About Us

Margit Wittig is a sculptor, painter and designer-maker of contemporary bespoke lighting and more recently screens and occasional furniture. Margit turns lighting into art, launching her handcrafted table lamps in 2010. She studied sculpture and stone carving at the Sculpture Academy in as well as metal work at Central Saint Martins. Her observations of the human form inspire her figurative bronze and resin sculpture with a nod to Brancusi and Giacometti. All these influences inform her designs which have been described by Kit Kemp as ‘curious, intriguing, classical, yet lyrical.’ Margit’s lighting features in Kit Kemp’s new book Design Threads with individually made lamps in various Firmdale Hotels in London and New York. She works in various materials such as bronze, clay, resin, glass and jasomonite. The elements are sculpted in clay to create a mould before being cast in resin which is then hand patinated. Clients can choose from a number of these elements in the form of sculptured heads and gold-leaves, separated for example by a balanced fusion of shapes in coloured resin, hand blown glass drops.

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

Everything is handmade and most of my work is bespoke. The lamps for example are made to order from combinations of bronze resin sculpture and handmade glass elements, creating a personal piece of beautiful and functional art. Margit’s work can be viewed by appointment in her home gallery.
