Fusion of light and art

in-es.artdesign, founded in 2003 by artist and designer Luciano M. Mazzilli, is an Italian lighting design company that merges art with design know-how. The name in-es stands for interior and exterior (In-es.artdesign produces lighting for indoors and outdoors). The lights produced by the company are at once functional, artistic, tactile and metaphorical.

The Luna collection is made in nebulite, a blend of resin and fibre that replicates the crater-like and textured surface of the moon. The Matt collection, which won the German Design Award and the Iconic Award, comes in three finishes – cement, nebula and blackboard. The first finish uses a cement-like varnish; the second displays an almost marble-like exterior, while the third has a blackboard finish, which can be written on and erased.

The be.pop collection, inspired by pop art, is made in Laprene, a material similar to rubber. The items in the collection are soft and colourful, with its signature piece, cacio&pepe, which is based on the famous Italian parmesan grater, able to be a pendant, table lamp, or wall lamp. The Trame collection, whose lampshades are made out of hand-knitted fabric covered in resin or vice versa, casts beautiful geometric shadows on the walls. The collections will be exhibited from 21-24 September 2017 in London at the Designjunction exhibition.
