materials, intuitive forms and forward-thinking technology.
studying product design (Parsons), philosophy (NYU), and architecture (The
Architectural Association), Brittain began her career designing and producing
bespoke door hardware. Handcrafting hardware allowed her to unify her diverse
interests and discover a love of metalworking. She continued to hone her craft
while acting as Design Director for the renowned Lindsey Adelman Studio from
2008 – 2011. In 2011, Brittain opened her own studio in Red Hook Brooklyn,
where she developed her signature product, the critically acclaimed SHY Light.
the help of a small and dedicated team, Brittain continues to explore and
experiment with new techniques and materials, pushing the boundaries of
American-made, centerpiece lighting design. Bec Brittain products are all
designed and engineered by Bec; each is then produced in New York, using a
broad variety of techniques and a trusted network of local fabricators and
artisans. Every piece is hand assembled by our studio team and personally
inspected by the designer.
