How It All Started…
My name is Dean Snell and I am the founder of Pipe Art and the lead designer and creator of all the work that you see. In summer 2014 I was doing my day job installing a gas inlet system at a luxury apartment block in London’s Hoxton square, whilst doing so I made conversation with the architect on site and he wanted a 24 lamp pipe light feature designed priced and installed in the entrance hall. I approached the job in hand with caution as it was the first of its type for me. Consulting a friend, an electrician with thirty years in the trade, for advice and contacting another close contact to purchase the materials required at a great trade price, I confidently took on the job in hand. See our showcase page for some pictures of the completed project.
From that day my mind worked differently, so much can be made out of steel pipework. Fifteen years installing screwed steel gas pipes all over the UK: I know what can and cannot be done.
That same day was scribbling down designs of desk lamps, knowing that once this installation was complete I wasn’t going to stop there, and so I didn’t. I managed to get in contact with some unique shops In London to introduce my Pipe Art Lamps and am now a proud supplier to Decorum at Boxpark Shopping Mall in Shoreditch and Planet Bazaar at The Stables Market in Camden. Any light fitting style, size, shape and colour, if a customer requires a unique industrial or steampunk look, adding another dimension to their home office or shop, Pipe Art lights are here.
Pipe Art for sure doesn’t intend on just producing lights. Pipe Art is an industrial style steel pipe furnishing company.

There is so much more to come from Pipe Art! Many other furnishings are on the drawing board to be made, but more exciting for Pipe Art is our forthcoming home design software, where you the customer can design your own furnishings from home with a quick drag and a click. Colour, shape, size is all at a fingers click. Whether it’s contemporary, shabby chic, rustic, futuristc, urban, retro, steampunk or industrial, you become the designer. At Pipe Art, professional assistance in installation is advisable, and always an option. Professional advise is always accessible.
The uniqueness of Pipe Art features is endless. We don’t like making the same as much as we do different, handcrafted as they are, even two lamps with the same fittings and sized pipe will not be exactly the same (if we can help it!). Customer requirements are always what comes first so if you want two of the same though that is what you will get. Customers design input excites us at Pipe art, to see what wonders you come up with, your personal requirements is what we are about, bespoke is what we do best. With models to see pre made online for you to buy as they are, from models online for you to see to inspire you to design your own.
We want to light up people’s lives everywhere. That’s why now, if you are a retail outlet of quality, unique industrial furniture and lighting, you can apply for a trade account with Pipe Art.
Pipe Art is unique and we’re very proud of that.
