We create lighting without compromise

Founded in 2022 by industry leader Craig Corona, Aura is a New York-based custom lighting manufacturer. With decades of experience as founder and CEO of Lukas Lighting (acquired by Flos in 2015) and decorative lighting manufacturer Sirmos Lighting, Craig brings life-long enthusiasm and a career’s worth of expertise to the designers, developers, architects, and artists Aura serves.

Aura’s team has over a century of combined experience creating bespoke lighting that enhances and enlivens their projects. We collaborate closely with our partners from inspiration through installation support, combining deep technical expertise with elegant craftsmanship and a knack for finding creative solutions to any lighting challenge. Our designs illuminate all kinds of spaces all over the world, including commercial, corporate, educational, hospitality and fine art and cultural settings.

In our view, perfect lighting redefines the space it inhabits, but always feels inevitable.

Aura Custom Lighting understands craft and the nuanced aspects of illumination, with a distinct skill for making sophisticated objects appear simple. They have been an invaluable resource for my firm for over 20 years.

Michael Castelli

Aura brings expertise in diffusion, materials, and electrical and structural engineering not found in custom manufacturing. Whenever we are dreaming big with rare materials, complex shapes, difficult coordination, and everything needs to be perfect, we go to Aura. Aura has an incredible depth of experience in custom lighting that they bring to every project. Nobody else that we've worked with has the tools to perfect custom tints, diffusion, and transparency in a variety of materials.
