Deknudt Lighting is a family owned business, since 1956 and has always been producing in Belgium. Armand Deknudt started up the production of lighting fittings, mainly with brass and marble. His wife, Brita Monbaliu, looked for the manufacturing of assorted lamp shades.
The production was gradually well integrated with own facilities for driving, welding, polishing, bronze and lacquering. In search of a controlled exceptional quality, Deknudt Lighting became rather integrated.
In 1992, the business was continued by daughter Lucia Deknudt, together with her husband Francis Clarysse. New international markets were approached. Due to the know-how developped in the finishing of brass, also other companies, in the field of lighting and others, made use of the techniques of Deknudt Lighting.
