A Sculptural, Architectural Approach to Designer Lighting
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. With a view to going beyond simply decorative lighting, Articolo aims to creating pieces that function as true sculpture.
Based in Melbourne and New York, Articolo is a truly international designer lighting company, interpreting European design influences through a modern 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.
Articolo’s artful approach results in pieces that harmonise with the aesthetics of each space, ensuring continuity between spaces and the interior as a whole. The studio’s lighting designs have featured in some of the world’s finest interiors, from luxury hotels 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.
Inspired by a passion for the natural variations in mouth blown glass, Green established Articolo in 2012 as the next phase in her successful global design career.
Inspired by her singular vision to focus on and cultivate ‘the art of light’, the Articolo collection reflects Green’s fascination with the shadow play of light and the inherent soul that is revealed within each individually mouth-blown piece. Nicci’s vision is ever evolving, working alongside a global network of creators to craft pieces with true artisanal materiality, delivering designer lighting that’s high end in its design language as well as its production and quality.
With a rapidly growing collection as well as bespoke commissions, Green’s sophisticated and elegant designs are specified globally in leading luxury hotels, hospitality venues and high-end private residential projects.

How black is Articolo Black?
Articolo Black is a custom colour designed by Articolo. It has a small amount of graphite in it which creates warmth, movement and interest. We feel the colour compliments the shadow play of the Articolo fittings in preference to a flat solid black. In some lights it can read slightly grey and other light black. It is a matte textured finish.
