Born and raised in Reykjavik, Iceland, Kristján has been working as a Lighting Designer for a long time in a galaxy far, far away. His background is in fine art, and Kristján founded the light art group Myrkarverk, in 2012, for the opening act of Toppstöðin for Designmarch in Iceland. Since then, Myrkaraverk has featured in light art festivals throughout Europe. Kristján’s work is featured in many high-profile magazines, and he is a member of the CIBSE Society of Light and Lighting.
Kristján believes that good lighting design dances across a tightrope between art and technology.
When he is not in the office he likes playing string instruments, rock climbing, scuba diving, and sometimes wrestles polar bears.
