When engineering meets design, there is an explosion of light. Ernesto Gismondi who founded Artemide in 1959 became the 20th century leader in lighting design and manufacturing.
In collaboration with designers such as Michele De Lucchi, Vico Magistretti and David Chipperfield, Artemide boasts a vast portfolio of lights to transform contemporary and traditional spaces alike.
Look at usual things with unusual eyes.
Vico Magistretti (October 6, 1920 – September 19, 2006) was one of Italy’s most influential industrial designers, known as a furniture designer and architect and primarily for his iconic modern furniture and lighting designs for Artemide. His designs invariably link sculptural elegance with technical sophistication.
Born into a family of notable Milanese architects, Italian designer Vico Magistretti was rigid in his philosophy: there is no excuse for bad design. Today, his award-winning work is dotted across the globe – in galleries, museums and private residences – each piece exemplifying his uncanny ability to fuse simplicity with essentialism in contemporary design.
