lunaria [where i work] is now featuring brand van egmond - a new lighting line from the netherlands and each fixture is simply incredible. bve manufactures products that are handmade with a character of their own. raw materials, consisting of steel and crystal form the basis of brand van egmond designs. these materials are applied in a contemporary manner and each item produced is labeled with its own number and seal.
when i first saw an image of bve’s “icy lady” its style held what i recognized to be, an uncanny resemblance to that of lady gaga. if she were a light she would be the icy lady. then as i looked through the catalog further i noticed that each fixture is abstract, strange and contorted while remaining entirely intriguing, inspiring & beautiful. to some folks, these lights may be over the top on the whimsy scale, just as the provocative costuming of lady gaga may be off-putting to others. yet both are entirely original and superior at their own artistry…one in sculptural lighting, the other in music.
gaga + the icy lady
