    Minomushi Floor Lamp by Issey Miyake from Artemide. Artemide IN-EI Minomuschi floor light designed by Issey Miyake and Reality Lab, a floor standing sculpture of light and shadow. Envisioned as a modern interpretation of traditional Japanese lanterns, The Minomushi lamp is part of Issey Miyake's IN-EI lighting collection. Conceived by acclaimed Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake and his Reality Lab. design studio, and brought to life by Italian lighting manufacturer Artemide. The essence of the Issey Miyake's Artemide IN-EI lamps is the interaction between shadow and light. The fabric and folds allow the lamp to maintain its form without any internal supports. The intricate angles and pleats echo Miyake’s signature clothing designs and will remain precise and crisp over time. Blending harmonious light patterns with traditional Japanese crafts, the IN-EI Issey Miyake light fixtures will fill you with joy every time you turn them on.

    Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake has created a range of beautiful LED lights for Italian lighting company Artemide that unfold from flat 2D shapes into 3D shades. These beautiful Japanese styled pendant lights can be easily stored flat when not in use. Each IN-EI lampshade is created using 2 or 3D mathematical principals, where light and shade harmoniously alternate.  Issey Miyake's unique folding technology resulted in timeless sculptures of light that are a joy to behold.  The structure of the recycled material, together with an additional surface treatment allows these shades to perfectly keep their shape without the need for internal frame, and to be re-shaped when needed.

    "IN-EI" - Japanese for "shadow, shadiness, nuance". The art of lighting has a conceptual and technological heritage at the Miyake Design Studio, dating back to 2010, when Issey Miyake and his research and development team called Reality Lab, presented 132-5 ISSEY MIYAKE. This new process was developed using a mathematical program with 3-D geometric principals by Jun Mitani. The patented 132-5 Issey Miyake pleating technique is an extremely ingenious way by which to make clothing, and a process that provides yet another example of directions the quest for innovative textiles technologies can take. The project comes from the intersection of creativity and mathematics, resulting in clothing that can be folded flat and become 3D shapes, starting from a single piece of cloth. Each Issey Miyake IN-EI lamp utilizes special fabric derived from recycled PET bottles, processed using an innovative technology that reduces both energy consumption and CO2 emissions up to 80% when compared to the production of new materials. Fibers in the material make it self-supporting so there's no need for a separate frame inside. As the Reality Lab. explored Issey Miyake's pleating potential in areas beyond clothing, a natural extension of the process was lighting products.  IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE was born from a collaboration with Artemide marrying their lighting expertise with the fashion designer's innovative approach to the material and design.  In a way, the IN-EI lamps could be considered as a 21st century re-interpretation of Isamu Noguchi's Akari lamps.
