Lighting designer Seth Bernstein's work has often met at the crossroads of art, entertainment, fashion, and luxury. 

“I think the through line running through my work is [using] thoughtful design to solve a problem,” says Bernstein. 
 

"I’m in and out of TV and events and concerts. I have a no-fear approach that ends up solving problems.” 

Bernstein says a guiding principle to his portfolio is minimalism and elegance—crafting designs that aren’t overly complicated and finding a clear way to tell a story through lighting.

A veteran of the most fast-paced environments in show business—“Saturday Night Live” and the late-night talk show circuit among his many credits—lighting designer Seth Bernstein knows what it takes to get things done. 

 

"My job as a lighting designer for television is to be a little bit psychic, and see around the corners: hear the unheard, see the unsaid, and plan the lighting design in a way that gives the most flexibility with no room for error."
