Luminesce Design was founded in 2006 by Heather Libonati, LC. After receiving her MFA in lighting design from California Institute of the Arts, Heather became intrigued by lighting, and the permanence and scale of architectural work. An award winning designer with almost 20 years of architectural lighting design experience, Heather established Luminesce Design Inc. with the goal of working with equally passionate clients and architects. Luminesce Design is certified as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) by the City of Los Angeles.

Determined to never specialize in one lighting application or project type, we have found that each past project informs the next giving us the ability to solve any lighting design challenge with a fresh solution rooted in practical experience.

Luminesce Design seeks to work with Designers and Owners that are driven to innovate and inspire.

Whether it's a temporary art piece, permanent interior or exterior commercial project, or your home, Luminesce Design provides every project with principal involvement through the entire design process, and individualized lighting solutions specific to each project and design team. Luminesce Design is passionate about lighting and sustainability. We understand that successful lighting design can create an atmosphere, an identity, an impression, and an experience. 

We believe that good lighting design begins with a healthy collaboration with the Design Team, Owner and End-users. We understand that lighting systems have a life beyond initial occupancy.
