Mr. Lai's design sensibilities draw from a broad spectrum of professional training, including photography, theatre design and interior design. Each of these influences contributed to and nurtured his creative spirit, ultimately leading Mr. Lai to focus his energy and expertise towards the practice of lighting design.

Media has lauded Mr. Lai for his imaginative lighting design work, calling him a "lighting poet". He believes that lighting is not just a matter of vision, but rather a sensation. He was also an early proponent of the theory of "subtractive lighting design": the idea that removing light can be equally important to atmosphere as adding light.
