Serge Cornelissen stands for 25 years of experience in the design of architectural lighting products.
Starting his career as graduated architect, Serge Cornelissen's approach to product design has continued to demonstrate a particular love for architecture, visible in the sense of proportion and detail of every design.so, this architectural background has led to a thorough acknowledgement of the particular role of lighting solutions in their architectural context, enhancing the chances of a product's success on the market.
The intent of each new design project is to combine aesthetical, technical and economic constraints into a coherent concept with a clear mission to fulfil a certain lighting need. As these constraints are different every time, each new design has to start from scratch, with a single line on a white sheet of paper. For that reason, the designs by Serge Cornelissen are not characterized by an own recognizable style or a designer's signature justifying certain aesthetical choices. Instead, the bureau's philosophy is that the field of architectural lighting is just as diverse as architecture itself.
Serge Cornelissen designs are regularly rewarded by international design awards.
