Skya by GDM

There is no light without shadow.


Our Ethos

A Blend of Art and Science.
We enjoy this dichotomy. We are technically proficient and creatively sublime.

Driven by Design.
We are inspired by spatial envelopes, atmospheric empathy, and visual splendour.

An Evolutionary Offering.
Skya isn’t a siloed design studio. We exist within a wider MEP framework to build on the established lighting design expertise of the GDM Group.

Sustainability isn’t just a Buzzword.
We push the creative envelope without pushing the boundaries of nature.

Integrated with the latest in AI and VR.
We’re human enough to understand that automation means efficiency.
