Swedish designer K. Anders Pehrson was born in 1912 in Gothenburg. He studied engineering in his hometown, and began working for Philips in 1952, as a Design Manager—a position he maintained until 1963.

In 1964, Pehrson became the owner, Head of Operations, and Artistic Director of the lighting manufacturer Ateljé Lyktan in Åhus. Following in the footsteps of Ateljé Lyktan founder Hans Bergström, Pehrson paid attention to lighting in the workplace, concerning himself and his designs with the improving the lighting in public and industrial environments. Unlike his predecessor Bergström, Pehrson championed a more industrial and large-scale approach to design, steering the company away from bespoke services toward mass production. He believed “good lighting is not always lots of light, but always several light sources”. This design philosophy resulted in not just increased number of designs, but the creation of whole lighting collections known as “families”, encouraging customers to collect the whole range.
