Hoshigame – Issey Miyake for Artemide

The art of lighting has a conceptual and technological heritage at the Miyake Design Studio, dating back to 2010, when Issey Miyake and his team presented “132 5“.

The IN-EI Collection

Miyake’s trademark folding technology combines with a special fabric derived from recycled PET bottles to create sculptural yet rigid forms. Designed to be collapsible, the geometric shades retain their form perfectly

without the need for an internal frame. The range’s intricate shades were designed using complex 2 and 3 dimensional mathematical principles.
