A sculpture of shadow and light
“When you see them, you can’t help feeling moved; when you understand them, you are full of wonder seeing a future we thought unreachable and couldn’t imagine this beautiful”.
Ernesto Gismondi introduces IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE’, conceived by Issey Miyake and his Reality Lab, and brought to life by Artemide.
“IN-EI” – Japanese for ” shadow, shadiness, nuance” .
The art of lighting has a conceptual and technological heritage at the Miyake Design Studio, dating back to 2010, when Issey Miyake and his research and development team called Reality Lab., presented “132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE”, an extremely ingenious process that provides a novel direction for innovative textiles technologies.
This new process was developed using amathematical program with 3-D geometric principals by Jun Mitani.
The project comes from the intersection of creativity and mathematics, resulting in clothing that can be folded flat and become 3D shapes, starting from a single piece of cloth. As the Reality Lab. explored “132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE”‘s potential in areas beyond clothing, a natural extension of the process was lighting products.
IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE was born from a collaboration with Artemide marrying their lighting expertise with the Lab.’s innovative approach to the material and design.
