Zenza was established in 1994, by Dutch designer Karin, who travelled to Egypt in search of product for her new home accessories company Zenza. During her trip, she not only found some lovely products, but also met her future husband and business partner Hussein.
Together, and now with the help of their daughter Yasmina, they have successfully developed this fabulous brand, in both a creative and commercial sense.
It now consists of an extensive and intricately designed and executed range of decorative lighting as well as furniture, accessories and textiles. Their handmade products are unique, each object with its own soul and distinctive character and personality.
Zenza has become particularly well known worldwide for its innovative and contemporary twists on traditional lamps. Silver plated copper with delicate filigree patterns have become the signature of their lighting collection.
They focus on maintaining traditional craftsmanship alive in a world where mass production threatens its existence and they insist on working according to ethical standards. Depending on the material, the collection is hand-crafted in Egypt or India by specialist craftspeople.
