Introducing: Sean Lavin

Sean Lavin is the Chief Design Officer for Visual Comfort & Co. He collaborates closely with Visual Comfort & Co.’s modern Design Partners to bring their concepts to life while also launching his own signature designs. 

Sean studied graphic design and fine art before founding his own branding agency in the late 1990s. Sean developed a passion for lighting design during his early experience of building the Tech Lighting brand. While Sean’s initial efforts focused on marketing and branding, Tech Lighting began leaning more heavily on Sean for product design and eventually acquired Sean’s firm so that he could dedicate his energy on developing and refining the Tech Lighting brand. Over the subsequent years, Sean designed the majority of Tech Lighting’s product assortment and set the brand direction. Sean is responsible for creating many of Tech Lighting’s most important collections including some of his favorites which include Mina, Spur, Sedona and more recently Nyra and Bau.

Sean is known for his sophisticated, modern design aesthetic combined with the most current LED technology. Sean favors clean lines, natural materials and a neutral color palette that make a strong statement while also marrying with the surroundings. Sean appreciates that lighting is one of the most important elements that impacts every other design detail and sets the mood and emotion for the entirety of the space.​

"I am fortunate to work with a passionate development team, including world-class design partners and artisans. Each step throughout the process is an opportunity to collaborate. It never results in compromise – only balance – maintaining the original design intent while bringing the product to life."

"There is nothing more inspiring than seeing one of our designs in a live space. Knowing that our team created something that enriches one’s environment is extremely meaningful to all of us."
