ADG and Michael Berman: Sketching the Possibilities

outdoor living space by luxurious pool created by

When two creative forces meet over a sketchpad, the possibilities are endless. There is nothing more exciting or gratifying than to explore ideas and concepts of a design, then translate that into visual possibilities on a sketchpad. That’s how innovation in design is created!

Over the years, we have had the distinct pleasure of creating possibilities with one of the most prolific and creative designers in the industry, Michael Berman. Michael is a premier designer in the Los Angeles area who has created breathtaking projects for numerous high profile clients and properties on a global scale. With over 25 years experience, Michael has been able to translate the vision into reality in such a creative and thoughtful manner, that he has become of of the most in demand designers in the industry. The key to our success is that we have been able to understand Berman’s needs and precisely execute his vision. He is one of our favorite designers!

Sitting down with Berman is such a satisfying and energizing process. Over the years, we have been able to collaborate on many noteworthy projects, such as GUESS co-founder Armando Marciano’s Beverly Hills residence (now currently owned by Elton John), a beautiful estate in the Carmel Valley area of Monterey, and numerous other projects in the hospitality and restaurant industries, including design collaborations at the Arroyo Chop House and the Parkway Grill in Pasadena.

Recently, we were able to collaborate on a project for the annual Modernism Show in Palm Springs, CA. His project was met with astounding acclaim — Berman stated that the ADG floor lamps were the “hit of the show!” We are honored to continue our creative exploration with a design icon like Michael Berman.

ADG Lighting Adds The Magic Touch To Kardashian Style

Architectural Digest Celebrity Homes Kardashian

We are always thrilled to have an opportunity to work on projects in celebrity and high-end luxury homes across Southern California. These projects allow us the distinct opportunity to work with some of the most creative and innovative designers in the industry. Often, these projects are featured in publications and highlighted in editorials, increasing the value and notariety of the property. Our work is still the “secret sauce” of the industry and we bring a key design and creative element to the style of these properties. In the March 2016 issue of Architectural Digest, our work was highlighted in the home of Kourtney Kardashian. The feature showed off the elegance and sophistication of the space. The lighting elements that appear in the feature were initially commissioned by the previous owner, but retained in the remodel by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. We were honored that Kourtney and Martyn understood the impact and timelessness of our pieces.

ADG Lighting graces the pages of so many industry magazines that feature the timeless projects of exceptionally talented designers. The architects and designers of these featured projects graciously and openly provide our information for credit. However, with so many of these publications, including Architectural Digest, our work is not credited in the publication. We believe that the lack of proper credit for artistic and creative credit in these publications is related to the business relationship with that publication. These publications want to credit and highlight contributors that are also paying advertisers with their publication.

Our position has been and always will be that we provide unique design and manufacturing of custom lighting that significantly enhance any design project. ADG Lighting remains one of the best kept secrets in the industry and we are proud to fill that role. For those who provide proper credit and acknowledgement, we appreciation your generosity. For those clients who know about us and choose to work with our creative team, we know that you receive the best treatment in the industry and the creative edge over all others.
