Beau McClellan, winner of four Red Dot Design Awards, Light of the Year Award, nominee for the prestigious DesignPreis and recently awarded the Guinness Record for designing the ‘Largest Chandelier in the World’, was born in 1965 in Edinburgh in Scotland and now lives with his wife and son in Portugal. He made his debut as a sculptor and artist blacksmith, but has proved his incredible creative diversity in a surprisingly large range of artistic projects in the world of arts, from music to theatre and even advertising.
Beau’s talent has evolved over the years, his recent endeavors emerging deeply into light sculpture and design. Through his team at Beau McClellan Design, he has developed exclusive one-off pieces - for many discerning clients, celebrities, international sports personalities and Royalty - mastering the art of forged steel sculpture and high-end light installations of all proportions, gracing the world with beautiful and meaningful lighting designs.
Beau is currently working on several projects in the Middle East, Europe & Asia Pacific, including individual ‘Signature’ art commissions for Hotels, Corporations, Government Buildings and a selection of bespoke clients. Beau is also part of an internationally renowned group of companies that have designed a cutting-edge new ‘Green’ lighting solution for retail conglomerates around the world.
