Shards, shining fragments created by an imaginary cosmic Big Bang. Novel lights that act as a badge of personalisation: Shatter is a succession of elegant volumes that appear to have been detached from a single large Pangaea. The various parcels of light live singly or in original stylish sequences, and are always different and stimulating. The shining fragments of Shatter, offered in 3 different dimensions, are able to illuminate and decorate very large surroundings such as the public areas of hotels, halls, restaurants, etc., but become elements of elegant architectural plasticity also in private spaces where it is possible to use various combinations to obtain a result which has a strong and effective scenic impact. Indeed, the geometric irregularity of the 3 dimensions allows the creation of brilliant unexpected compositional inventions that are always different and original. The material, matt white painted aluminium, further underlines the effect of a carefully thought-out re-grouping of fragments and can be integrated with panache and discretion into every type of décor. Shatter is offered as a ceiling lamp, as a suspension (both in 3 sizes - small, medium and large) and as a wall lamp. The light source is fluorescent and the ballasts are dimmable (DALI).
Robert Cornelissen, Serge Cornelissen
Cornelissen has over 20 years of experience in the design of architectural lighting products. He started his carreer as an architect graduate. Serge Cornelissen's approach to product design has continued to demonstrate a particular love for architecture that is visible in the sense of proportion and detail of every design.
His architectural background has led to a thorough understanding of the particular role of lighting solutions in their architectural contexts, thus enhancing the chances of a product's success on the market.
The intent of each new design project is to combine aesthetic and technical and economic constraints into a coherent concept with a clear mission to fulfil a specific lighting need. As these constraints are different every time, each new design has to start from scratch, with a single line on a white sheet of paper. For that reason, the designs by Serge Cornelissen are not characterized by its own recognizable style or a designer's signature justifying certain aesthetic choices. Instead, the studio's philosophy is that the field of architectural lighting is just as diverse as architecture itself.
Serge Cornelissen designs are regularly awarded at international design awards.
The Serge Cornelissen design office began its activities in 1993. It was founded by Serge Cornelissen (1970) who graduated in architecture in 1993 from the Sint Lucas Institute in Ghent Belgium.
Serge Cornelissen is assisted by Robert Cornelissen (1946), who has designed lighting fixtures since 1982 for WEVER & DUCRÉ (Belgium) and MODULAR LIGHTING INSTRUMENTS (Belgium). The studio, specialized exclusively in the design of architectural lighting fixtures and systems, starting with designs for MODULAR INTERNATIONAL (USA) and for several other Belgian lighting companies including DELTA LIGHT (Belgium).
Since then, designs by Cornelissen studio have been developed by trend setting lighting companies. Cornelissen design office designed for Axolight Rythmos, Shatter LED and Lik collections.
