AN ARCHITECTURAL APPROACH TO INTERIOR LIGHTING
Discover the art of light. Articolo is a lighting design studio that celebrates the art of light through a commitment to artisanal craft and quality workmanship. With showrooms in both Melbourne and New York City, the studio’s work expresses a passion for the textural spirit of light; producing works that are internationally regarded for a contemporary yet enduring aesthetic and the luxurious pairing of materials.
Celebrated for smooth, contemporary lines and highly refined and layered detailing, Articolo creates lighting that embodies a timeless design aesthetic. Crafted by skilled artisans working in mouth-blown glass, fine metal and natural materials, each piece offers its own unique individuality and subtle differences, casting unique patterns and movements when lit in an unparalleled shadow play of light.
FEEL THE SOUL IN OUR HANDCRAFTED LIGHTING
Each Articolo piece is the result of many skilled hands working in tandem. From the famed glassblowers of Murano to Australian metalworkers and Italian jewellers, our lights are only possible with the work of artisans from around the globe. Eschewing impersonal mass manufacturing techniques means that each piece is truly unique, throwing its own one-of-a-kind pattern and participating in the shadow play of light in a way unlike any other.
The choice to use a global network of artisans was deliberate – it imbues each piece with its own soul and its own identity. Each subtle detail – from the minute bubbles in the mouth-blown glass to the subtle variations in colour on a fine brass fixture – exists for a reason. These small marks symbolise the labour that goes into each of the products in our architectural lighting collection, acting as a living document of the light’s creation.

The use of luxurious paired materials like linished brass, marble, linen, waxed cotton and Japanese porcelain creates an effect more suited to artwork than purely functional lighting. Sculptural in appearance and feel, Articolo’s wall sconces, lamps and pendants have graced the interiors of some of the world’s finest homes, restaurants and hotels, reflecting and enhancing the feelings of comfort and sophistication that these spaces create.
The Articolo collection is available for viewing at our Melbourne and New York studios – we invite our Australian customers to make an appointment at our Melbourne studio on +61 (3) 8595 8011 or via email at [email protected] or at our New York showroom on +1 (646) 971 0065 or [email protected]. We sincerely look forward to sharing our exploration of the art of light.
