At Downtown Design, during Dubai Design Week, Artemide is presenting its new collections, the result of partnerships with major international architectural firms and research into state-of-the-art technologies.
First up representing the Artemide collections will be Gople Lamp, a bespoke design by BIG for a particularly emblematic building in Dubai: Area 2071, an open lab for learning, as well as developing ideas and experiences, shaping the future and experimenting with solutions with the capacity to forge a better future for humanity. The suspension lamp reconciles human spaces and nature through light. The hand-blown glass lamp houses patented RWB lighting technology that helps promote plant growth and creates an optimal environment for people too, in terms of emotional, physiological and perceptive experience.
Artemide products represent a unique crossover of values: the approach to human and responsible light is combined with design and material know-how, in a coming together of the most advanced technology and ancient knowledge, in the perfect expression of sustainable design.
That is why Artemide has always collaborated with major architectural firms, interpreting different cultural perspectives on lighting design for the development of innovative products but also for lighting solutions and custom projects. BIG, Neri&Hu, Gensler, MAD, Foster&Partner, Herzog & de Meuron, Jean Nouvel and Alejandro Aravena’s Elemental studio are just a few of the international companies that work with Artemide to develop their projects.
The Alphabet of Light system is a perfect example of how Artemide’s know-how is able to translate the vision of a studio like BIG into universal products. An alphabet of light comprising straight and curved modules, offering designers a tool for communicating and for designing a comfortable light that fits any space and is remarkably dynamic thanks to the control with the Artemide App.
Indeed, Artemide today has the ability to produce not only the most suitable light for every indoor and outdoor space, but also management and information intelligence: advanced digital interaction systems, the Internet of Things, sensors, Apps, LI-FI and Geo Li-Fi, through to designing actual software.
With its Design and Architectural catalogues, the company offers a comprehensive and wide-ranging collection: not just iconic designer products, but professional lighting systems too. Representing the Architectural solutions are the A.24 system and the Vector family of spotlights, tools for enriching spaces with a variety of light performances offering continuity and flexibility.
Discovery interprets Artemide’s technological know-how and culture of design with a surprising solution that translates innovation into emotional perception. It is a totally absent and dematerialized element that acquires volume only when switched on, revealing a striking presence and a comfortable and perfect light emission even for work spaces.
Downtown Design will also feature the presentation of the Come Together portable light, a task lamp that can be moved around freely, offering 3 light intensities and 16/8/4 hours unplugged from mains power thanks to a Li-Po rechargeable battery and ultra-high efficiency, generated by an optical system designed in-house by Artemide.
Artemide has a steady, consolidated presence in Dubai thanks to its flagship store in the Dubai Design District: a skills hub and reference point for sector professionals.
