Bec Brittain studied industrial design at Parsons, earned a BA in philosophy from New York University, and received an architecture degree from The Architectural Association in London. Bec draws from these different modes of thinking and making to create relationships between normally disparate elements. Her aim is to create work eliciting both an immediate sensual reaction, and a more gradual appreciation of a larger aesthetic concept. She founded her product design studio, Bec Brittain, LLC, in 2011. Located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the studio currently focuses on lighting design and custom projects.
