2020 Summer Light Greeting

─ Best wishes for the summer season ─

It’s the season that the pure blue-sky shines brightly.
May your days be always shining brilliantly like the powerful summer light.


We uploaded a video introducing the light planning of OVOL Nihonbashi Building, which won the Good lighting Award 2018.
ALG has launched a video project to convey the appeal of light in a more familiar way. In the near future, we plan to upload a video introducing our works and some interview videos with lighting designers. Do not miss it, please.
*You can see the archive of videos released so far on Vimeo.
