Iconic lighting brand Artemide with Issey Miyakes’ design lab have arrived at the creation of a revolutionary range of lighting that beautifully encapsulates Miyake’s characteristically innovative approach to materials and design. Issey Miyake’s artistic vision, applied via a new three-dimensional mathematical process, fuses the Japanese tradition of light with Miyake’s unique ability to translate tradition into modernity – a landscape from which arrange of freestanding, table and hanging lights has been born. The essence of the range is the astonishing fabric derived from 100 percent recycled materials – a re-treated fibre made using PET bottles that diffuse light in the most intriguing ways. In a further ecological design consideration – the bottles are processed using an innovative technology that reduces both energy consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 40% in comparison to the production of new materials. Beautiful intelligent design !
