Frans is an internationally renowned lighting designer who joined the Lux team in 2021.
Watching live concerts and festivals on TV as a young kid ignited a love for how lighting brings a show to life. At just nine years old, Frans started a hobby disco show with a friend that grew into a legitimate business. Twenty years later, he’s still in love with creating lighting shows, but with bigger and better toys.
He studied sound and vision in The Netherlands, specialising in lighting design. Touring the UK with Take That in 2009 opened his eyes to the world of logistics and large scale production, which set the tone for his professional career. Since then, he’s worked primarily on large scale dance festivals around the world. One of his favourite experiences include working on the 2015 Defqon.1 Festival in Santiago, Chile. The energy and atmosphere was pure magic – unlike anything he’d ever seen before.
His experience in the European festival market is invaluable to Lux. He’s a perfectionist and uses his global networks to discover new and exciting ways to create the best lighting shows Perth has seen.
Outside of work, Frans is a keen woodworker and DIY aficionado. A Dutch native, Frans followed his heart to Perth where he now lives with his wife and young family. Lights are cool, but nothing makes him happier than rolling around on the lounge room floor with his young son.POSTED ON 13/12/2022
