Paris, September 02-06, 2016 – After Light+Building, the Milan Design Week, ICFF in New York, and the Architecture Biennale 2016 in Venice, at Maison&Objet Artemide will enjoy another important opportunity to introduce innovative lighting projects originating from its relations with international top brands, universities, architects, and cultural organizations, thus confirming its ongoing focus on research and testing of groundbreaking solutions.
At Maison&Object Artemide introduces products and next-generation tools to design the light of the future – operating intelligence options that allow to make the most of the potentials of physical products, providing a more modern and versatile response to design and application requirements.
• Artemide and Mercedes-Benz Style: A Bright Future

Two international leaders partner to design new synergies. The design of Artemide and Mercedes-Benz has been traditionally human centered, focused on human beings, their experience and interaction. Ameluna suspension is the first revolutionary project derived from this collaboration combining beauty and intelligence. Thanks to the high manifacturing quality, the optoelectronic innovation and the digital integration with its surroundigns Ameluna represents an innovative vision of design where light is able to generate emotion and interaction.

• Artemide and Tapio Rosenius: Light Over Time
LoT (Light over Time), designed by Tapio Rosenius, is a set of lighting instruments to reinterpret and modulate space as never before – a family of multi-focus projectors and a software for real-time interaction with lighting scenarios.
• Artemide and BIG – Alphabet of Light, for simple and free communication with light
Alphabet of Light, signed by the architecture firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), is a modular system of linear and curved lighting elements that use the letters of the alphabet to create a new light font.
• Artemide and Carlotta de Bevilacqua
Alphabet of Light, designed by the architecture firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), is a modular system of lighting elements creating light fonts and linear or complex geometries. It features a basic principle generating an open system and producing continous and comfortable light by means of a patented optical solution.
Orsa is a project by studio Foster + Partners, featuring an elegant, minimal lighting body that is multiplied to produce spectacular chandeliers.
Herzog & De Meuron designed Unterlinden, a lamp combining the aesthetic glamour of an old-fashioned object with high technological and lighting value.
High-quality manufacturing, innovative patented technologies
Artemide translates wisdom into savoir-faire: the project Discovery, by Ernesto Gismondi, is an expression of deep knowledge of light and of its perceived qualities; in the suspension lamp Chlorophilia by Ross Lovegrove the competence of Artemide in the light engine of the lighting body merges with the author’s typical sign to create organic and fluid forms.
Advanced manufacturing know-how goes hand in hand with craft quality: in Incalmo and Invero, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, the old craft glass-blowing technique is combined with optoelectric innovation, with a reference to old wisdoms and a contemporary review of craft competences.
Rediscovering and redesigninig men’s dwelling and working spaces through light
Artemide also focuses on environmental quality with the lamps Silent Field and Nur Acustic, exploring the theme of sound absorption to ensure excellent visual and acoustic quality in all kinds of environments.
Algoritmo is an open lighting system that works through an integrated dynamic interaction with architecture, featuring new controlled optical units to design light in space in view of comfort and high yields.
The new versions of Tolomeo Mega Outdoor by Michele De Lucchi are designed for outdoor use.
The display also includes projects capable to animate space with contrasting colours and forms, such as the lamps Decomposé Light and Stab Light designed, respectively, by Atelier Oi and Arik Levy for Danese (Artemide Group), or the whole family of lamps La Petite, designed by Quaglio Simonelli, that – though seemingly simple and essential – convey all the savoir-faire of Artemide and combine care for product details with a focus on the quality of light.
In September, in Paris, Artemide confirms its ability to interpret and translate the needs of contemporary design into more and more innovative products.
