ROYAL ENDORSEMENT FOR OPENING OF BRAND VAN EGMOND’S FIRST MONO-BRAND BOUTIQUE
Last month, the grand opening of the Brand van Egmond boutique in Malaysia took place. Her Royal Highness Queen Tuanku Sultana of Pahang officiated the grand opening, joined by her son HRH Prince Tengku Abdul Fahd Mu’adzam and many more guests from Malaysia and the region at large. Through a life stream connection, the opening could be followed from every corner in the world.
The boutique allows for guests to be inspired by the depth of our collections, and at the same time receive advice on the wide-ranging possibilities. Brand van Egmond is unique in its capacity to customise, and translate personal wishes into handcrafted reality.
“For over a quarter of a century we have made lights for the most eclectic and international clientele you can imagine, ranging from Royals till Rappers. For us to move towards an exclusive Brand van Egmond boutique in the most diverse Asian nation I know, seems both logical as well as natural.”
William Brand, founder and designer Brand van Egmond
Lighting sculptures on display
For the Malaysian boutique several collections were handpicked. The by now famous ‘Hollywood’ collection, inspired by the trees William Brand encountered while travelling through Africa with his family, is also on display to experience. The grand ‘Diamonds from Amsterdam’ is another evocative piece, where “the jewellery making” is mixed with lighting. Even an example of the possibilities to customise is on display: a stunning romantic red rosed ‘Love you Love you Not ‘ object is showing some of the possibilities – and pleasure! – to offer tailer made lighting.
Malaysia has one of the most vibrant societies and economies of the region. Influenced by the very internationally focused citizens, authentic design firms have experienced a steady rise in enthusiastic followers. Although Malaysia is a diverse nation — of Malays, Chinese, Indians and of several religions — that span the beautiful peninsula and a slice of Borneo, its national culture is unified around several qualities, not least of which are valuing authenticity and a strong appreciation for craftsmanship. It is exactly for the appreciation of these qualities, that Brand van Egmond has opened its first mono-brand boutique in Malaysia.
Feel welcome to visit the Brand van Egmond boutique
The boutique is situated in Starhill Gallery, a pioneer in international luxury in Kuala Lumpur. Located next to Hermes and Rolex, the Brand van Egmond boutique is open every day of the week with professional staff on hand to offer advice.

Brand van Egmond History
For over a quarter of a century, the Brand van Egmond atelier, based in The Netherlands, has designed and produced iconic lighting sculptures for some of the most beautiful spaces in the world. The handcrafted lights evoke a strong emotional connection, and leave a long lasting impression. Luxury firms like Chopard, Louis Vuitton and the Four Seasons Hotel have all invited the atelier to create lighting for their spaces.
As all lighting is handcrafted, William Brand is frequently invited for commissioned work. Musuems around the world have curated his work for their permanent and temporary exhibitions.
