Steel & brass: a day at Jacco Maris Design

Blog Ethnic Chic about Jacco Maris Design

Last week we visited Jacco Maris and his design studio in the south of The Netherlands. Arriving at a relaxed studio in the middle of nowhere we were curious to see what the custom design makers do and how they work. Here’s the story!

Handcrafted lights

Because our interest in custom design, to create anything we like in any size or finish, we got in contact with Jacco Maris. A design company that creates handcrafted light features in many different ways, that’s what we’re looking for! It’s always nice to know these brands for specific requests or projects.

Steel & Brass

Designing with stainless steel, black steel and brass. For the craftsmen at Jacco Maris Design these are the main elements to create custom lightings on request, and we love it. Talking with Jacco Maris himself he said: “Making something out of nothing and creating maximum forms from minimal amounts of materials… These are unique objects which are skilfully and individually handcrafted in our own studio, since 1994. And because all light fittings are made by hand, we can, if desired, supplement its standard collections with bespoke work and special designs, incorporating the client’s specific wishes in every fine detail.”
