OUR TEAM

Be it eye-catching lights made from bamboo or hand woven sisal pillows, The designers of Ay illuminate always work with what they find in nature and cultures around the world. In close cooperation with artisans in Asia and Africa they explore the natural materials and traditional skills at hand. This results in contemporary, organically shaped designs, created by local techniques in natural materials. Ay illuminate’s products celebrate the unique beauty of traditional handicrafts around the globe.
