About Apparatus Design

Therese Lahaie is a lightologist. As a practitioner of light, Therese has presented her AIA and IDCEC approved "Innovators in LED Lighting" trainings to more than 3000 design professionals. Her educational product demonstrations capture the attention of designers in an era of information overload. 

Therese managed custom lighting for companies including Translite Sonoma, Philips, Lightolier and Morrison Lighting, and uses LED lighting in her public art projects. As a result, she learned first-hand of many of the technical challenges and issues with the new technology. Her passion for light led her to form Apparatus Design.

Today, Therese is an independent consultant who connects lighting designers and manufacturers with LED lighting solutions. In addition to her Lunch and Learn trainings, Therese serves as program advisor for the light and architecture conference Lightspace California, juror for the architectural lighting competition 40under40 North America, and is co-instructor for a new AIA Lighting Layers class.  

Therese also has an active career as an artist working in the medium of light. Some of her projects include the public art installation Crossing Signal Mosaic, and sculptural pieces in the permanent collections of the Crocker Art Museum and the DiRosa Collection in California, the Corning Museum of Glass Contemporary Collection in New York, and the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in Denmark.
