Renowned for selling high-end lighting products for the last 26 years, Steltz International started an exclusive partnership with Brand van Egmond this year. In line with its launch and as an introductory treat, it offers special prices on the said products.

 

Brand van Egmond was founded in 1989 by husband-and-wife team William Brand, an architect, and Annet van Egmond, a sculptor. Since then, the brand has become a trend-setter, illuminating the homes of the world’s aristocracy and glitterati.

 

Its first famous lighting sculpture was “Hollywood Chandelier” which became an instant icon. In 2004, it shed its light over the 76th Academy Awards presentation in the US. In their native country, Brand van Egmond’s “Night Watch” chandeliers were selected by the Dutch government to decorate the VIP Lounge of the Dutch pavilion at the World Expo 2008 in Zaragoza.

 

In 2010, the couple launched their first book, “Lighting Sculptures,” carried by all major bookstores worldwide, including the Moma museum bookstore in New York.
