Behind the Design

Seguso for Van den Akker

Rob Copley and Sean Robins, the design minds behind Studio Van den Akker, recently joined in a groundbreaking collaboration with Seguso to introduce lighting and accessories that embody a uniquely tactile and fluid version of modern luxury.

The collection, Seguso for Van den Akker, is comprised of a variety of hand blown table, floor and hanging lamps as well as vases and centerpieces, all in a lush modern palette of amber, gray and gold combined with iridescent, clear and opaque glass.

Rob and Sean reviewed Seguso’s 600-year-old archives for the inspiration then collaborated with the company’s principals to develop and execute completely original and proprietary designs.

This special collection is true to Studio Van den Akker’s larger mission to fill a distinct need in the design community for a modern, yet warm, line of furniture and accessories that references the past but is anchored in today’s lifestyle. Rob and Sean have always admired Seguso’s aesthetic and have long respected the company’s dedication to technique. Creating this collection provided an incredible opportunity to combine their vision of modern design with the timeless heritage of Italian craftsmanship.
