ARTEMIDE TAKES A COLORFUL STAND
WITH NEW LIGHTING DESIGNS
Ever since 1960, the Italian Artemide has been designing, producing and distributing
its globally renowned collections of design lighting, where knowledge and craftsmanship
go hand in hand with innovation and sustainability. The true interior design lover of course
knows the many Artemide design incons, but during the Milan Design Week in April this year
they presented their latest creations, clearly showing their colors!
Old Venetian traditions with a modern twist
Venetian glass blowers are world famous and have been praised for centuries by their special blowing techniques. Especially for Artemide’s new ‘Gople’, this unique Venetian glass art was combined with silver, bronze, copper and colored, environmentally friendly coatings. This created a traditional, timeless and yet very modern collection of lighting objects, in which various colors can be combined with each other to meet everyone’s needs at this time.
Surprising technological discoveries
At the Salone del Mobile in April, Artemide surprised us all with the “Discovery”. The light objects from this collection were presented on the basis of spectacular and colorful light shows, which stimulated all the senses. Designed for various office spaces, where well-being is key and colors determine emotions. When the object is off, it is an inconspicuous element, but when you switch it on, the Discovery is actually able to add color to life. Use yellow for the necessary dose of creativity, blue during a sympathetic consultation and red to give your (colleagues) an energy boost!
Visual algorithmes in a honeycumb
The Calipso is inspired by the silent beauty of the moon and the busy ‘delivery rooms’ of a hive. This design is also a big nod to the digital algorithms imposed on us; something we have to deal with in these modern times. Due to its geometric looks and the uniform light distribution, the Calipso is a fine lamp in terms of both aesthetics and functionality, which can be used both at home and in the office.
The new Artemide collections are now available at Flinders, alongside numerous other (Italian) lighting objects. Flinders regularly offers attractive discounts on their design products. Check the Flinders site for this or visit the store in Zaandam.
