AY illuminate is based in the Netherlands and produces its own lighting in several countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. The designers of Ay illuminate are inspired by both nature and different cultures which is reflected in their use of organic shapes and natural (waste) materials combined with local handicraft expertise.
To get inspired the design team is working together with the local handcrafters. This allows us to get to know the natural materials available and the expertise of the handcraft. It is our way to discover the best solution to catch the unique beauty of different techniques.
