Artemide confirms its collaboration with La Biennale di Venezia, established in 2015, and supports the 57th International Art Exhibition, open from May 13 to November 26, 2017, with its lighting projects.
This collaboration conveys the effort of the Italian Group, an international light design leader, to invest in culture and promote new approaches to art and architecture.
This year’s edition, with the title “Viva Arte Viva”, is a show inspired by humanism, according to the words of its curator Christine Macel.
For Artemide, supporting the Biennale Arte 2017 means sharing themes and contents. “Designing light is not just about designing a form, but also addressing technical and performance-related issues, always with a close focus on man, his existential needs, his wellbeing,” says Architect Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Vice President of Artemide. “At Artemide, technological research always goes hand in hand with a human vision and an ethical and social approach.”
Since the 1990s, with “The Human Light” Artemide has been changing the way to conceive light and designing perfect solutions to improve the quality of light in dwelling spaces, both for the present and for the future.
This process continues today with an even broader approach, investigating new possible interactions between man, space, and light and combining technological innovation, sociological investigation, and research.
Artemide participates in the world’s finest contemporary art exhibition by sharing contents, as well as providing its lighting projects to underline the visiting experience throughout the show, in collective and social areas, and in the installations at the Giardini and at the Arsenale, also including the Applied Arts Pavilion at Sale d’Armi, curated by Jorge Pardo, in collaboration with Victoria & Albert Museum. These appliances convey the competence of Artemide in “making light”, and their aesthetic and innovative value perfectly fits into the show and blends with its natural surroundings.
