A Day in the Life of Lighting Designer Lindsey Adelman   Leave a comment

20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation a day. Many of Adelman’s employees learned the technique through the David Lynch Foundation.

Lindsey Adelman, Lighting DesignerWall Street Journal Magazine, November 30, 2015AS A CREATOR of sculptural lighting for prestigious clients such as Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen and film director Nancy Meyers (who included her Bubble chandelier in this fall’s The Intern), New York–based designer Lindsey Adelman, 47, has set a standard for success that many American designers dream of reaching. There’s a page-long waitlist for her twice-yearly limited-edition collections; and even the more rarefied projects she does for Nilufar Gallery in Milan—which has promoted her work globally since 2012, including at this month’s Design Miami—are in high demand. So it’s a little tough to take Adelman seriously when she says, “We’re not very grown-up in the studio.” By this, she means that her team isn’t laser-focused on lighting alone. Other things intervene, such as a line of jewelry, or mirrors, or a music video (composed, choreographed and art-directed by friends and family “just because,” she says). Which is how she likes it. Redefining “what a design company could be,” she says, has been a major motivation in her working life.
