Koert Vermeulen founded ACTLD, an independent lighting & visual design agency, in Brussels/Belgium in 1995 and began creating lighting-, set-, video- and content designs for large-scale events, “sound & light” shows, theatre and music productions. Since 1998, he has expanded his work towards architectural lighting design for retail projects, city master plans, heritage sites and exhibitions. In 2005, Koert designs for Franco Dragone the lighting & video for the prestigious permanent aquatic spectacle “Le Rêve”, at the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in USA. In the same year he was appointed as a professor at the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. In 2010 Koert was selected to be the principal lighting and multimedia designer for the opening and closing ceremony of the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. Since 2006, he develops a new expression of contemporary Light Art installations such as “OVO” multi-sensory art object, “Tree rings” installation on the Champs-Elysées Avenue in Paris (2011 – 2014) and latest in date “Timeless Elegance” (2015-2017) illumination of Regent Street in London.  Current innovative projects include notably “Neopter", new generation of drones destined to entertainment industry and “Immersive Experience”, a multi-sensory approach to the architecture and retail environment. For over 20 years, Koert never stopped to innovate and continues to experiment with new ways to enrapture audiences and to develop new design techniques, constantly researching new domains of application.
