Haute couture of the lighting world
Brand van Egmond‘s handcrafted lighting sculptures radiate passion and emotion and leave a long-lasting impression. Brand van Egmond is a Dutch lighting brand and an international trendsetter in exclusive handcrafted decorative chandeliers, ceiling lamps, floor lamps, hanging lamps, table lamps, and wall lamps.
William Brand and Annet van Egmond founded Brand van Egmond in 1989 with the sole intention to create art without restraints. Two pioneer artists with a big passion for the objects who brought the sculptures from the ground to the ceiling. This design studio has become an international trendsetter in creating innovative, independent lighting designs.
A journey of design and craftsmanship
What begins as a simple sketch with William’s pen, results in a handcrafted lighting sculpture. Only the most trained hands can translate the artist’s idea into faultless reality.
Brand graduated at the Utrecht School of the Arts in the Netherlands, where he was trained as an architect. His first lighting sculpture ‘Chandelier’ became an instant icon – setting the tone for what eventually became an impressive collection of handmade luminaires.
Combining infinite patience with a love for handwork, Brand van Egmond pays homage to the time-honoured tradition of craftsmanship. Only materials of the highest quality are used to create the brand’s designer lighting. Crafted to last for generations, its quality protects it from the passage of time.
Stirs the imagination – as well as the senses
Brand van Egmond lights are evocative, iconic, and stir both the imagination and the senses.
The brand launches new lighting collections on a yearly basis. Frequently, designer William Brand is invited for commissioned lighting installations around the world.
Brand van Egmond is located in the historic town of Naarden, The Netherlands. Situated just outside Amsterdam, the office and atelier are easily reached by car or plane.
Guests from around the world are welcome to visit. They come – after making an appointment – to be inspired by the endless possibilities of a custom lighting design. Many examples of the brand’s designer lighting are on display. A team of creatives is available to translate any personal wishes into handcrafted reality.
Operating in over 60 countries, the brand has a very diverse clientele. Several leading luxury brands like Chopard, Neuhaus, and Louis Vuitton have made the lighting sculptures of Brand van Egmond part of their retail identity. The products leave from Naarden to shine all over the world, from Shanghai to New York. Their several workshops enable them to create the most unique custom objects.
Working hand in hand with clients
William continues to welcome requests from architects, designers, and clients who seek their help in order to translate specific wishes into beautiful handcrafted lighting sculptures. The atelier’s experience and knowledge offers unlimited lighting possibilities.
