Expressing creativity, design and functionality is the very essence of Luminaire Authentik. Inspired by Scandinavian aesthetics, our lamps are drawn, designed and made in our Cowansville atelier, in Quebec. Our passionate team brings their undeniable know-how to merge character, singularity and style beautifully in each creation.
Our creative universe is nestled in the heart of the Eastern Townships. Right next to our workshop and offices, you will find a material library and a lovely showroom where designers can host their clients for work sessions.

A WORD FROM THE WOMAN THAT STARTED IT ALL
« How do we create lamps that are authentic as well as exclusive? We make each one by hand, in polar opposition to the usual production line model. As an entrepreneur, authenticity starts with genuine decisions, such as opening a workshop in the middle of the countryside, turning a former schoolhouse into a creative space, and then proceeding to build headquarters that can house growing ambitions. Our authenticity also shines through our desire to collaborate with both designers from all corners of the world, as well as with design-savvy individuals. We honour the spark, that drive to work with passion, and to create with ambition, every day. »
