Esther came to Retrouvius after a career as a producer in advertising, working on large campaigns for companies such as Adidas. She studied European Studies at the University of Amsterdam, and did English, Spanish, economics and communication sciences.
After a move to London from Amsterdam and now with two kids, she joined the Retrouvius team.
With a golden sparkle, only to be matched by Esther herself, these elegant mirrored pendants give off a beautiful elegant and functional light.
“I would display them in a cluster, they are affordable to do so too” - they are both versatile and functional, easily installed as a wall uplighter or displayed as a single beautiful jewel.
The lights have been used in various projects at Retrouvius. One example is over a kitchen island where they light up the whole of the island and they add a lovely sparkle to the kitchen.
The lights originally were designed to illuminate shop windows in the 1930s. The scalloped patten on the shade accentuates the light and bounces it off the mirrored glass inside. Different shapes of shade were used to illuminate each and every part of the shop window
