Emilio Hernandez

Co-Founder | STRÖM, Sweden

Emilio originally worked in natural daylight design but now works predominantly in artificial lighting design. He has worked on a diverse set of projects with experience in residential, mixed use commercial, hospitality, schools and urban regeneration projects.

After 15 years in lighting design in London (just as he was starting to get the hang of it) Emilio recently moved to Sweden and co-founded ‘Ström’ (with his partner Anna Sandgren). This move has provided the independence to form partnerships to help develop and promote the sustainable lighting design values needed as we head to a net zero carbon future.

As an active member of the lighting community Emilio has spoken at design conferences and provided CPD’s and is one of several founding members of the Green-Light Alliance and current sitting chair.
