Brittain studied industrial design at Parsons, earned a BA in philosophy from New York University, followed by an architecture degree from The Architectural Association in London. Her work experience is as varied as her education. Brittain was a Lead Designer at an architecture firm, later shifting focus to design luxury door hardware. She is currently Design Director at Lindsey Adelman Studio while also building her own practice in product design.

Since 2011, Brittain has been focusing primarily on high-end lighting and prioritises manufacturing locally. Her sculptural lights posses a jewellery-like quality, with sophisticated elegance and balanced geometry. Her collections are crafted from materials such as bronze, brass, hand-blown glass and marble, with forms inspired by the crystalline structures found in nature. “The growth of crystals are entirely compelling to me – growth in a non-living thing is absolutely amazing! Moreover, it’s fascinating the way each mineral has its specific growth structure which is consistent, yet depending on environmental variables each specimen is unique.”
