Artemide is a worldwide leader in lighting design with an unparalleled commitment to technological innovation and research. The team at the research and development center in Pregnana Milanese developes every product from concept to industrial production.
Since 2010, in addition to classic automobile design, Mercedes-Benz designers have also created designs for other products in cooperation with selected partners under the label Mercedes-Benz Style. The aim is to transfer Mercedes-Benz's unmistakable, progressive design idiom and high standards of luxury and aesthetic appeal to other spheres of life. All of the products designed by Mercedes-Benz Style boast a dynamic and avant-garde design that is the hallmark of the brand, as well as uncompromising quality and a choice of fine materials finished to perfection. The portfolio of Mercedes-Benz Style includes products in the areas of mobility, lifestyle, sport and interior design.
Ameluna is the result of a collaboration between Artemide and Mercedes-Benz Style, combining the lighting competence of Artemide with the distinctive style of Mercedes-Benz. Ameluna features cutting-edge technology through optoelectric innovation and the ability to interact with the surrounding environment in a digital dialogue. It can be controlled from an app that can memorize the lighting experience.
Ameluna produces a seemingly mystical light, like that of bioluminescent creatures. The bottom edge of the lamp contains an extremely flexible printed circuit board injected with 288 LEDs to provide optimum illumination. The light radiates downward and is dispersed throughout the transparent body, causing the entire lamp to glow and provide optimum illumination of the space. Suspended only by three ultrathin wires, the lamp appears to float in space.
The name, Ameluna, is a combination of Artemide (A), Mercedes-Benz (Me), and Luna, the Italian word for moon. Like the moon is lit by the sun, an extra spotlight situated above the lamp is the source of its wide range of color effects.
Ameluna classic is available now and Ameluna RGB is arriving in Summer 2017.
