Bec Brittain

Bec Brittain is a New York–based lighting and product designer driven by a love of luxurious materials, intuitive forms, and forward-thinking technology.  
Bec Brittain pushes the boundaries of lighting design through her sculptural, experimental approach. Her complex geometric forms bring to mind architectonic jewelry at times, and otherworldly constellations at others.

Echo

The Echo series uses fins of mirror radiating from a central axis to reflect beams of light. LED tubes are turned inward to bounce off the glass; the light becomes both softened and multiplied. Also available with fins of white glass which diffuse the light and softly glow.

Aries VIII.I in brushed brass

Aries was inspired by the artist Olafur Eliasson’s concept and set design for the ballet Tree of Codes, in which dancers wore all-black suits, highlighted with LEDs. Aries creates a piece where the points of light are the focus, and the structure itself is as minimal as possible while flexible enough to create constellation-like forms that recall the night sky, with its bright and sparkling lights refracted through the glass prisms.

SHY 02 in polished brass

SHY creates form with lines of light; thin LED tubes, with their spare beauty, define the edges of its shape. Thus, the function of the piece and its form are inseparable, and the ethereal quality of the LEDs is balanced by the warmth of brass. SHY’s modular hardware lends itself to a myriad of configurations, both standard and custom, producing new shapes according to what a space demands.

Flags

The Resolute collection is drawn from Bec Brittain’s solo show at The Future Perfect, her first since 2013 and the first at the New York gallery. Characterized by a new sense of confidence, the work is at once harmonious and instinctive. By introducing a new visual vocabulary, focusing on the interplay between mirrors, metals and glass, Brittain has created the essential components that can be customized in myriad ways, making up site-specific installations and audacious large scale commissions.
