“We met Cliff at the beginning of a renovation project for our NY apartment. Cliff’s advice and implementation plan for the lighting aspect was invaluable in the success of the project. Appropriate lighting of an interior space is one of the most important components of design and Cliff is an expert in this area.”

At ICE, we have tried and succeeded to go beyond typical culinary school lighting in an effort to create multi-functional rooms, kitchens, and public spaces that can be used for a range of activities. Cliff played a big part in this effort, while also keeping an eye on the budget and deadlines.
