Tekna is the production company for NAUTIC. Along with this collection, with designer ERIK HUYSMANS, Tekna is also active as an consultancy for providing lighting advice and creating lighting fittings customised especially for projects.
Nautic presents a collection of authentic light fittings, made from pure materials such as bronze, copper, cast iron and brass. Our search for honest design led to an eclectic approach, preserving strong original ways of working and ancient forms with their timeless character, yet at the same time modified for contemporary use, while not forgetting today’s standards and demands in terms of finish and technical requirements. They found their inspiration in old trains and ships from a bygone age, and searched for genuine craftsmanship at factories prepared to do things their way. As a result, the obvious thing to do was choose simple functional products, in contrast to the mass of bright glitzy fittings and pastiche design so often seen in the street and private houses.
