In-es.artdesign, lighting is a form of art
Mixing art and design is an art in and of itself—and one that is difficult to pull off. Italian artist and designer Oçilunam founded In-es.artdesign in 2003 to make it happen. His interior accessories radiate pure creativity with an irresistible allure, balancing an interplay of light and shadow with immaculate colour and material contrasts. These illuminating tones have garnered the designer international recognition, highlighting a unique mix of tension and clarity that pulls art and design into a beautifully coherent whole.
A distinctive trait of the firm is the careful attention to the details, and to the selection of the materials. Each product is made by In-es.artdesign’s factory in Rome (Italy) and goes through a strict quality control to guarantee its excellence.
Made in Italy.
Lighting collections: Luna, Matt, Trame e Be.pop and Out
The lights produced by the company are at once functional and artistic and tactile and metaphorical. They range from the atmospheric Luna collection (made out of Nebulite, a bespoke blend of resin and fiber that replicates the crater-like and textured surface of the moon and creates striking dappled effects), created in 2003, to the recent Matt collection that comes in three finishes – cement, nebula and blackboard – and that won the German Design Award in 2015 and 2016 and the Iconic Award in 2016. The first finish uses a cement varnish to great effect; the second flaunts an almost marble-like exterior again made out of Nebulite; the third uses a blackboard finish, which can be written on and then erased, exactly like a blackboard. The lavagna (or blackboard) range was designed to evoke childhood games or memories of first days at school, it is a light made for the man or woman that still marvels at the world. Another recent launch is the be.pop collection inspired by movements like pop art and bebop and composed of Laprene, a material similar to rubber. These pieces come in urban monochromatic colors with bright electrical wires. The signature piece of the collection, is the cacio&pepe, made in electric colors and based on the famed Italian parmesan grater. IT becomes a versatile piece that can be a pendant, a table lamp or wall lamp.The Trame range of lights, whose shades are made out of hand-knitted fabric that is immersed in resin, cast beautiful geometric shadows on the walls once lit. Another version of Trame is covered in striped coloured yarn; this one combines the shimmering play of light-and-shadow with wondrous chromatic effect.
