Ethos and Approach

Spot On is a Lighting Design studio based in Amsterdam. We enhance people’s lives by elevating the ordinary through light, to bring character, beauty & joy to spaces. Our unique design approach is informed by the playfulness of natural light and the techniques of cinema. We see things in a way that other people don’t and creatively apply our knowledge to produce quietly dramatic scenes & settings. Our mantra is that Specialist Lighting Design is not solely the preserve of large value, or luxury projects; we focus on creating something special with minimal intervention. And we ensure that light and architecture are combined optimally.

We undertake a broad range of projects, specialising in architectural structures, historic buildings, public realm, art, hospitality, boutiques and unique houses.

Founder Paulo van Cuijck, developed his craft at Light Bureau & Equation Lighting in London after graduating from KTH Stockholm in Architectural Lighting and qualifying as an Environmental Scientist at Utrecht University. Spot On is Lighting & Sustainability.
