Artemide Modern Italian Lighting
Artemide Modern Italian Lighting

Artemide's goal is both simple and extremely complicated: turn light into a means to improve quality of life.

For Italian lighting giants Artemide, designing light 'means reaching beyond the purely functional role of lighting and embracing... a new focus on psychological and physiological needs.' The company works not just with designers but also universities, think-tanks, and scientific experts in fields such as medicine, life sciences, psychology, and anthropology to develop their innovative lighting systems.

The company has won several accolades, including the Compasso d'Oro award for lifetime achievement in 1995 and its products are featured in several museum permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the V&A in London.

Undoubtedly, they are best-known for the Tolomeo light by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina. Designed in 1986, it is one of the most recognisable desk lamps in the world, available in almost infinite varieties of floor, table, ceiling and wall variants. 

The Tizio desk lamp by Richard Sapper is another iconic Artemide design, the first domestic light to feature the use of halogen bulbs, it also utilised a clever counterweight mechanism to position and direct the light source. The Tizio and Tizio Micro Desk Lamp have since been updated to include the use of the latest LED technology.
