Artemide presents new collections at Milan Design Week 2022
Artemide is protagonist of the Milan Design Week with products coming from continuous research and technological innovation.
For more than 60 years Artemide has been designing and producing light through the synthesis of humanistic vision, scientific research and know-how measured by the values of environmental and social sustainability.
Carring on the heritage of the founder Ernesto Gismondi, Artemide combines creativity and measure, knowledge and know-how by collaborating with leading Italian and international architects and designers.
BIG, Mario Cucinella, Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Michele De Lucchi, Foster + Partners, Herzog & de Meuron, Carolina Gismondi and Daniele Moioli are the authors of the novelties presented. Artemide has always listened to the world, through research and through collaborations with those who design the spaces of present and future living.
The new collections combine innovation and ancient knowledge, they are flexible and transversal proposals capable of bringing a good light in private and public spaces, personal or shared, indoors and outdoors.
In addition, Artemide presents the developments of the patented INTEGRALIS® technology, the innovative light that sanitizes spaces by integrating perfectly into the products of the Artemide collections.
Artemide celebrates the 50th anniversary of Richard Sapper's Tizio, icon not only of the Artemide collection but also of Italian design, with a special signed and numbered red edition.
Artemide proudly participates in the Salone del Mobile, in the “S.Project” pavilion, in the stand designed by Mario Cucinella. Artemide has always supported the important role of the Salone del Mobile in the centrality of Milan as a reference for international design. Take part in this 60th edition in the special "S.Project" pavilion dedicated to innovation and sustainability, an important change that introduces not typological but value-based filters.
All the novelties are also presented in the Milanese window of the Corso Monforte Showroom.
Artemide also presents its collections in the Exhibition Center in the Pregnana Milanese Headquarters, the permanent exhibition space inaugurated in September 2021 where you can experience the light that expresses the know-how, skills and values of Artemide.
IXA by Foster+Partners
Ixa is a complete, transversal family whose composition begins with the intelligence of a sphericalhead with a 360° freedom of movement. The head separates the electrical cable from the mechanism and is connected to the structureitself by a magnet that allows it to freely rotate, allowing its handy light to be projected in anydirection. Ixa is the expression of functional, productive and sustainable intelligence through reduced andsimplified choices, the result of a solid design know-how. Artemide and Foster+Partners share a profound approach to sustainable design that permeatesproduct development at every stage and marks itself as an essential value of the project.
Osidio by Michele de Lucchi
It is a thin, organic and harmonious chandelier, where everything stems from an optical concept. Three branched arms distribute 6 luminous heads, opening them with respect to the surface being lit. The optic is designed so that it can viewed directly without creating glare. Its internal structure maximises efficiency; thanks to several optical layers, it creates a diffused and shielded emitting surface for optimal uniformity of light emission while the external transparent optics direct the light rays controlling them for perfect perception. Each light terminal can be swivelled to generate indirect light emission.
Veil by BIG
BIG’s idea is once again transposed into a product that looks essential but it is rich of technological innovation instead, thanks to the Artemide know-how. Eleven arms are connected around a technological core that supports and feeds them. Their fluid and precise curvature reveals a high design and manufacturing competence: the section of only 25 mm combines the structure with an optics that controls the light and softly diffuses it into the environment.
Veil is a graphic and minimal presence that can be dressed with an elegant diffuser. It rests on the structure and falls among its arms with soft curves defined by fabric weight and materiality. The diffusers are different for fiber composition and texture but come from the same research of innovative, sustainable and ethic solutions as alternatives to more traditional and industrial textiles with higher carbon footprint.
Unterlinden by Herzog & de Meuron
Unterlinden was designed in 2014 as a small suspension lamp that combines the aesthetic charmof an old-wisdom object with superior technological and lighting value. It was coined to meet aspecific design need for the Colmar Unterlinden Museum in France.Again to follow the spaces of their architecture with light, the table version was launched in 2017for the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli library in Milan.Today, the Unterlinden family has been expanded with new versions, not just for indoor settingsbut for the outdoors as well.
