Articolo has opened the doors to its new lighting showroom, studio and workshop in Melbourne’s Richmond. 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.

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

The existing floor plan was adapted through the repositioning of existing walls, to create a cohesive sequence of spaces that tell the varied stories of Articolo’s collection. 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.”

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