Welcome to www.jacobdebaan.com. This website is an invitation to get to know my work as a designer and as an art director. I am passionate about art and design. My background in business, art and design allows me to quickly get to the heart of the matter. This site offers an insight in my approach. I am passionate about light and lighting. Over the years I designed many lighting fixtures, often for clients, but also independently. All lights are developed out of a fascination for the experience of light and sustainability. I moved to Istanbul in the end of 2013, less than one year later I present SAFIR (sapphire) is my latest design and it is highly inspired by Istanbul.
