Ethereal Lighting from the Netherlands

Izabella Simmons September 17, 2012

First spotted (and admired) on Vosges Paris (a Remodelista Design Newsstand blog): organic lighting designed by a dream team of artists.

Ay Lin Heinen, Neslon Sepulveda, and Mark Eden Schooley are the masterminds behind the lighting label Ay Illuminate. Based in the Netherlands, with production in both Asia and Africa, the lamps are designed by local artisans and made from renewable materials such as bamboo, sisal nets, and handwoven cotton. "We believe that local handicraft carries the genes of cultural identity," the designers say. For more information, visit Ay Illuminate.
