Nicci Green from Articolo lighting

We finally made it to the Articolo showroom in Richmond and unsurprisingly we were blown away (pun intended) to see Nicci Green’s gorgeous range of mouth-blown lighting, lamps, pendants and wall sconces in the flesh. The setting for her creative process is the beautiful and carefully considered space designed by David Goss of Studio Goss, and it's definitely worth having a look if you get the chance. Through Nicci’s unique bold style and mastery over her materials she balances playful individuality with restrained elegance in every piece. One thing I’ve always loved about Nicci Green’s range is that each piece has its own voice and often each piece is visually quite different from the next, but all her works are unified by Nicci’s timeless, great design and respect for her materials.

They invited me over to their popups and I had a chance to talk to Courtney Holm of A.BCH, Warren Harrison of Scott Benedictine and Brian Huynh of MNDATORY
