KLAASEN LIGHTING DESIGN (KLD) | Flagship Corporate Video


We are artists. We are collaborators. but we’re also technical We are innovators… We are lighting designers. We are team of lighting
designers, project managers with a combined experience for
well over 30 years. What’s good about our lighting design is
that we focus on sustainable and affordable lighting. That means on one hand it’s good for the environment which is also good for our clients because we’re saving them money. We are with you every step of the way from the beginning of conceptual design right through installations and commissioning, all
according to our technical specifications and best value for money. Energy saving is important for all our
projects, so through strategic planning we make sure our clients get the highest
return for their investment. Our KLD offices are in Perth, Singapore, Jakarta,
Shanghai and Delhi but our projects reach all over the world. Location assessment is important to us
so we understand a local culture of the project. This is why we will always
travel to the location to understand even if the building doesn’t exist yet,
which can happen. When we are there, we assess the environment and
its neighbouring buildings and how easy it is to access the location. We don’t design from behind our desks. We actually go to site to get a good feeling of the natural surroundings and the cultural environment so we can capture that into
our lighting design. For the lighting to look natural it’s
important to us that the lighting is seamlessly integrated in the architecture. One of the biggest advantages of KLD is that we have local teams in various countries. They speak the local language that allows us to quickly communicate with our clients follow up on site and talk to local
manufacturers. Because we’ve worked in so many countries
around the world we can draw from all these experiences in the projects that we do and that really sets us apart compared to other companies. We strongly believe in sharing our knowledge we do that through seminars to lighting associations and to writing articles in magazines. I’ve actually written a book called Light Talk and in that book I share my life as a lighting designer and every one or two months I’m off speaking somewhere as a keynote speaker. I think lighting is an integral part of design. One of the key strengths of KLD is their conceptual presentation, their
capacity to really showcase to the owner what lighting is going to be in the
public area and the room of the hotel. What I find from KLD is that they
always want to be at the forefront of technology and understand what the
manufacture’s producing. There’s not very many lighting designers that can make a building sing. We like using KLD because they’re very collaborative. It’s a clear understanding that they value light and understand what to do with light and to create magical spaces that transforms something ordinary into something spectacular. The lighting brings out a sexiness in a space that until that point is unknown to us. KLD can do that very well. Klaasen Lighting Design is able to provide great creative solutions for our clients mainly because of the diversity and experience of all our local teams. And that’s why a lot of our clients come back to us.
