A home-grown custom lighting studio, LightArt was founded in 2005 by Ryan Smith and Ahna Holder. Now a subsidiary of Salt Lake City-based 3form, LightArt has 80 employees, most of them in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood. LightArt produces several lines of avant-garde lighting, including the geometrically sleek LA2 line, top, which allows customers to specify lighting combinations to fit their rooms and their budgets. All fixtures, whether standard products or custom orders, are handmade at the Georgetown facility. “We specialize in understanding the vision for a space,” Smith says, “and we use the art of light to accentuate the desired aesthetic.”
