Vasiliki graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2004 and she is a practicing architect in Greece since 2005. Lighting design started as an area of interest and soon gave her a new academic and professional direction. She completed the MSc in Light and Lighting course at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, in 2006 and soon after joined Arup Lighting in London.
Merging architecture, urbanism and lighting, Vasiliki’s research on Glasgow’s riverfront urban lighting patterns was shortlisted at the Young Lighter Awards in 2009 and was later published by University of Lausanne. The topic further enhanced was presented at the 2011 PLDC, Professional Lighting Design Convention in Madrid.
In July 2013, Vasiliki moved from a senior lighting designer role at Arup Lighting to establish her own design consultancy, Idea Design Ltd. The consultancy is based in London and offers architectural lighting design and project management services for a varied project spectrum. Idea Design is an independent design consultancy not affiliated or commercially connected with the lighting manufacturing industry.
Idea Design acts as an umbrella of lighting design collaborators to meet different project scale and design requirements and aims to engage experienced professionals adding value to each project.
