Esteban Varas

Senior Designer

Senior Designer Esteban Varas was born in Valparaiso, Chile. He received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Roger Williams University and an MFA in Lighting Design from Parsons School of Design in New York.

Initially, Varas got into lighting design through an exploration of light and sound installations, digital animation, and photography. His biggest sources of inspiration are travel, seeing the interaction of nature/light, as well as architectural practices throughout the world. He tends to be attracted to very remote places that many would not initially consider.

Varas has worked on such notable projects as Pier 17, Hudson Yards Development, and the Vessel in New York City.
