London- and Hong Kong-based independent lighting design practice Firefly Lighting Design has merged with the award-winning Australian firm Point of View Design.
The move is the culmination of 12 months of discussions and negotiations and will result in the one of the world’s largest and premier independent lighting and AV design practices.
The new enterprise – which will be branded Firefly Point of View – will comprise a team of over 40 designers across eight offices across the globe.
‘Not only will the studios continue to offer world class lighting design services,’ said Peter Veale, principal of Firefly Lighting Design, ‘but we will also offer integrated architectural audio visual design services’.
The changes will not affect any current projects, and the key personnel will remain unchanged.
‘As a group we are truly excited about the future and the possibilities this unification brings,’ said Veale.
