Architect Luc Merx founded his practice Gagat International in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in 1999.
A grant from the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture (Fonds BKVB) provided him with the opportunity to study the parallels between late baroque architecture in Southern Germany and the influence of computers on modern architecture. This resulted in the design and research project 'Rococo Relevance' and in 2007 Luc designed his first piece for MGX, the Damned.MGX chandelier, which is based on this theme.
In addition to the Damned.MGX chandelier, Luc Merx also designed the Stucco.MGX wall lighting system which was launched in 2009 as part of MGX's E-volution collection.
Luc has taught at the Universities of Technology in Eindhoven and Darmstadt. He is currently a professor at the University of Technology in Kaiserslautern and is Head of the Maastricht Building Academy.
