design with light

“Somehow I always knew I wanted to be an architect? I think I submitted my first design to a manufacturer of toys by the age of eight. It was for a cruise ship. It was from Polly Pocket—it’s like Barbie but very small, so something girls play with. I wanted to have this cruise ship, so I designed it. I sent over the plans and from then I always wanted to go in that direction. And actually, while studying architecture and working in the field, I noticed that architects are not really aware of light and don’t design the whole atmosphere, so from there I jumped into lighting.”

“This year I did a longer festival in Estonia, so I was up there for a month. It was three weeks in Sweden before that. I’ve done one in India, but this is actually my first time in North America.”
