White Light is a collection of the beautifully photographed interiors, the handwritten notes, and the guiding principles behind the international design team of Bernt Heiberg and William Cummings. Throughout their work, Bernt and Bill value individual expression above all and are profoundly influenced by their clients' own taste and personalities. As a result, each space Heiberg Cummings designs is unique. Whether reimagining a secluded home in the country or an apartment looking out over the skyline of Manhattan, Heiberg Cummings Design brings both an eye for Scandinavian minimalism and an appreciation for a traditional American aesthetic. They search for the meeting point between classical and innovative ideas so that they may form a space in which people can truly live. White Light includes essays by the designers detailing their inspirations and thought processes as well as vibrant photographs exemplifying their emphasis on clean lines and light-filled spaces. The combination of vivid color, black and white, and collage-style prints perfectly illustrates the eclectic style of this up-and-coming design firm.
