Among the opted products Ixa by Foster+Partners, and Vine Light by BIG
Two very different collections share the principles of Artemide‘s Human & Responsible Light. Transversal elements where sustainability is the basis of the project: starting from the light element shared by the different versions, they constitute a family of elements able to illuminate any space by flexibly following the needs of light. In both of them, optoelectronic innovation is combined with design and production know-how, shaping products with timeless lines.
Ixa combines an adjustable spherical head with rods and counterweights that allow light to be brought into space and freely move to define functional, dynamic lighting scenarios. “Inspired by Alexander Calder’s dynamic sculptures, the design interprets the idea of ‘elegant balance’ through precision engineering.”
Vine Light is a new generation of LED task lights from which a family of solutions is born to bring light into any space. A constant section of only 16 mm in diameter outlines the structure and encloses all the optoelectronic and mechanical elements. What appears as continuity is a succession of components with different functions and features, translating technological complexity into simplicity and freedom.
Vine Light and Ixa will be on display until November 19 at the ADI Design Museum together with the best products and services from all sectors of Italian design that will compete together in the 2022 selection at the XXVIII edition of the Compasso D’Oro, which will be held in 2024 on the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the award, born in 1954 from an idea by Gio Ponti.
Artemide has already received numerous awards from the ADI Compasso d’Oro Award, won by the company with several products:
