Luminaire design goes beyond the hard, static materiality of object design, exploring the illuminating, experiential properties of light as it emanates, diffuses and dances around the room. With the ability to highlight, shift mood, create ambience and have a strong presence as a design object in its own right, lighting is the ultimate design challenge.
ILANEL Studio was founded in 2010 by ILAN EL, a Melbourne based multidisciplinary designer who works with his team to create original products and custom designs by hand from his Melbourne atelier. Experiential lighting is ILAN EL’s passion and his products illuminate spaces around the world, from large-scale hospitality projects to custom one-off residential designs.
“I am passionate about lighting because it’s the only type of object that has a dual modes of existence – when it’s off, it’s an object, when it’s on, it comes to life.” – ILAN EL
ILAN EL and his team work closely with architects, interior designers and homeowners and tailor lighting solutions to every project, including custom and one-off designs.
