Founded in 1960, Italian brand Artemide has achieved iconic status in the world of lighting design.
Artemide designers have collaborated with some of the world’s leading architects, and its lamps are included in the permanent collections of several major museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).
Artemide’s designers base their work on what the company calls “the human light philosophy”, wherein lighting is a tool for improving human life. The goal is to create products that support people in their work and leisure activities, enhance their moods, and promote better wellbeing. Many designs incorporate LED lights for better visual clarity and lower environmental impact.
The company’s most renowned designs include the Tizio by Richard Sapper, the Tolomeo by Michele De Lucchi, and the newer Empatia by Carlotta De Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello.
