About the author
I started my lighting design career in 1979 (yes, more than 30 years ago!) with Philips Lighting Design & Engineering Centre in Eindhoven, Holland. In 1988 I was sent out to set up the Philips project lighting design center in Asia, based in Singapore, but in 1991 I left and started my own business, Lumino Design International, on the back of my first breakthrough project, becoming one of the three lighting designers for the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, at the time the highest building in the world. In 1997, with the asian economy crash, I moved to Australia and successfully built Lighting Images to be a reputable lighting design practice with projects throughout Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific. As of the 1st January this year 2011 I will work exclusively through my new company KLD (Klaasen Lighting Design) to apply and express my passion for lighting design.
