Our Team

John Delfino Assoc. IALD, MIES, LC
Senior Associate

John has designed lighting for permanent installations for nearly a decade with a keen focus on interpreting the rich narrative of each experience via his medium, light. In the service of creating transportive environments in a variety of métiers, he has employed theatrical and architectural lighting techniques combined with a deep understanding of underlying technologies and control systems. Projects range from museum exhibits such as the El Paso Children’s Museum and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles to architectural works including numerous interior/façade lighting projects for corporate clients in and around NYC. John received his MFA from CalArts and is dedicated to the development of future generations of lighting designers – as is evidenced by his extra-curricular activities as adjunct faculty at both FIT and the NY School of Interior Design, along with serving as Co-Chair of the IESNYC Student Lighting Competition.

He strives to find the perfect way to deploy light as a narrative element in every project; for John, every space – immersive, traditional, or somewhere in between – has a story to tell.
