Illuminami is a design studio, retail store and consulting interior design practice. It is the result of two worlds colliding; Italy and Australia, art and commerce, tradition and rebellion, history and youth. Barbara Bellacci and Madeline Hopkins are the responsible parties for this ongoing dialogue in design.
Continuing and reconfiguring Italy's artisan tradition is the foundation of the business. All products are handmade, and this provides a flexibility and personal touch impossible in industrial production.
Inspired by friendship and travel, Caravan of Love is a collection of lamps, suspended lights, cushions & objects made from exotic fabrics, trims and experiences gathered along the way. No matter how nomadic or established the lifestyle, love, friendship and beautiful objects are treasured talismans.
Linen, cotton, jute and calico are used as a natural foil against the rigidity and gleam of metal and glass in Industrial Garden. Soft versus hard, rigid versus flexible, raw versus manufactured; this collection is a call back to simplicity and the beauty of materials in their natural state.
Leaves, birds, branches and the occasional yo-yo make an appearance in the more established garden.
