Never one to disappoint, Italian lighting leaders Artemide have introduced a few new fixtures we’re really excited about. From head-turning suspension lamps to lights that double as works of art, here’s a look at a few of our favorite new introductions.
Scopa Suspension by Neil Poulton for Artemide
This stunning, semi-absent sphere changes its silhouette depending on the angle from which you look at it—from one side it may resemble a crescent moon, and another a sphere with a bite taken out of it. The sphere is made up of round LED plates that creates 360 degrees of illumination. The piece was originally designed with 12 modules to create a round shape; Scottish designer Neil Poulten removed six of them to create a balanced between what was there and what was not.
Ilio Floor Lamp by Ernesto Gismondi
A perfect punch of saturated color is at the heart of this simple floor lamp from Ernesto Gismondi. The fixture uses a basic shape and design, letting the 7 color variations draw attention to the aluminum cylinder, which supports a 39-watt LED optical engine at the top. Almost 6 feet tall, the light provides enough indirect light to provide the general illumination of a room.
Hoshigame Table Lamp by Issey Miyake
One of our favorite introductions for Artemide last year was the IN-EI collection from fashion icon Issey Miyake. Each lamp is made using 3D mathematical principals, resulting in a fixture that’s appears as fine as paper and draws on the play between shadow and light. The newest addition to the collection is the Hoshigame Table Lamp (star tortoise), which can the folded flat or expanded into a three-dimensional half star shape over an LED bulb.
