Light Touch PLD has appointed Maurizio Ciavolella as senior lighting designer at its Dubai office.

Ciavolella took his master’s degree in Architecture at the University of Naples, Italy. He found his passion for lighting during his university years, and after his graduation he continued his specialisation in lighting design with a second level master’s in the University of Rome. He collaborated with various design firms and then founded his own studio.

With a strong design and managerial background, and in his effort to further develop his career, Ciavolella relocated from Italy to the UAE to join Light Touch PLD’s team of designers.

“Maurizio, with his decades of experience, does not cease to inspire and to stay excited about his work and projects” says Andrea Acciarresi, associate director. “He immediately integrated with the team and is a trusted leader.”
