This Artist Sees Lighting Design Differently

Subversion for the sake of subversion is hard to swallow. But design that tests the limits of structure while still being functional definitely has a place in the art world.

Meet Bec Brittain. This New York-based lighting designer is not just here to adjust exposure in your kitchen. She is creating a new kind of lighting skeleton — one that elevates the practical medium into a refined art form and overhauls a room in a single switch.

Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water
champions extraordinary self-made artists creating a new mold in the design world. And Brittain certainly shines in that room.
