Ixa achieves two awards

We are very pleased to announce that Ixa, designed by Foster + Partners, has the iF Gold Award e il Design Plus Award.

Artemide and Foster + Partners share a profound approach to sustainable design that permeates product development at every stage and marks itself as an essential value of the project.
Ixa is a complete, transversal family whose composition begins with the intelligence of a spherical head with a 360° freedom of movement.
Ixa is the expression of a functional, productive and sustainable intelligence through reducing and simplifying choices. It is the result of a solid design know-how.

This design is all about balance, expressed in the form and function of the luminaire itself, and in the visual statement it makes. It blends the poise and elegant dynamism of an Alexander Calder sculpture with the architectural quality of Breuer’s cantilevered chair. Like all great designs, this invites the observer to become a user.

Image of the Ixa Floor in motion

It is no coincidence that the interplay of lines and spheres of IXA Floor brings the art of Alexander Calder to mind, as his mobiles served as inspiration for the collaboration between Artemide and Foster & Partner. The floor lamp can be moved at will, and even the luminaire head can be detached from the neck and then put in any position you want thanks to the magnet. Another great feature is the functional benefits and refined appearance are consistently combined with sustainability in the choice of materials and the manufacturing process.
