About Stout

Stylish lighting concepts and special lamps

ABOUT STOUT | For exclusive, handmade design lighting, for almost 35 years

Lamps with surprising, refreshing and innovative design. With this mission, Hans Stout retreated to his attic in 1988, where he laid the foundation for Stout Lighting. Big dreams mean even more when shared and realized with a partner. After all, together you get further than alone. As such, Hans joined forces with his brother Sander after a year.

Soon the Stout brothers achieved their first success with the successful T-line. With these Light Architects as the driving force, Stout Lighting grew into a family business with a special range of lamps thanks to our varied collection of exclusive, handmade design lighting.

We are ready for you with free advice and put together a suitable lighting plan for every interior. Stylish lighting concepts, tailored to you.


Exclusive, handmade design lighting, for almost 35 years

We have been perfecting the art of exclusive design lighting for almost 35 years. For us, this means so much more than burning light. Our lighting brings feeling and sets the mood in your interior. We work with carefully selected materials, such as ceramics from Italy or metals like brass and stainless steel from our own soil. This makes our lamps last for generations. Stout lamps are versatile. They are worldly and elegant. Artistic and reliable. Exclusive and functional.

Design and functionality, seamlessly integrated

For us, lighting is like a diptych in which design and functionality cleverly come together. Our lighting brings feeling and atmosphere to your interior. And it is also practical.

Take, for example, our Castle Fusion, the design of this exceptional pendant lamp is a source of warm, atmospheric lighting thanks to the candles that are mounted in a playful way. The bright, functional lighting at the bottom of the Castle Fusion provides useful light on the table. Form and function, hand in hand.

But functionality goes beyond that. Functionality also means using modern technology in our designs. For example, we develop a lighting technique that has the sustainable effect of LED and the warm atmosphere of the classic light bulb. By staying ahead of trends in this way and smartly implementing developments in the field of lighting in our designs, we have a suitable and stylish lighting concept for every interior, every style, every question.

Carefully selected materials

One of our main sources of inspiration is the rich Italian culture. Hans once said about this: “When it comes to design, Italy is simply the country. Italians are the artists of Europe”. This mindset is unchanged to this day and you can find influences of Italian design in various Stout lamps. The trips that Hans and Sander made to Italy in the early years have become a tradition and from time to time you will find us again in the south.

Looking for original materials, a special factory or a special workshop. This is how we found beautiful Italian ceramics and a partner in Italy who can translate the material into our designs, so that you can enjoy it in collections such as Daytona, Luna, Maxime, Milano and Fine de Claires. We find other materials closer by, such as high-quality metal from the Netherlands that we process in our workshop in Loenen for our collections such as the Candle Fusion, Castle Fusion and The Hoxton.

Always personal and reliable service

Good lighting needs attention. The same goes for a suitable lighting plan. It is an investment and we are here to ensure that this investment pays off as well as possible. That you get exactly what you are looking for. As far as we are concerned, that starts and ends with service. Personal service. With us you always know who you get on the phone, who you can go to for advice and who produce the lighting in the workshop by name. This also means that our doors, even years after a purchase, are open for you when you need us. We are here for you.

A passion that has been in the Stout family for generations. We believe in small-scale numbers and thanks to this careful, artisanal way of working, we guarantee the quality of every product with confidence.
