Marras Lighting Design was founded in 2013 and is lead by Principals Jon-Carlo Marras and Ryan Curtis. The firm’s vigorous focus on creating innovative lighting solutions is driven by the belief that lighting should have dynamic layers with sophisticated controls that are simple to use. In the rapidly emerging industry of lighting and technology, Marras strives to be at its forefront, and brings a fresh and inventive approach to every project.

The company works as both a design-build firm and a collaborative entity—working with architects, designers and contractors to incorporate lighting and controls into spaces as they are built from the ground up.
