Ars Thanea is an award-winning CGI Studio and home to very talented creatives, thinkers and makers who blend mixtures of ideas and craft around extremely engaging stories to deliver stunning, effective results for their clients.
Ars Thanea loosely translates from Greek as ‘the art of imagination’ and when we visited their Warsaw studio it quickly became apparent that they live up to their name.
The predominantly glass building is papered with drawings penned by their artists. The space is broken up creatively by wood, rope and other structural features that retain a feeling of openness. A variety of interesting lighting rigs add to the ambience of the different areas and there’s even a bed if the day becomes a bit much and you feel like a nap.
We were there to understand the role that HDR Light Studio plays in the creation of their beautiful work and spent time getting under the hood on some recent projects. You can see the results in our video below.
A massive thanks to our amazing hosts at Ars Thanea for being so welcoming.

We know that many customers have tried their best in the past to give us credit. But there have been quite a variety of spellings of our product name – We have seen: hdrlightstudio, HDR Lightmap, HDRI Studio and HDRI Light Studio to name a few. Now we have the official listing, this should avoid those spelling problems.
