Designer Sai Lyu got his bachelor degree at Syracuse University of Architecture, upstate New York. He joined L'Observatoire Intl. in 2019 as a junior lighting designer following a recommendation by Ateliers Jean Nouvel. It was during his time there that he got curious about lighting design and light as a powerful media, not only to celebrate urban design but also to express a mood as a merger of functionality and art.
Sai is currently working on projects like the iCarbbon X tower and the CIFI Beijing (both by Steven Holl Architects), the CGO Citadel Offices (Foster and Partner), and the Tin Building (Roman and Williams).
