After completing his architecture degree at RWTH Aachen University, Reinhard Vedder specialised in lighting design and has been working as a lighting designer for more than 20 years. The offices in Munich and Mitterberg im Ennstal (Styria) offer planning and consulting on lighting requirements for retail, commerce, architecture and urban planning.
His company, VEDDER.LICHTMANAGEMENT, sets new benchmarks for lighting and design in all sectors and areas of public life. He vigorously pursues a top-quality approach to lighting design and, in his projects, he shows that the skilful use of highest quality lighting is compatible with high cost-effectiveness. “Less makes more” is his motto and is key to the fundamental reduction of energy input alongside vivid lighting scenarios.
Therefore in 2015 Reinhard Vedder founded the Lichtplaner Akademie (Lighting Planner Academy, LPA), an association of renowned lighting designers, lighting technicians and soft-skill trainers, all with training experience, thereby ensuring that training standards for lighting designers are improved.
He is a founding member and board member of FILD, the Federation of International Lighting Designers e.V., a professional association of independent lighting designers based in Frankfurt.
