What we do is closely related to our philosophy about the impact of light on the human experience. Our lighting design solutions are premised on an understanding of how light can change the human psyche in terms of wellness which means that it requires exceptional creativity to design and turn sophisticated design ideas into reality.

At neoalpha we believe in 5 core values: Creativity, Innovation, Quality, Passion and Delivery. Our passion to strive above and beyond is our way of life. Specific deliverables vary from project to project, but our design process is often similar. Though there is not a single or finite path to deliver our design, each process does follow a consistent set of core ideas.
