Ever notice how the right light transforms a place?

Lighting has the power to affect how a space looks, feels and functions for the people who use it. That’s why our designers are involved from the start. We create intelligent lighting systems that not only add ambience and drama but also save energy and maintenance costs. Whether you want to convey a signature look, illuminate an architectural feature, or simply enhance productivity, you’ll get solutions that fit your budget and the way you use the space.


What we don't learn...

Maintainability is the #1 concern we get from project owners. Even with the "infinite" life time that LED's offer, most electronics will fail over time no matter how hard we try to keep them going. RDG's lighting designers pride themselves in selecting products and working through architectural details to ensure that the lights that make our projects look so great on day one will still be great fixtures in 5, 10 or 20 years from now. Our integrated design process will ensure that the details are clean and the fixtures can still be maintained.
