When it comes to contemporary luxury lighting designs, Brand Van Egmond are one of the names that shine the brightest. A trendsetter in handcrafted decorative lighting, the company are unparalleled in their excellence.
Earlier this year Brand Van Egmond appeared at The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF for short), showcasing the expertise they’ve spent years fine tuning and expanding in a wholly unique setting.
Taking place every spring, The European Fine Art Fair sees the city of Maastricht, The Netherlands transformed into one of the most recognised art destinations in the world. The event showcases the best art and design from all across the last 7000 years, highlighting the most striking that are currently on the market.
The first European Fine Art Fair exhibition took place in 1988. In the years since, the fair has since only proved to have grown, and is now an unequalled event for collectors, curators, museum directors, conservators, and art lovers.
Brand Van Egmond have been involved with The European Fine Art Fair for many years as their exclusive lighting partner. The brand works with the event and supplies a wide variety of lighting sculptures for all hospitality areas – as well as showcasing expositions at their own stand – during the fair.
Some of Brand Van Egmond’s most well known, celebrated, and striking designs are in view throughout the duration of the event. Some of these lighting sculptures include the Fractal Cloud, the Delphinium, the Hollywood, the Hollywood Icicles, the Crystal Waters, and the Floating Candles.
Speaking at the event, company founder William Brand offered seven tips to consider when finding the right lighting design for you.
1. Use light as your “pièce de résistance.”
2. Introduce repetition to create atmosphere.
3. Mix form and function; play with different materials and textures.
4. Carefully consider your choice of bulbs.
5. Use direct light whenever possible.
6. Work with an interior designer who specializes in lighting.
7. Remember that the right lighting should make people feel good.
As such an integral part of the event, and such a distinctive presence of the celebration year after year after year, Brand Van Egmond founder William Brand was a natural focus subject for a new short film from The European Fine Art Fair.
