Koert Vermeulen founded ACT Lighting Design in Brussels/B in 1995 and began creating large-scale lighting designs for theatre productions, music festivals, fashion shows, exhibitions and other (corporate) events. His encounter with Franco Dragone in 1999, led him to one of his most renowned projects: “Le Rêve”, now a permanent aquatic spectacle in Las Vegas/USA. In 2004 he joined forces with Bruno Demeester to specialize further in architectural lighting design.

In the same year he was appointed as a professor at Hogeschool Antwerpen where he lectures regularly on Lighting Design. In 2009 he was selected to be the lighting and multimedia designer for the opening and closing ceremony of the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore.
