Brooks Zeitlin Design is a contemporary art and design studio that produces abstract sculpture and lighting fixtures of unique character and extraordinary quality. Composed of metal, wood and kiln formed art glass, the work reflects the modern aesthetic and architectural background of its designer, Brooks Zeitlin.
Brooks hasn't stopped building since he got his first tool box at age three. At sixteen, the two-story geodesic dome he designed, built and lived in, in his family's back yard attracted the attention not only of the Los Angeles Times, but of renowned architect/philosopher Buckminster Fuller. For the next three decades, Brooks focused his energies on designing and building projects ranging from houses to functional sculpture to fine custom furniture.
In the mid 90's, Brooks' focus turned to designing and fabricating lighting fixtures. His love of modern architectural forms and structures, combined with his metal, glass and woodworking skills, is the driving force behind his distinctive and elegant designs. His lighting fixtures have been installed in homes and businesses throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East, including an installation which hangs in the flagship store of Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Brooks' current work includes abstract and light sculpture in wood, glass and metal.
