Hind Rabii creates unique, customisable lighting solutions from her provincial studio in Liege, Belgium

It was while Hind Rabii was researching lighting design for her own home that she decided to commission some pieces that met her discerning standards of excellence. In 1997, the brand that bears her name was established to create top-of-the-range products made in Belgium. Alongside her husband Michel Orban, Rabii, who holds a degree in industrial engineering, began experimenting with lighting collections that were recognisable by their pure and simple forms.

The team experiments in the woodwork studio, metal workshop and a workshop entirely dedicated to the production of lampshades, all of which are located on their property in provincial Belgium. Working alongside carpenters and assemblers, Rabii relies on the savoir-faire of the craftsmen to preserve the high quality of her designs. Reflecting the numerous cultural elements of Belgium, her designs also capture a signature sensitivity and femininity that makes them unique.

By offering lighting solutions that are totally customisable, Rabii has gained much of a following from the hotel and hospitality industry. The 3x3x3 collection was a collaboration with designer Luc Vincent and comes in three forms, three materials and three colours, allowing products to be mixed depending on the interior of the project.  Designs such as Les Baladeuses with its metal wire structure allow the lamps to be suspended, standing or even hung on a wall, making them elements of decoration themselves.
