Will and Susan Brinson of Studio Brinson:
You could call them the dream team of interiors & food photography, the husband and wife team has been working together off and on since high school and has built a most impressive client roster along with a stellar Instagram following. (If you’re not following yet, GO THERE NOW). The Brinson’s are no strangers to Modenus events and we were thrilled they agreed to talk about trade show photography as this is a topic that is sorely in need of a few Tips & Tricks.
THG®-Paris, the leading French atelier for the luxury bath, has an extensive collection of elegant bathroom fittings with a wide choice of styles and an unparalleled level of exquisite craftsmanship paired with high style. THG’s artisans tool, cast, mold and finish each product using celebrated techniques passed down through generations.
Befitting a brand of their stature, THG aligns itself with luxury brands whose renown in their field of product design is equal to THG’s. Lalique, Bernardaud, Daum and Baccarat, as well as major name designers, Jean-Claude Delépine, Pierre-Yves Rochon, Alberto Pinto, Chantal Thomass and Jamie Drake have all collaborated with THG on collections which reflect a combined aesthetic and knowledge of creating stunningly beautiful objects.
Ronbow has been crafting luxury bathroom furniture for nearly 15 years and has recently collaborated on 11 new collections designed by nine of Europe’s best-known product and industrial designers, known for their work with brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vuitton and Apple. The resulting collections, known collectively as the Signature Series, represent reciprocal investment and trust: each of the designers entrusted Ronbow to execute their designs precisely, and Ronbow chose each designer because their aesthetic matched closely with the brand’s.
The pieces are not only beautiful but they include multiple options and configurations, with convenient and smart innovations such as LED touch sensitive mirrors, USB ports and plug outlets incorporated into the product, as well as unique material combinations.
Corbett Lighting is renowned for its ability to reflect the latest trends in fashion, architecture and design and use those influences to create luxury lighting for hospitality projects and hi-end residential lifestyles. Corbett redefines decorative lighting by bringing both whimsical and elegant touches to its fixtures, with lavish adornments of natural agate, mother of pearl, bone china, Venetian glass and alabaster stone.
Hudson Valley Lighting® draws upon traditional and vintage design influences to create lighting products relevant for today’s contemporary, formal and relaxed interiors. Their timeless designs reflect a spectacular combination of reverence for historical 20th century lighting design and modern sensibilities with luxurious materials ranging from multi-tiered polished glass rods, frosted acrylic, handcrafted glass, cast metalwork to beveled glass mirrors.
Troy Lighting, established in 1963, is known for its “sophisticated casual” aesthetic, original hand-forged ironwork and solid brass fixtures. Their rich catalog of products can meet the broadest project needs in terms of quality, design and value. Many of Troy’s fixtures lean toward a retro vibe and fit equally well in residential, retail, office and hospitality specifications. Troy combines unique elements such as hand-spun steel, cast aluminum, antique mirrored crystal, hand-carved wood and fresh water pearl to create distinctive products that are original works of art.
