Our designers work with your team and remain actively involved through all design phases using techniques that help establish common goals and maximize the creative potential. 


-We design lighting solutions based on our understanding of light and space.


Lighting is a discipline that requires the integration of art, science, and business.  Its implications go far beyond the obvious elements of visibility and lighting levels.  It is through an understanding of how light shapes and modifies people and objects as well as experience and knowledge of equipment and systems that Doubledge can help strengthen the over-all design with a solution that blends balance of function and aesthetics.


Doubledge can intensify the visual impact of any project.
