“EMBRACING A HUMAN-CENTRED APPROACH TO LIGHTING, ILANEL DESIGN STUDIO CELEBRATES A DECADE OF VISIONARY DESIGN, CONTINUING FOUNDER ILAN EL’S LEGACY AS ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S LEADING LUMINAIRE DESIGNERS AND MAKERS.” The Local Project

In 2020, the Melbourne lighting atelier celebrated its 10-year anniversary, moving from strength to strength despite global and local challenges. “We were fortunate to be able to work through and have a great deal of success in a year of Australian and Melbourne Covid-19 lockdowns,” reflects founder and director Ilan El. In doing so, ILANEL supported many other local artisans and businesses while expanding its reach into new and exciting territories.

 

Ilan collaborated with renowned graffiti artists Chuck Mayfield to reimagine the façade of ILANEL‘s St Kilda studio into a “graphic glowing depiction of light and life”.

One of the highlights for ILANEL in 2020 was a commission for the National Gallery of Victoria’s permanent collection. The conceptual luminaire, ‘Ora: an interactive eclipse‘, was launched at the NGV’s 2020 Triennial. Mediating between light and darkness through transparent colour, “The work draws associations with the development of psychological inquiry and the growing awareness of environmental factors on human emotions and behaviours,” explains Simone LeAmon, Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture at National Gallery of Victoria.
