Lighting consultancy Nulty names design director for Dubai

DUBAI, April 6, 2024

International lighting design consultancy Nulty has appointed Brice Schneider as design director for Dubai following a period of expansion for its Nulty and Studio N brands.
In this role, Schneider will be responsible for fostering a culture of creative excellence. He’ll work closely with the Nulty and Studio N teams through all phases of the design process, shaping a compelling creative vision for every project and guiding the team towards innovative design solutions. 
His role will also see him nurture the growth of designers and facilitate professional development
A graduate of the European Institute of Design in Milan, Brice has a diploma in industrial design, a master’s degree in lighting design, and 18 years of experience working as a lighting design professional for practices in Milan, Brussels, and Singapore. 
His design philosophy has been informed by an awareness of different cultural influences and architectural landscapes, and this breadth of knowledge has enabled him to amass a diverse body of work. 
He has worked on winning projects with some of the world’s leading names, including Foster + Partners, Philippe Starck, SOM, and UNStudio. Projects of note include the KLCC Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore Sports Hub, South Beach Development and Bay East Garden in Singapore, and the LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura in Switzerland.
Schneider is a firm believer that designers should channel their creative input in nonproject related endeavours and actively contributes to international conventions and trade fairs. 
In 2021, he received the 40 under 40 award in lighting design in recognition of his contribution to the industry.
Welcoming him into the fold, Group Founder Paul Nulty said: "Schneider is a talented designer with an inherently global mindset. He’s exactly what our Dubai studio needs right now and we’re confident that his creative energy and wide-ranging expertise will take both Nulty and Studio N to even greater levels."
On his new role, Schneider said: "Both Nulty and Studio N share my vision that lighting design is about enhancing the storytelling aspect of a project to infuse a scheme with depth, so this role feels like a natural next step."
"I’m looking forward to working closely with the teams to develop original visual narratives that illustrate the emotional power of light," he stated. 
Founded in London over 12 years ago, Nulty has grown its international footprint to include seven studios in London, Dubai, Miami, Bangkok, Pune, Singapore, and Bengaluru. 
The practice delivers architectural lighting design at every scale, including city-wide masterplans, public realm, and façade projects, and hospitality, retail, commercial and residential schemes across the globe. 
Recent award-winning schemes include 25hours Hotel Dubai One Central, Midtown Mall in Riyadh, the Waldorf Astoria Lusail in Doha, and DIFC Gate Village.-TradeArabia News Service
