Lighting Brands

Artemide
Founded in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi, Artemide is based in Pregnana Milanese, Italy. It is one of the most known illumination brands in the world. Known for its “The Human Light” philosophy, Artemide boasts high skills in light design and innovation, with products originating from research and high-quality manufacturing. The Artemide Lamps are considered on an international level as Design Icons of contemporary design; they are exhibited in most museums of modern art and design collections.

Lucifero's
Lucifero’s is the story of a family who, with insight and determination, founded a small company in 1978 in Bologna, where still today it operates. Now this small company has become a leader in the production of equipment for high quality architectural lighting, completely “made in Italy”. At Lucifero’s, the design of the product is aimed at harmoniously suiting the light fixture to the surrounding architecture, not only in the phisical sense, but in the material sense as well. Based on the conviction that lighting should be at the service of architecture, at Lucifero’s they are more interested in the function and the visual tasks that the fixture has to perform, rather than the design if the object itself.

Flexia is a game of perception between the visible, material and colored, and the invisible that becomes light. Flexia is a modular suspension system of great visual impact that is inspired by the Japanese art of origami. With its versatile and light design, it fits transversally in all those environments where it is necessary to ensure a better acoustic and visual well-being, from open space offices to hotels.

Katà Métron

©Federico Villa

Katà Métron finds inspiration in the relationship that lies at the heart of art, architecture and philosophy: measurement. The Greek expression “katà métron” means “according to right measure”. With this expression, the original Greek philosophical thought referred to the attitude of those who know how to take care of themselves. Greek architecture adopts a construction logic based on the idea of “module”, that is the single element which creates the measure of the whole. It is the concept of order as a sequence of repeated elements. Finally, art is the union of philosophy and architecture. Katà Métron combines simplicity, functionality and aesthetics. Innovation, culture of the project and shared commitment towards the creation of products that are increasingly sustainable and attentive to the use of the limited resources of our planet, lead to an innovative and surprising solution. Mario Cucinella has designed an object in which the modular light elements can create an...
