IN-EI BY ISSEY MIYAKE FOR ARTEMIDE
IN-EI is a new collection of table, floor, and hanging lamps by fashion designer Issey Miyake for the Italian lighting manufacturer Artemide. Born from the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE project in which clothing can be folded flat but also become a three-dimensional form, Miyake and his research team Reality Lab. naturally transitioned into lighting.
