Windfall is known worldwide as the dynamic contemporary chandelier brand, which is re-defining the nature of crystal chandeliers. Dutch born Roel Haagmans and German Clarissa Dorn were already experienced chandelier designers for other companies when they set up Windfall together in Munich in 2004, to explore the contemporary potential of crystal chandeliers.
Their knowledge of technical issues is considered not only world-class, but also probably unmatched, and with Windfall they have developed an aesthetic, which has brought them to the attention of a deeply fashionable Design crowd.
"Windfall have entirely re-invented how crystal can be used, stripping back the old idea of an overburdened chandelier to it’s essentials, and bringing a fresh, airy, contemporary quality to classic materials".
Windfall also supplies chandeliers for some of the world’s top luxury brands such as Roberto Cavalli, Cartier, and Mont Blanc.
Since starting the company in 2004, Windfall has collaborated with many leading architects and Light planners, including Italo Rota Architects (Milan) David Chipperfield Arch. (London), YOO Architects (London), Jestico & Whiles, Scott Brownrigg (London), Jean Philippe Nuel (Paris), KCA International (London), Reflexion (Zurich), HBA (Los Angeles), Bost Design (Berlin), Davis & Baron (London), Spence, Harris & Hogan (London), Plajer & Franz (Berlin), Gallery Dilmos (Milan), Paul Steelman Design (Las Vegas) and many more.
