About

Articolo Lighting

Australian design studio Articolo has explored ‘the art of light’ through handcrafted artisanal lighting pieces since 2012.

Founded by celebrated designer Nicci Green, Articolo’s lighting collections explore the unique individuality and subtle differences intrinsic to mouth blown glass coupled with a timeless design aesthetic. When lit, these sophisticated forms cast unique patterns and movements that reflect an unparalleled shadow play of light unique to Articolo.

Based in Melbourne, Articolo interprets its European design influences through an Australian sensibility, honestly and playfully uniting craftsmanship and materiality.

“When something is made by hand, you can feel the soul that went into it” says Green.

The studio’s lighting designs have featured in some of the world’s finest interiors – from luxury hotel brands to acclaimed restaurants, member clubs and high-end residential projects.

With a continued commitment to work with the best local and global artisans, Articolo reflects Green’s ongoing passion for capturing the textural spirit of light through timeless forms, shared with an international design audience.

Nicci Green – Creative Director

An influential design force for more than 25 years, Nicci Green has specialised in artisanal craftsmanship since 2004.

Founded in 2012, her design studio Articolo has produced more than 20 lighting collections and features in some of the finest interior spaces around the world, reflecting the studio’s mission to cultivate ‘the art of light’.

Nicci’s designs are characterised by the timeless elegance of mouth blown glass, capturing the unique shadow play of light thrown by mouth blown glass with soulful sophistication.

It was her passion for the natural variations in mouth blown glass that inspired Nicci to found Articolo after an established global career as a stylist and designer.

Nicci continues to be fascinated by the movement and patterns that are intrinsic to mouth blown glass, revealing the unique soul inherent in each individual piece of Articolo’s lighting collection.

Nicci’s designs are featured in luxury hotels, hospitality venues and high-end residential projects worldwide.

For clear glass and coloured glass, wipe gently with a soft, clean cloth moistened with warm water; ‘Isocol’ rubbing alcohol may alternatively be used.
