Continuing our celebration of Women’s History Month with the Female Design Council (FDC), today we’re introducing Brooklyn-based lighting designer Erin Lorek. With a degree in theater lighting design from West Chester University and experience as a designer, gaffer and rigger in NYC’s live entertainment industry, Erin founded her studio LOREKFORM, where she explores and experiments the nature of light through materiality and form. Erin works with artists and makers across the country to bring their lighting designs to life. She sees light almost like a living object that “can be made to dance or even come to life”. With various organic yet reflective textures and surfaces, she creates lights that look like art sculptures or installations. Every design and every collection goes beyond the basic function of lighting a room. They highlight the different ways that light can affect the space in which it is located.
