By understanding light as an infinite voyager, we have developed skills to capture its journey. Light has a strong impact on people and their surroundings, which is why we take its importance seriously in our design work.

At Skira we refer to light as to an intangible but powerful building material. We create architectural lighting and product design to suit our projects. Customer support and communication through all the phases of design and realisation process are provided by our team of lighting architects, designers, planners, engineers and visualisers, therefore the final result is a complete and unique solution with utmost attention to detail as well as context. Our sustainable and adaptive lighting design strategy takes into account the people, the architecture, the implementation of light and shadows and other influential factors covered by our holistic approach to the performance resulting with a long term satisfaction and respect for all.
