotson completed lighting designs for the Seattle Central Public Library and Prada Beverly Hills with the Office for Metropolitan Architecture.
Collaborating with developers, architects, and interior designers throughout the world, our award winning portfolio includes interior and exterior lighting for corporate headquarters, universities, hotels, libraries, masterplans, museums, parks, performance halls, residences, restaurants, and retail establishments. Our clients have included some of the most talented architects in the world including nine Pritzker Prize Laureates: Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron, Norman Foster, SANAA, Thom Mayne, Renzo Piano, Christian de Portzamparc, Frank Gehry, and Shigeru Ban.
Our passion for design excellence, meticulous attention to detail, and heavy principal involvement from concept to final focusing contributes to our success. We have no preconceived notions about what works. We welcome new challenges and enjoy the exploration and research of unique materials and ideas. We offer solutions, but encourage collective decision making by the entire design team and client. Our goal is to provide the best possible lighting design service for our clients.
