“Jewellers of light” Clarissa Dorn and Roel Haagmans recently celebrated the opening of their flagship Windfall Contemporary Crystal showroom in Munich, with guests from over 11 different countries. The showroom serves as the global headquarters for Windfall, as well as display its full collections.

Clarissa Dorn and Roel Haagmans pursued their love for light and crystal when they started Windfall Contemporary Crystal Lighting in Munich in the summer of 2004, in order to pave new ways in crystal luminaire design. Roel had made his name on the international scene with his designs for classical and oriental chandeliers for the Sultan Quaboos Mosque in Muscat and the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Clarissa brought long-term experience in art, interior design and organization with her.

Their first joint design, Scarlett – a crystal cascade, encased by a transparent, colourful organza cylinder shade – has enjoyed great success.

Shortly after, their second design, the Hellbob, was developed, the idea for a new lighting concept for crystal chandeliers, a custom-made crystal sphere using the Windfall Curler technique. Floating crystal objects are illuminated by downlights, which can unfurl unimagined emotions through the spatial illuminating effects that result.

Next came Balance, a light that can be consolidated perfectly to the most diverse chandelier arrangements, with the floating dispersion of light further refined.

Over the years. Windfall has worked with various well-known designers on architects on projects worldwide – including KCA International, David Chipperfield, YOO Architects/Philippe Starck, Bost Design, Gallery Dilmos, Jean Philippe Neul, Paul Steelman Design, Warren Wong Design and UN Studio.
