Zac Ridgely | Ridgely Studio Works
Zac Ridgely approaches all of his work with an artistic edge. A graduate of the Fine Arts program at Emily Carr, he is a trained artist who uses his talent in the medium of light. The son of a famed Canadian architect Ridgely grew up surrounded by creativity and quickly learned how to navigate his way through architectural drawings and job sites. In 2000 he founded Ridgely Studio Works as a way to explore his passion for sculpture and light. The Studio rapidly became a favourite go to for local architects and designers who were looking for special and unique pieces that were able to make a statement while fitting perfectly into their surroundings. The Studio has continued to grow steadily over the last 17 years and now services international clients through their standard product line with custom capabilities. Recently the Studio has expanded into select furniture design and build. Ridgely himself is available for custom one off artistic pieces. Ridgely Studio Works head office and fabrication workshop is located in Toronto.
Under the watchful eye and leadership of Zac Ridgely, Ridgely Studio Works pushes the boundaries of form by creating lighting that combines beauty, innovation, artistic sculpture and function. The unique designs incorporate materials that may not initially be associated with lighting but result in elegant and inspired fixtures with a sculptural edge. Crushed glass and onyx, cut art glass, steel mesh, spun steel and golden aluminum, are all given new life and perspective thru the designs. The team at Ridgely Studio Works is committed to excellence. All pieces are batch produced, with an extraordinary attention to detail and the highest level of quality. This superior quality and the inventiveness of the work have made Ridgely Studio Works a popular choice among leading architects and designers worldwide. With their head offices and production studio in Toronto, Ridgely Studio Works has the capability to work with architects, designers and showrooms alike and ship products throughout Canada and the United States.
