A landmark in Chicago’s River North Design District since 2001, Lightology is a three-story, 20,000 square foot award-winning showroom that has paved its path to become the premier lighting destination in North America.
Recognized for its massive glass storefront and lush rooftop garden, Lightology is brimming with some of the most exclusive fixtures from around the globe, many unavailable anywhere else in the United States.
The ever-evolving, curated collection brings together powerhouse designers like Michael Anastassiades, Tom Dixon, and Jonathan Adler with up-and-coming boutique brands like Il Pezzo Mancante, Workstead and Wonderglass.
Nestled among the fixtures, you’ll find contemporary art pieces worthy of an international art gallery, such as the Self-Portrait Clock by Maarten Baas, or Swarm Study by Random International.
Make your way to the second floor and behold Lightology’s crown jewel: The Morpheus Room. Stark white walls and minimalist, architectural lighting create a space that appears to be pulled from the future. With the tap of a button, the room transforms, bathed in colorful LED. Another tap on the touchscreen remote, and suddenly a skylight appears overhead, showing clear and sunny blue skies. This is actually the CoeLux artificial skylight — a high-tech marvel that mimics an overhead window — you can even program the cast “sunlight” to move across your room throughout the day, in real time with the actual sun.
Once you’re done dreaming, shopping and exploring, head up to the rooftop garden and soak in the city views. Lightology has become a Chicago destination, akin to the MCA or Shedd Aquarium, drawing architects, designers and students from around the world. It’s a great place to spend a Saturday, and an even better place to get inspired for your next home project.
Visit the showroom located at 215 W. Chicago Ave., and receive a one-on-one consultation with our ALA-certified staff and expert lighting consultants who will help design your space with the latest technology from start to finish.
