Industrial designer Robbie Llewellyn was working in a high-end showroom of antique lighting when he met Adam Yeats in 2013. Learning that Yeats owned a small metal fabrication plant, Llewellyn showed him some of his designs. From those designs and their shared values grew a brand and a collaboration that celebrate the best of British design.
Bert Frank's collection of designer lights is the result of Llewellyn's fascination with mid-century and rustic industrial design in lighting intersecting with Yeats' practicality and expertise with materials. Together, the two men are inspired by a "desire for beautiful objects and a passion for life-enhancing design." As a result, Bert Frank's creations are defined by clean lines and luxe materials.
Another defining feature of Bert Frank luminaires comes from the founders' shared love of country, which manifested itself in a dedication to remaining 100% British. Bert Frank's lights are a testament to the history and quality of British craftsmanship, with all metalwork done in Bert Frank's Birmingham factory and the shades of glass, ceramic, and bone china all similarly British-made.
Bert Frank's remarkable collection of designer lights manage to combine mid-century and industrial influences seamlessly, using the finest materials and artisanal handcrafting to create a feel that is both classic and contemporary, making each luminaire a timeless expression of beauty.
