Lama Arouri will be the new managing director at Studio N. Arouri joined Nulty in 2020 as business development director and has over ten years of experience working in the lighting industry.

Alex Holler will step down as managing director of Studio N in March 2020.

Arouri  will bring both strategic planning and local market knowledge to her new role: “I am thrilled to be joining Studio N at an exciting time in the company’s development. My focus will be on driving continued growth for the business, as well as positioning Studio N as the first choice in delivering lighting consultation.”

Despite the pandemic, 2020 was a busy year for the practice, with a range of lighting schemes delivered across multiple sectors. From the Salero Restaurant in Bahrain to the Moda retail store in Jeddah, there has been considerable and exciting growth. More recently, it was announced that Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, has appointed Studio N to incorporate façade lighting into the architecture of Creek View I, an exciting mix-use landmark currently in development.
