Bec Brittain founded her studio in Brooklyn in 2011, designing and producing the critically-acclaimed SHY light.The studio moved to Manhattan in 2016, and after a renovation, her adjacent showroom reopened in March, 2017. Bec, who is entirely self-taught, designs and engineers all her products, which are the expressions of her own ideas, rather than being market-driven. All her designs are made in New York, using a variety of techniques and a network of local fabricators and artisans, and every piece is assembled by hand in the studio under Bec’s supervision. Bec prefers to run a small-scale studio – crossover and cooperation insure that everyone has a role in everything, creating a strong and tight-knit team. For Bec, this hands-on method is equally effective for projects both small and large, and for both production pieces and custom projects. While Bec deliberately chooses not to have a large company, her studio has the expertise and experience to execute projects at many scales, including large, site-specific commissions.

Bec Brittain

Bec brittain 073 bw port 600 xxx q85

For Bec Brittain, designing lighting and products is the logical evolution of a lifelong interest in form, materials, and technology. She grew up surrounded by creative people: her mother is an artist; her father had a woodworking business; and her paternal grandparents (as well as her step-grandfather) were architects. After deciding that her initial interest in studying fashion design would lead to a career that was too trend-focused, Bec studied product design at Parsons before exploring the philosophy of design at NYU and the concepts behind architecture at the Architectural Association. An early job making custom door hardware led Bec to the realization that she loved the process of making things in metal, and a subsequent job as design director for Lindsey Adelman, the noted lighting designer, affirmed Bec’s view that lighting embodied not just the challenges of engineering and technology, but also the playfulness of form and the richness of materials. By 2011, Bec had opened her own studio in Brooklyn and designed the critically-acclaimed SHY light, named for the initials of her grandmother, the architect Sarah Hitchcock Yerkes, one of the first women to receive a master’s degree in architecture from Harvard. Bec’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Case da Abitare, and Wallpaper magazines, among many others. Her limited edition designs have been shown at Patrick Parrish Gallery, and her work was featured in a 2018 exhibition organized by 1stdibs’ in Milan during the Salone del Mobile. Her clients include today’s top architects and interior designers, and her work appears in commercial and residential projects around the world.
