Dark was founded in 2000 by Marnick Smessaert. It’s an outsider in the Belgian designer world: young in spirit, playful, and experimental. The fixtures that Dark produces are always works of art that fit in every space ranging from minimalistic designs to complex installations.
Dark has built up an international reputation in a short period of time. The brand’s lamps are more than just practical lighting. These are beautiful and meaningful fixtures. Dark stands for a new lighting vision. It believes lighting is never just lighting.
The company attracts established designers with impressive portfolios. It also attracts young emerging talent to surprise with their first masterpiece. The collection contains designs from Luc Vincent, Geert Ramaut, Christophe De Ryck, Jan Melis, Ben Oostrum, and many other top designers.
You’re in good company with Dark lighting. You can admire this brand’s fixtures in the successful film ‘Loft’ and in the 'Jim Kot Deuxe’ campaign. The exclusive fixtures won prizes in the German 'Red Dot Design Awards’, the Oscars of the designer world.
The Dark product range contains some beautiful designs. Designs, such as the 'Coolfin', '12-25', or 'Crosslight' rouse you, draw your attention, and stay with you. It is stylish young lighting that is guaranteed to catch the eye in every room.
Dark lighting can now be purchased in 54 countries across the globe. The brand also has an admirable track record with a lot of lighting projects in well-known properties, including the Oud Sluis and the Design Museum in Ghent.
