Based in Bangkok, Thailand, ANGO is a modern lighting company originally established in 2003. Its head designer is Angus Hutcheson, who has designed furniture and architecture since graduating from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, UK. ANGO is very much part of the movement in the design world to create a new relationship with the natural and organic world, literally and allegorically, and each Ango design is “…..as an emblem of sustainable consumption,…”. Literally in that patterns of nature often form the starting point to Ango designs and natural untreated materials are often used to realise them. And emblematically in that their designs evoke a localised kind of harmonious ecology that is incarnated with low energy light. In all Ango designs, high levels of handcrafted skill are merged with design and technical innovation to create unique lighting pieces. Natural untreated silk cocoons were one of the first natural materials that Ango developed lighting designs with, and much of the magic stems from light being refracted by the light at different angles, so producing subtly different colours.
