Koert Vermeulen Lighting and Life

Koert Vermeulen Lighting and Life

Koert Vermeulen’s most prominent current lighting design is his breathtaking illumination of Expo Milano's Tree of Life, a sweeping 121' tall structure inspired by Michelangelo. The connection between Vermeulen and the 16th century master is fitting, since the Belgium LD is himself a Renaissance man of lighting. How else to describe a designer who's illuminated everything from the Champs-Élysées to edgy techno festivals? Speaking to us from his ACT Lighting Design office in Brussels, Vermeulen talked about his diverse mix of projects and the perspective it gives him on lighting and life. Enjoy.
