Artemide showcases the latest lighting collection at Dubai Design Week 2020
Artemide introduces its latest, forward-thinking lighting collections in partnership with established international architecture firms and developed using research based on cutting-edge technologies. Displayed through installations and showcases within the exhibitions, extensive programming across varying locations in the d3. As part of the d3 edit, a capsule exhibit featuring works across a diverse range of design disciplines by various individuals and brands in the d3, Artemide presents a scenographic installation of the innovative Discovery Space. Discovery, designed by Artemide’s Founder and President Ernesto Gismondi, interprets Artemide’s technological expertise and design knowledge to produce surprising solutions.
Artemide’s latest product collection La Linea designed in partnership with renowned international architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group: BIG is also presented within the district. Launched earlier this year, La Linea is a flexible tube of light, capable of freely twisting and turning in space according to undefined geometries. With its minimal form, the object’s versatility allows the structure to either adhere to the architecture or use folds to create highly expressive three-dimensional shapes and linear graphics. Due to the light’s high mechanical and thermal resistance, the product complements architectural forms both indoor and outdoor. La Linea is on show within the d3 Architectural Festival, a showcase of 40 of the best architectural works in the GCC region, ranging from small to large works that have contributed to both the economic and cultural value of the surrounding built environment.
Debuting at the 2020 edition, Artemide is supporting the exhibition’s charity initiative Designed for Sharing by Fantini Mosaici. Housed with the ground floor of the d3 building, Artemide’s Alphabet of Light circular suspensions, together with Tolomeo Maxi and Cadmo floor lamps, illuminate the 17 tables designed by artists and creatives that are participating in the UAE Red Crescent Authority silent auction.
