An enlightened mind lights up space by incorporating ideas and imagination into the design elements. Lighting is not only about illuminating a place or an area, but it is deeply ingrained in the very character of that place.

Creatively crafted lighting complements an interior or exterior space’s aesthetics, ambience, and very essence by amplifying brightness into all the nooks and corners and exemplifying the brilliance of the panoramas thus far hidden in the veil of darkness.

Furthermore, in the technologically advancing era, the lighting of every area should reflect the innate purpose of the structure it stands for. This technology must be at the core of all the enlightenment glowing through the spacetime of the building’s personalities.

Redefining the modern era’s lighting scope is DALIS LIGHTING, an Artistically Architectonical Lighting brand of DIYA ARCHITECTURAL SOLUTIONS.

“DALIS LIGHTING” was founded in 2017 by Mahesh Surasgar, the Co-founder, as a design and manufacturing company for Led lighting needs. He shares, “We have served a diverse range of clients from the retail segment.”

Mahesh is an IIM- Lucknow Alumni who pursued master’s in Advance Strategic Management and has worked for some of the Best Lighting Companies based out of Europe and Japan. His passion towards architectural Lighting resulted in “DALIS LIGHTING®”

Over the years, the company added Hospitality Experiences, Museum and Experience Centres, Corporate Workspaces, High-end Retail Spaces, Developer Spaces and Residential Spaces to its repertoire.

Each year, and with each new project, DALIS has gained new technological ground and achieved higher standards of quality. Today, the company has emerged as a design-driven company collaborating with some of the country’s finest architects and interior designers. Embodying finesse, luxury and sleek minimalism, each light is an exemplar of impeccable craftsmanship, every project an exercise in scientific study, originality, and perseverance. With a diverse range of products and collections to choose from and an eye on the possibilities of the future, DALIS is only just getting started.

Mahesh spoke in an interview with CIOLOOK INDIA elaborating on the many aspects of DALIS and its present and future.
