Brand van Egmond is a Dutch design label and an international trendsetter in exclusive handcrafted lighting and interior objects. The company was founded by William Brand and Annet van Egmond, two pioneer artists with a big passion for lighting as an element indissolubly connected to emotions.
William Brand (1963) and Annet van Egmond (1964) graduated at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Utrecht the Netherlands, where he was trained as an architect and she as a sculptor. They have been working as independent product designers for 25 years.
William and Annet founded Brand van Egmond in 1989 with the sole intention to create art without restraints. This design studio led by hands has become an international trendsetter in creating innovative, independent designs. The handcrafted lighting sculptures radiate passion and emotion and leave a long-lasting impression.
Today, William and Annet are still responsible for the design, production, art direction and management of their brand. They personally lead their five specialized studios and artisan workshops, where the fields of lighting, sculpture and applied art meet.
Their designs are being published in worldwide leading magazines. The products leave from Naarden to shine all over the world, from Shanghai to New York. From Royals to Rappers. Their ateliers enable them to create the most special big custom objects and lighting sculptures. Many considerable international cross branding partners such as Chopard, Louis Vuitton, Four Seasons Hotels, Hilton Hotels, La Cornue and Neuhaus use their lighting sculptures in their establishments. Many pop stars and movie stars as well as royals, all handled in a discreet way, are told to be among their customers.
