IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT
Using fabric made from improved recycled polyester fiber and forms developed by applying three-dimensional mathematical principles, the new 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE clothes were born in autumn 2010. In the development process of the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE project, attempts to explore design from a broader viewpoint - not just limited to clothing - evolved into the IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lighting products. It is a collection of free-standing, table and hanging lights developed by Issey Miyake + Reality Lab. and manufactured by Artemide. The production of the lighting products involved not only the latest technology, but also the work by human hands. And, at the base of the products' concept is the traditional Japanese esthetics about the relationship between light and shadow (in-ei). The three-dimensional form concept developed for 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE is used in creating the lampshades. The non-woven fabric made from recycled pet bottles is used with special surface treatment for the lampshades, and the fabric has unique light transmission quality. They require no internal frame to support, and can be folded flat when not in use.
