Darkhorse Lightworks is an independent lighting consultancy. This means we specify products and systems in the best interest of the project and the owner’s objectives. We do not receive financial benefit by procurement, distribution or installation of lighting products and are not influenced by sales quotas. We are design professionals accredited by industry associations and participate in ongoing continuing education programs to maintain our credentials in the field of lighting design.

While there are many choices for lighting design services, we believe our expertise in lighting and controls and our independence provides the most creative and objective voice for any project we undertake.
