In 2001, with 15 years of carefully acquired know-how and expertise, Bruno Van Meenen founded his company for designing and manufacturing architectural lighting. At the time, the Trizo21 objective stood for personally designed and developed light fittings of high quality. We wanted to make fittings that were modest and perfectionist with an optimistic twist. Trizo21 believes architectural lighting should be pure and stripped of unnecessary frills.
The Austere collection is a collaboration with Architect Hans Verstuyft ‘Austere’ can mean sleek, linear and/or stripped of excess. And also slender and tranquil just like an ethereal silhouette. It can’t get purer than this. Complete coverage and absolutely discrete. This design from lighting designer Hans Verstuyft won the Henry van de Velde award in 2015. The AUSTERE is gracious, clearly practical. Its beam of light is like a Chinese lantern, a small and simple lamp that feels natural in any location.
