How were the industrial lamps invented? Before the fluorescent light was introduced in bulk, many factories, warehouses and workshops were illuminated by heavy hanging lamps suspended from chains or thick steel wires.

Nostalgic industrial lamps



In the 1980s, a large part of these industrial buildings were converted into studios and residential accommodation. Characteristic of these buildings are the rooms with high windows, beams made of wood or steel, with concrete or wooden floors. The original industrial lights were often used to keep the atmosphere intact.

This “loft style” has been so successful that in recent years many new houses have been built and renovation projects have been designed. Inspired by this industry look Tierlan Tijn has developed a completely new lighting line.

Available in different sizes and designs

In 1994, Tierlan Tijn started working on a small scale in a small shed in the small village of Rijsbergen in the south of the Netherlands. By experimenting with molds for plaster and concrete ornaments, and with the help of her family and her friends, Paula Gelissen and her sons Michel and Martijn, discovered a market for their handmade products.

Gradually, the two brothers began to focus more and more on the development and manufacture of this distinctive lighting.
Characteristic for the Tierlan Tijn style is the handcraft with authentic rough and robust materials.

New collections arose with the use of coarse natural materials; an extensive range of interior lighting and a wide selection of outdoor lamps.
