Pétur Benediktsson

Lighting Designer

Iceland Office

Pétur is trained as an Electrical Technician and Lighting Designer. In the early 90’s he worked in stage lighting at the National Theatre in Iceland. He continued his work with lighting design and control systems by joining EFLA in 2007.

Lighting design, for Pétur, is how a simple object can be manipulated using lighting to induce different perspectives, feelings or moods. His experience in stage lighting informs his lighting design practice today.

While out of the office, Pétur likes to spend time outdoor fishing, kayaking and shooting, while his beer is brewing back home.
