Artemide illuminates Piero della Francesca

Artemide is the technical sponsor of the exhibition "Piero della Francesca. Il polittico agostiniano riunito" that offers the unique opportunity to admire the eight panels of this Renaissance masterpiece together at the Poldi Pezzoli in an installation designed by architect Italo Rota and the international architecture studio CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati. Light complements this unique experience by seeking a perceptive coherence that leads back to the painting's origins.
16 Discovery Space Spot placed side by side recreate a large sky that illuminates the different panels of the work with an absolutely comfortable diffused uniform light. Thanks to Tunable White technology, it also recreates dynamically the perfect colour temperature of natural light. 
The Vector spot, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and placed inside a circular hole in the emitting surface, contributes significantly to enhancing the perception of paintings.

The patented Discovery technology creates an element that doesn't invade the environment, totally absent and dematerialised when switched off, it gains volume when switched on thanks to the light that draws the central emitting surface. These generate a precise and punctual light extraction according to a flow balance with respect to the emitting surface that guarantees perfect visual comfort, an enveloping and constant light on both sides.
