Articolo is a design studio that reveres the ephemeral nature of light through a commitment to artisanal craft and quality workmanship.

With showrooms in Melbourne Australia and New York City, with Los Angeles to follow, the studio reflects founder and creative director Nicci Kavals’ 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.

Articolo Studio and Showroom


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.

We recently captured their spirit and their dedication in our debut short film, Artisanally Articolo.
