Brand van Egmond

Design label Brand van Egmond is the pioneer in Dutch haute couture lighting design. Architect William Brand and sculptor Annet van Egmond founded Brand van Egmond in 1989 with the sole intention to create art without restraints. Each bringing something different to the brand, the duo has transformed their design studio into an international trendsetter for creating innovative, independent designs.

Here are some of their newer pieces. Pictured above is a chandelier in the Coco collection from 2009, which features various lighting using black and clear crystals that resemble antique jewelry wrapped around feminine silhouettes. I love the sconce (below).

2009’s La Vie en Rose is a more poetic and romantic series of lighting sculptures featuring branches, bouquets and roses.

The 2010 Digital Dreams collection was inspired by photography and includes black digital frames for all your favorite photos.
