In addition to being a senior associate, he is also the founder and sole principal of Arclight Design, his architectural lighting design consultancy which also functions as an in-house lighting consultant for tonychi studios. Each year since 1995, Mr. Singer has taught the one-semester graduate level course - “Luminaire Design” - in the Graduate Lighting Program at Parsons’ School of Design. These multiple roles are well fitted to David’s unique talents and skill as an architect, lighting and fixture designer, and instructor.


In collaboration with the tonychi studio for 13 years, David has worked on each of the over 280 projects on 5 continents, and has personally been responsible for the design of all the decorative lighting fixtures, on average 200-300 designs per year.
