About Tobias Rylander

Swedish-born, Los Angeles-based lighting designer Tobias G. Rylander has created an explosive impact within the industry through his ingenious vision of visual expression. After realizing his interest in lighting and visual design, he worked his way through the technical side of the industry for several years as a lighting tech at local lighting companies and at the Swedish Royal Opera.

Within just a few years, he gained worldwide recognition as a highly innovative, daring, and accomplished lighting and live show conceptual designer, working with acts such as The XX, Mark Ronson and Phoenix.

Rylander has recently branched out into the fashion world, designing runway shows and events for clients like Balenciaga and Calvin Klein. He continues to create stage and lighting designs most recently for acts such as The 1975, FKA Twigs, London Grammar, Little Dragon, and Skepta.
