Iris Dijkstra finished her Masters degree in Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft, (“Design for Sustainability”) and since has specialized in lighting design.
In 2004 she founded Atelier LEK (Light-Energy-Color) a widely-oriented, independent design company that focusses on the quality of spacial (night) experiences: in public spaces, exterior and interior of buildings.
Iris is a generalist with a broad interest in technical, architectural and (social) sustainability subjects. Her analitical and strategic level of (design)thinking make her feel at home in projects such as masterplanning and multi disciplinary design processes.
In Lighting design her passion is to create ingenious, clear concepts where the positive experience of the user is the focus. Many clients have praised her for her committed attitude to deliver the quality of lighting until the last luminaire and detail is in place.
