Founded in 1995, Brunklaus Amsterdam is a cutting-edge Dutch design company internationally recognized for its printed textiles and lighting objects. The collections of designer Nicolette Brunklaus, who was trained as an artist, often juxtapose old with new, solid with transparent and hard with soft, transforming materials as diverse as silk, velvet, wood and steel into designs with a unique poetic and intimate character.
For her designs, Nicolette Brunklaus manipulates her own images, playing with texture, color and shapes, to create lighting objects that are inspired by personal memories, but whose messages resonate universally. The iconic Shady Tree pendant lamp, designed in 2002 and nominated for the FX International Interior Design Awards, and the recent Oak and Silk lamps are exemplary for the eclectic Brunklaus design approach.
In 2014 Nicolette Brunklaus was invited by one of the worlds largest carpet companies, Ege Carpets in Denmark, to design an exclusive carpet collection. The resulting Canvas Collage collection was launched in August 2014 and is now one of the spearhead designer collections of Ege.
Designed to be timeless, the products from Brunklaus Amsterdam are handcrafted exclusively in The Netherlands and sold worldwide. Brunklaus Amsterdam has cooperated successfully with leading architects for many hotel-, office- and hospitality projects as well in projects for private housing around the world.
