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.


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 after a successful global career as a stylist and designer.

Inspired by Green’s singular vision to focus on and cultivate ‘the art of light’ the Articolo collection reflects the designers fascination with the movement and patterns captured by the unique shadow play of light thrown by mouth blown glass and the inherent soul that is revealed within each individual piece of the collection.

With over 20 timeless collections featuring Green’s sophisticated and elegant designs Articolo lighting has featured worldwide in leading luxury hotels hospitality venues and high-end 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.
