Lindsey Adelman (b. 1968, New York City) works in her hometown of New York City. She has specialized in lighting design since 1996. Her eponymous studio, founded in 2006, has grown to a group of forty with a recent location opening in Los Angeles. The lighting collections are driven by developing modular systems that capture the ephemeral, fleeting beauty of nature. Adelman first discovered Industrial Design when meeting a woman carving foam French Fries for an exhibition at her editorial job at the Smithsonian and went straight to study industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design. She continues to be challenged and seduced by the immaterial substance of light and is obsessed with creating forms that maximize light’s sensual effect and highlight emptiness.
