IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE / Lighting family

IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE by Issey Miyake and Reality Lab. is a collection of floor, table and hanging lights. The project revolves around a fabric derived from entirely recycled materials, diffusing light in extremely interesting ways; it is a re-treated fiber made using PET bottles. The bottles are processed using an innovative technology that reduces both energy consumption and CO₂ emissions up to 40% when compared to the production of new materials. Issey Miyake’s artistic vision combines the Japanese tradition of light with Miyake’s unique ability to translate tradition into modernity. Artemide animates these sustainable shapes using LEDs.

The quality of light from the lamp is outstanding, which is due not least to the elegant, entirely recyclable materials used in its construction, obtained from PET bottles. The body, made from the fibers of the bottles, appears fragile but is in fact highly robust, while the flexible construction means that the shape can be changed freely. The company has come up with a very traditional Japanese lamp that is nevertheless highly modern, something that deserves an iF gold award!
