Carlotta de Bevilacqua
Architect, designer and above all humanist, Carlotta de Bevilacqua has been a force in contemporary lighting since the 1980’s. A pioneer in LED research and implementation, she created the concept “The Human Light” in which lighting encourages not only the well-being of those who live, work and interact with it, but also the planet. As interested in science of light as the sensory experience, de Bevilacqua seeks to create synergy between products and users through accessible, experimental design. A life-force at Artemide for nearly 4 decades, in addition to her own studio she oversees Danese Milano creating minimal, yet elegant, products which further complement the built environment. In addition to widespread recognition for her work, in 2011, she received a Red Dot Design Award for the Algoritmo and Copernico.
Employed by Artemide for nearly 10 years. Laura Pessoni is an Italian designer who has worked closely with Carlotta de Bevilacqua on interior and design projects such as the Null Vector light released in 2013.
Multi-purpose product suited for all living and work spaces that works on three different local and space perception levels: light, perception and acoustics.
Light defines the physical space by modulating the relations between light and shadow and controlling the white light color temperature.
The colors selected give a sense of harmony through the perception of the pure color of the elements that make up the products.
The sound absorbing surface supports 12 adjustable LED units to ensure maximum light management via small spotlights connected to the surface.
Like a moon crater, the product’s surface is characterized by several round 3-dimensional, hollow, crater-like shapes that capture sound.
The varying thickness of the surface allows for various frequencies of sound to be absorbed.
-Driver housing in polycarbonate.
-Platform in technopolymer.
Multi-purpose product works on three levels: light, perception and acoustics.
