– We believe that local handicraft carries the genes of cultural identity –
We have a collaboration with Ay illuminate. A lighting brand based in the Netherlands which produces it’s own lighting in several countries in Asia and Africa.
The principal designers, Ay Lin and Nelson Sepulveda, work with artisans, many in challenged or developing countries, to create products unique to their brand. They are inspired by both nature and different cultures which is reflected in their use of organic shapes and natural (waste) materials combined with local handicraft expertise. The character, heart and passion they have for authenticity is evident in their designs, which makes their products perfect for the Global Lighting Ethos Collection.
To get inspired the design team is working together with the local hand crafters. This allows them to get to know the natural materials available and the expertise of the handcraft. Therefore, is a good way to discover the best solution to catch the unique beauty of different techniques.
