DARK, you love it or you hate it!

DARK was founded in 2000 by Marnick Smessaert. Dark is a project driven by passion.

Passion for design, innovation and lighting. And it’s a passion that has paid off.


The products by DARK are sold in over 43 countries and DARK has landed

81 International design awards to date. DARK works with numerous external

designers from Belgium and abroad. Its think tank, offices and production

facilities are based in Belgium. DARK is anything but grey. You love it or hate it!

And its army of converts only continues to grow. The proof is in the many

national and international references and widespread acknowledgement

as the leading trendsetter in lighting.


DARK is an incubator for creative ideas that have given rise to original light fixtures,

chandeliers, sculptures and lighting concepts. DARK is about experimenting.

By combining colors, incorporating precious materials, adding elegant details

and focusing on pure forms.


DARK has created an original, innovative range that can be applied in countless interiors.

In a nutshell, architectural vision with healthy dose of mischief.
