Equinox Design started off in the year 2000 as a collaboration between siblings – a San Francisco, CA based interior decorator and her brother living in the Philippines, who had a rattan furniture exporting company. Noticing a lack of lighting design manufactured locally, they decided to make this their niche. In that auspicious first year, Equinox Design was able to capture the interest of a large American furniture company. From then on, Equinox Design products have been gracing homes and enhancing hotels across the United States and other parts of the world. Equinox Design specializes in lighting design, specifically table and floor lamps. The material of choice is wood, sustainably grown. Other materials are rattan and resin. Lamp shades are made from indigenous materials woven and handcrafted by local artisans who keep the traditional art alive. Trays and boxes have also been added to the product line.
