International Engineering and Design firm offers Innovative "Italian Sytle" Illumination

We've established superb techniques in state-of-the-art lighting for monuments, churches, historical buildings, gardens, arenas, shopping malls, and other major structures

After accomplishing some of the most talked-about light design and engineering projects in Italy - including the famed Vittorio Emanuele II Monument in Rome - Michael-Bruno, LLC, has "spun-off its team of fiber optic specialists in a new division called, simply, "LIGHT by MB."

"We've established superb techniques in state-of-the-art lighting for monuments, churches, historical buildings, gardens, arenas, shopping malls, and other major structures," said Michael Sedge, president of Michael-Bruno, which operates seven offices in the United States and one in Europe. "We've recently completed a second project in Italy, this time the cloisters of a 13th century monastery in Naples. The project, funded by the region of Campania, was a spectacular success using over 20 kilometers of fiber optics."

One of the firms more unique projects, according to division head, Giuseppe Bruno, is a multiplex cinema (13 screen rooms), for which they incorporated fiber optic light designs on the external facade of the structure with moving light.

"The illumination moves, while changing color and speed based on the music of the film in the main viewing room. This weekend, for instance, with THE DA VINCI CODE playing, the light flowed white-to-blue-to-red, depending on the drama. It moved faster or slower through fiber optic tubing, based on the music rhythm. Thus, from the outside of the theater one would, in a sense, get a feel for the movie inside," Bruno explained.

Michael-Bruno is hoping to take its "LIGHT by MB" to commercial clients throughout the United States, including construction and design firms.
