‘IN-EI’ Katatsumuri Lamp by Issey Miyake + Reality Lab for Artemide

“IN-EI” is Japanese for shadow, shadiness, nuance. Derived from a process originally created by Issey Miyake’s R&D lab, the Reality Lab., to make clothing using 3D geometry, the IN-EI lighting series marries Artemide’s lighting expertise with Miyake’s innovative approach to material and design. The result then was clothing that could be folded flat and become 3D shapes, as can the lamps now, easily stored flat when not in use.
