Margit Wittig Lighting

German

Sculptor, painter and designer Margit Wittig has over the years gained a following of interior designers and collectors who are drawn to her modern bespoke lighting, screens and occasional furniture. Among them is noted British interior designer and founder of Firmdale Hotels, Kit Kemp, who once described Wittig’s versatile pieces as “curious, intriguing, classical yet lyrical.” 

Born in Germany, Wittig grew up in creative surroundings. Her mother, an artist, encouraged her to paint watercolors of their garden and they would create festive Christmas ornaments using old wax candles.

Although she initially trained as a physiotherapist, Wittig quit the profession when she moved to the United States in 1997. She later left the U.S. for London, then a mother of two young children, and decided to pursue an art career. 

Wittig studied sculpture and stone carving at the Art Academy in London and studied metalwork at Central Saint Martins. For her sculptures, Wittig drew inspiration from her years of observing the human form in her role as a physiotherapist. She also cites sculptors Constantin Brancusi and Alberto Giacometti as notable influences. 

Wittig found herself incorporating her sculptures — as well as other objects she made in resin and glass — into functional and artistic table lamps. Although it began as a hobby, Wittig’s handcrafted decorative lighting soon caught the attention of London’s interior designers.  

In 2016, Wittig officially established her studio. Over the past several years, she has expanded her lighting collection to include wall sconces and chandeliers. Wittig has also branched out into designing and making other furniture such as sculptural candlesticks, mirrors and her Manhattan Cube, which is technically a side table that can double as a stool

Wittig’s table lamps and candlesticks are included in the décor of Firmdale Hotels’ The Whitby in New York and Ham Yard Hotel in London. Her pieces have also been featured in several international publications such as The English Home, House and Garden, ELLE Decoration, the New York Times and Architectural Digest, to name a few.
