Artemide will compete in the next edition of the Compasso d’Oro ADI Award with the whole IN-EI collection designed by Issey Miyake and Reality Lab and Copernico designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paolo Dell’Elce.
The long-standing relation between Artemide and the Compasso d’Oro ADI Award started in 1967, when the company received the high-prestige prize for the lamp Eclisse, then for Tolomeo, for Pipe and, in 1995, for Lifetime Achievements. These appliances are still included in the product catalogue and are characterized by high-level design and technological innovation.
The IN-EI collection (selected for the 2013 ADI Design Index) and the lamp Copernico (selected for the 2012 ADI Design Index) are both characterized by great innovation and the commitment of Artemide to on-going research aimed at developing and adopting lighting systems to ensure maximum energy efficiency, reducing consumptions and promotingeco-sustainable development.
The Artemide IN-EI collection, designed by Issey Miyake and Reality Lab is a family of appliances made of a recycled material – a regenerated fibre obtained from PET bottles – that offers interesting light diffusion capabilities. Manufactured using innovative methods, it reduces energy consumption by 40%, and the CO2 emissions that would result from the production of new materials.
The IN-EI collection received the iF Gold of the iF Product Design Award 2013.
Copernico, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paolo Dell’Elce is an appliance made of nine concentric and mobile ellipses obtained from a single laser-cut anodized aluminium sheet. The ellipses support a set of 384 white LEDs.
Its limited volume and weight ensure significant energy saving upon transport and storage. The mobility of the elements and the very low voltage LED sources, which consume a tiny amount of power, allow to configure light in space by physically grasping and moving the appliance, and thus adjusting light emission. Copernico received the Reddot Design Award in 2011.
