Upholding Italy's reputation for excellence and innovation in design, Artemide is a world leader in contemporary lighting. Offering both residential and commercial lighting solutions, Artemide has made forward thinking a company policy. Instantly recognizable designs originating from the 1960's, when Artemide was founded by Ernesto Gismondi, are still in production today along side contemporary lighting creations by current acclaimed designers. Artemide's expansive catologue ranges from the organic and elegant Logico collection to the clean and simple spheres of the Castore family. Many of the most iconic products of history can be found here.
The Artemide Group is much more than lighting. A core element of the manufacturer is their commitment to ethical conduct and social responsibility. A progressive environmental policy is also a major element in both production methods and technology research. What Artemide is most widely known for however, is a coined design philosophy that defines the company's approach: the Human Light Philosophy. Thoughtfully considering the user's lifestyle, daily activities and investment in home, Human Light sets out to provide an illuminated companion, rather than just simply illumination. Lights that are adaptable, flexible and allow for optimum visual precision while conserving environmental resources are Human Lights. A light that accompanies us during our daily activities and has a tangible effect on our well being, emotional health and ultimately our quality of life is Artemide.
Artemide Dioscuri Table/Floor Lamp Designed by:
- Michele De Lucchi , 2000/2003
Michele De Lucchi
Michele De Lucchi studied architecture in Padua and Florence. In 1973 he joined forces with other designers and architects to form Cavart, a radical design group that put on “happenings” and held seminars in Padua. In 1978 De Lucchi moved to Milan, where he worked for Kartell in their proprietary studio, Centrokappa. There he met Ettore Sottsass, and joined the Studio Alchimia designers.
In 1980 Michele De Lucchi joined the Memphis group, designing a sofa and the First Chair in 1983. In the late 1980s Michele De Lucchi turned to lighting design. Tolomeo, a stringently, functional aluminum task lamp, designed in collaboration with Giancarlo Fassina, for Artemide in 1987, became an international bestseller. In 2003 the Castore Lamp series was launched. They consisted of milky white, hand blown Murano glass, with no perceptible transition between foot and lampshade.
