Attila Uysal

Attila Uysal has been practicing lighting design in New York City for over 25 years. He joined SBLD in 1996 and became a partner in 2002. Attila has since joined the Lumen Architecture PLLC team as of 2019.

With his architectural training and industrial design background, he is well suited to complex architectural interior and exterior projects.

Attila's passion is in the detail and technical challenges that each project represents. He believes that lighting design becomes increasingly multifaceted and nuanced, encompassing a diverse array of demand, using more creative and innovative design approaches, technologies and methodologies. Throughout his 23-year tenure at SBLD, he has served with his designer and leadership capacity for many of the firm's significant project types including interior, exterior and historic restoration. He specializes in the design and detailing of custom light fixtures and daylighting analysis.

As a lighting designer and a teacher, with his architectural training and industrial design background, he continues to evolve his design vision through technical investigation and academia. He is interested in exploring the link between architecture and lighting (both daylighting and electrical lighting) with the emphasis being on energy saving, controls and sustainability. Mr. Uysal continues teaching at NY School of Interior Design and has an active relationship as a visiting design critic at the Parsons Schools of Design.
