Objective and Sisifo receive the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015


January 30, 2015 – The lamps Objective, designed by Jean Nouvel, and Sisifo, designed by Scott Wilson, obtained the iF Design Award 2015, one of the most relevant worldwide tributes granted from over sixty years to design excellence and high quality applied to the best international projects.
Objective is a small-sized aluminium cylinder breaking down into perfect geometries: each of the three segments houses a separate LED light source to illuminate a variety of distances and situations. The first segment produces ambient light; the second offers a focused light beam, with an optical unit illuminating the desk surface as needed through a 360° rotation on the horizontal axis; the third emits upward light.
“It is a compact, minimal and unobtrusive appliance which can be transformed and operated like a photographic objective, with rotating segments producing the desired form of light as needed. Objective is three, four lamps in one,” explains Jean Nouvel describing his lamp designed for Artemide.
Objective was awarded in all its three versions – table, reading, and wall lamp.
Sisifo, designed by Scott Wilson for Artemide, is a table lamp combining the needs for visual comfort and ambient lighting. The central spherical junction allows to easily adjust its light, ensuring appropriate illumination on a variety of desk and table surfaces.
The minimal dimensions of the base allow its use both on tables and on small-sized bedside tables.
Sisifo is made of aluminium and features a flat plastic diffuser emitting warm, relaxing LED light.
Objective and Sisifo provide a practical example of Artemide’s commitment towards thorough research and ongoing innovation in the design of ground-breaking lighting systems.
Artemide lights offer design, eco-efficiency, long life, sensible use of resources, ‘more with less’.

The awarding ceremony of the iF Design Award 2015 will take place on February 27th at the BMW WELT in Munich.
