The Exquisite Home of Articolo Lighting


A couple of weeks ago in this New + Noted post I featured some incredible new lighting designs by Melbourne design studio Articolo. The brand's elegant aesthetic, use of luxurious materials and impeccable workmanship really struck a chord. Interested to find out more, I have been fortunate to obtain imagery of the brand's new lighting showroom, studio and workshop in Melbourne's Richmond. A breathtakingly beautiful space, founder and creative director Nicci Green collaborated with architect David Goss to create a refined environment that reflects Articolo’s celebration of the art of light and continued exploration of artisanship and materiality. Here's a look inside.

Nicci, who founded the business in 2012, says “We were driven to showcase our lighting within a space more akin to a gallery than a traditional showroom. The result represents my vision for how Articolo pieces beautifully intersect with interior spaces.”

The existing floorplan was adapted through the repositioning of existing walls, to create a cohesive sequence of spaces that tell the varied stories of Articolo’s revered lighting. An exploration of texture and materiality, reflecting the studio’s own ethos, is seamlessly woven throughout; with concrete rendered walls meeting brass panelling, and custom terrazzo floors melting into timber; a marriage of materials not dissimilar to Articolo’s lighting itself.

Walking through the intimately quiet space inspires a sense of discovery with a series of design “moments” anchored by form and luminance. A confidently minimalist approach to displaying the collection highlights refined detailing and the rare beauty of artisanal production. “The interior design process was remarkably insightful,” says Nicci. “It challenged our thinking and encouraged us to embrace the ‘art of light’ in a wonderful but practical application. Multiple light sources made for a difficult task, but with David’s instinctive approach, the outcome was meticulously resolved.”

Adjacent to the showroom is Articolo’s design studio and workshop, where new designs are born and each piece is finished by hand. “The design process is obviously integral to our brand, so it felt only right that the showroom, studio and workshop should coexist within the one environment,” says Green. “It represents every element of Articolo and the respect we have for each stage of the process.”

An exquisite project inside and out, I love how the spaces perfectly echo the Articolo aesthetic and material palette.

The Articolo Showroom, Studio and Workshop are located at 18 Willis Street, Richmond in Melbourne and are open by appointment.
