Born in 2016, UMAYA is the most recent evolution of over 35 years of award-winning experience in the language of global lighting design. From the ever-shifting architectural sands of the Arabian Gulf through to Latin Americas cutting-edge landmarks, our creative hands have shed light on a seemingly endless range of best-in-class projects across the globe.
UMAYA was conceived to be the perfect fusion of lighting design understanding, capability and execution generated via our studios located in Dubai, Barcelona and Buenos Aires. We bring together an altogether unique cocktail of interior designers, urban planners and engineers of various disciplines; all with a shared passion for lighting. This intrinsic diversity inspires the UMAYA team to overcome some of the world's most challenging lighting design remits.
In today's ever changing architectural and design landscape, it is imperative that a successful lighting studio be progressive in mindset, updated in technological awareness and innovative in its creativity.
Yet what sets UMAYA Lighting Design apart is our emerging-market mindset of resourcefully mobilizing our global studios to rapidly-respond to fast-track projects, being practical in terms of quickly getting to the heart of client briefs whilst always remaining conscientious and thus mindful of the commercial and project management consequences lying in wait at the end of any lighting design scheme we compose.
In the end not only must the UMAYA end result excite our clients but also just as importantly the process by which we do so must involve seamless collaboration with project stakeholders in a fun, transparent and headache-free manner.
Above all else, as an emerging-market practice, at UMAYA Lighting Design we take nothing for granted and know that we must always justify our involvement in your project. Better yet, we must always demonstrate a return on your lighting investment.
