After a career of more than 25 years in the lighting business as a lighting architect, Koen Van Guijze decided to put his ideas of his own lighting designs on paper. This resulted in a brutalistic yet contemporary collection of basics for walls, ceilings and floorlamps.
The Sofisticato family was born, and was picked up soon by the company Serax, who took the collection in their portfolio.
At the moment Koen Van Guijze is creating new lighting desings who are more one-of- a-kind items for site-specific projects as for the new wave of collectible design
after two passages at the famous Collectible fair in brussels, and the website of his work coming soon, he is eager to show new work at the Contemporary design Market in September.
