McKenzie & Keim is a lighting design studio based in Chicago, Illinois. We craft high quality light fixtures suitable for residential and commercial interiors. Our products merge LED technology with classic materials like brass and glass to create timeless, efficient luminaries. Each light features minimal lines and elegant transitions between components, all clad in a variety of standard finishes. Taylor McKenzie-Veal and Brendan Keim launched their studio with the aim of establishing a new standard in contemporary specialty lighting. They met in graduate school while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design. After receiving the MFA's in Furniture Design, they began their own design practices, became design educators, and worked for renowned designers like Linsdey Adelman, Patrick Townsend, and Clodagh. Now they bring together their creative experience and talent with meticulously detailed, modern light fixtures. Each fixture is made in collaboration with local craftspeople. Every lamp is made to order and hand assembled in McKenzie & Keim's studio.
