Nikolaj Birkelund, lighting designer, For The Love of Light, Denmark. 

Nikolaj is the founder and creative director of the independent lighting design studio Fortheloveoflight, based in the heart of Copenhagen. With a background as an electronics technician, which grounds him technically and makes him naturally curious about technology and innovation, Nikolaj is motivated and driven by the strong experiences and impact light can create in our lives. As a studio, Fortheloveoflight searches for these experiences through an experimental but systematic process developed from a project’s core narratives and overall vision. For them, it is important, as they plan new installations that take a place in the world, to strive to make them visually aesthetic and meaningful for the people they influence. Lighting must never be left to chance but should mindfully be conceived to inspire with an element of amazement.
