01 about

Pila is a Lighting Architect and Perception Psychology Consultant based in Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (Bangkok). Her sustainable architectural background, passion for light, and specialist technical knowledge have made her one of Asia’s leading Lighting Designers.

Illuminated and flickering childhood toys first sparked her interest in light, and this interest continued during her years studying Architecture. Her designs present a conversation between light and shadow.

Pila graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture and a Rector Certificate of Honours then she continued her studies with a Master of Architectural Lighting Design at Hochschule Wismar – University of Applied Sciences, Germany. In 2005, she completed her theatrical and architectural lighting design apprenticeship with Jesper Kongshaug, Scenograferne, Det Kongelige Theater (The Royal Danish Theatre), Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Then she joined White Arkitekter AB in Gothenburg, Sweden, returned to Thailand, and continued working with light ever since throughout Asia for about 19 years till now. Currently, she is a founder of RANGSI ATELIER; an independent Lighting Architect, Perception Science & Psychology Consultant, Business Development Consultant, Guest Lecturer, Speaker, and more! Pila is also a WIL (Women In Lighting) Ambassador for Thailand which is the connecting point between Thai and the world's lighting design families.

Pila's lighting experience in Europe, Asia, and Nordic countries has sharpened her ability to merge local culture and modern lighting design in the best possible way.

She is a Registered Architect in Thailand. To share her knowledge, she has been invited to guest lectures at the Assumption University (ABAC) and since 2016 at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Bangkok, Thailand.
