Artemide becomes part of the ADI Design Index 2017

Published on : Thursday, October 26, 2017

artemide - discoveryDiscovery suspension, the lamp designed by Ernesto Gismondi for Artemide, has been selected for publication in the ADI Design Index 2017, the second of two books that contain the best design projects selected for the Compasso d’Oro ADI 2018 Award.

Discovery conveys a deep knowledge of light and its perceptive qualities. It has an unobtrusive transparent and dematerialized structure, whose volume is only perceived when switched on, with light outlining the central emitting surface.

Discovery has an essential geometry that Ernesto Gismondi describes as follows: “In order to obtain such a thin and light ring we applied to bicycle manufacturers, and the result is this ultra-light aluminium profile for an almost invisible lamp.”

Such ultra-light profile hosts to a LED strip injecting light into a micro-engraved transparent PMMA surface.

Another Artemide project, the lamp Les Danseuses, designed by Atelier Oi, which was included in the ADI Design Index 2016 last year, will also compete for the Compasso d’Oro ADI 2018 Award.
