Danish designer Peter Bysted graduated as an architect and industrial designer from The Aarhus School of Architecture in 1978.
Three years prior, in a contest arranged by Louis Poulsen concerning the illumination of quarters worthy of preservation, he won second prize with ‘Bysted’, a bollard made from corten steel, suggesting his interest in lighting design even then. While a student he was also very interested in graphic design and it was the combination of these two fields that would later characterise his design and communicational firm Bysted A/S, established in Copenhagen in 1987.
