Jewel Lights by Koen Van Guijze – bespoke light design
Small geometrical shapes, turned in gold. Like art, light objects can give warmth and inspiration. Koen has creates several light objects that give comfort for the soul.
Koen Van Guijze is a lighting designer with brutalist and minimalist roots. He works with ‘authentic’ materials such as steel, brass, concrete, cork, ceramics, sand, and paper to create one-of-a-kind collectible lighting pieces and site-specific projects. His approach to design combines brutalism with a sophisticated attention to details.
After a career of more than 25 years in the lighting business as a lighting architect, Koen van Guijze decided to put his ideas of his own lighting designs on paper. This resulted in a brutalist, yet contemporary collection of basics for walls, ceilings, and floor lamps.
At the moment, Koen van Guijze is creating new lighting designs that are more one-of-a-kind items for site-specific projects and design collectors exhibited at events like Collectible and Contemporary Design Market Brussels.
