The creations, of pure appearance, are in reality the result of a long work of research, innovation and design. One strand after another, craftsmen from all over the world bring these organic shaped pendant lights to life. Resembling cocoons or stones polished by water, each model is unique and carries with it a story: that of a know-how put, with passion, at the service of a re-imagined interior design.
The countries of Asia and Africa are the ones that inspire the Dutch brand the most. Indeed, it is in these countries that the oldest examples of working with plant fibers have been found, and it is also there that basketry is still traditionally practiced, according to techniques that have passed through the generations and allow to obtain unique and durable decorative items. For this reason, each model carries this cultural identity, inherited from yesterday's traditions and brought up to date.
Indeed, it is under the sign of innovation that AY Illuminate wishes to place its creations. Drawing on inspirations from around the world, the brand revises the traditional and transforms it into something new, which is as much part of an approach to highlight know-how as in a desire to innovate, to break the codes. and to offer everyone extraordinary pieces of lighting, which will bring them light and joy in the long term. To affirm this conviction, AY Illuminate has participated in numerous furnishing projects for places frequented by the public, all over the world.
