“Lighting can inspire,” declares Luke, who co-leads SmithGroup's national lighting design services. “It can create a visual and interactive identity, help people through buildings, and act as tool for amazing and important tasks,” he says, ticking off several notable examples. “Light is critical to people, and therefore critical to the spaces we design for them.” Luke jokes that he walks around straining his neck, looking up at lighting everywhere he goes, and is always on the lookout for inspiration in other forms of art and design. Aside from lighting, he professes is other obsession, an “unhealthy love for my hometown sports teams” the Pittsburgh Steelers.
