Making something out of nothing and creating maximum forms from minimal amounts of materials… This is the basic concept that underlies the creation, since 1994, of the light features of Jacco Maris. These are unique objects that combine powerful and exciting looks with graceful harmony and subtle elegance, and which are skilfully and individually handcrafted in their own studio.
Most of the designs are based on the bending of a metal strip. Steel strip, the material from which most of the light fittings are made, is therefore the most important trademark of Jacco Maris Design. Stainless steel, black steel and brass are also distinctive elements that are used on their own or in combination. In this way, over the years, seven remarkable lighting collections have been developed, each with its own recognisable character. Since 2001, the collections have been created in cooperation with Ben Quaedvlieg.
