Martin V. Rambusch and Edwin P. Rambusch

Rambusch Studios


Designing and making objects for over a century, our heritage is our dedication to the visual environment. 
Since its incorporation on December 17, 1898, the Rambusch Company has remained a small family business producing high-quality, custom-made objects and interiors to suit a wide range of clients. Over a century in existence, the Company has designed and executed more than 45,000 commissions in ecclesiastical arts, church interiors, stained glass, lighting, historic restoration, conservation, replication, art metal, and mosaic.

Rambusch offers the widest choice of architectural lighting solutions in the industry. Many manufacturers base a reputation on one type of fixture or sheer size of operation. We, on the other hand, provide light where needed, never detracting from or adversely affecting the architectural environment. This aim has held steady through four generations of the firm’s management. As an integrated family, Rambusch engineered fixtures work in combination to achieve what one single fixture type cannot. To light spaces and help designers best use our tools in creating uplifting environments, Rambusch provides far more than hardware. In addition to building fixtures, our business is built on communication, collaboration and shared knowledge. While there are other approaches, ours has served Rambusch clients well for over a century.

Martin V. Rambusch

Martin Rambusch, Chairman of the Board, Rambusch Decorating Company, was awarded his BFA from Tulane University, and his MS in Historic Preservation from the Columbia School of Architecture. Mr. Rambusch manages the Rambusch Studios and is project manager for the crafts-oriented activities of the Company, including conservation and preservation of church and public interiors. Martin works directly in the trades of stained glass, metal, stone, and wood, handling the creation of single artifacts, to full church interiors.

Edwin P. Rambusch

Edwin Rambusch is the fourth-generation president of one of the last remaining independent lighting companies in the United States, managing the firm’s custom and restoration lighting projects. Mr. Rambusch has been member of the IESNA since 1992, and received his Masters in Lighting Design from the Parsons School of Design/The New School in 1994. Currently he serves on the IESNA’s Progress Committee and chairs its Lighting for Houses of Worship Committee. He is an Adjunct Lecturer at Drew University, Madison, NJ, a member of the LIRC Steering Committee, board member of the Designer’s Lighting Forum and member of the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
