An archetypal lampshade balanced on a tilted stem. Simple elements, exquisitely combined into an amazing geometric composition, recall basic forms matched with different materials for technological reasons. Despite its plain and simple look, this lamp clearly conveys the skills of Artemide. The lampshade is a lightweight plastic volume closed by two diffusers that produce a pleasant soft direct and indirect light. The joint connects the lampshade with the aluminium stem on a minimal support. These simple elements are combined into a plain and elegant object, where the tilted stem is counterbalanced by the lampshade’s volume.

The bestselling appliance Nur, an iconic product from the Artemide collection, is restyled in a new acoustic version. The bell-shaped body is designed to mark the boundaries through light, as well as with ambient sound control. The special material absorbs sound waves and reduces their reverberation time, the body’s geometry enhances the material’s properties by trapping and absorbing sound within. The selected colours, matched with a white inner surface, valorize light. Perfect environmental quality is thus obtained.

“Pan reviews the concept of the classical reading lamp, which is formally and functionally adjusted to modern-day needs, by reintroducing a few formal details, such as the green diffuser, of the famous old style icon for elegant and exquisite locations.” Maurizio Scutellà
Pan is a remake of the classical lawyer’s lamp of the 1930s. Its geometry is reproduced in a streamlined version and its technology is updated.Starting from an iconic design, all the elements are simplified and given a new functional role related to the introduction of innovative technologies and advanced optical skills.The classical green diffuser becomes a carefully designed optical unit that conveys and emits the light of a LED strip fitted on its top based on refraction principles.

Spectral Light

“The lamp is made of 12 light wavelengths emitted by 12 LEDs of different semiconductors corresponding to 12 wavelengths peaks perceived by the living species we have chosen: human, dog, cat and plants. To avoid any unnecessary risks to people with macular degeneration related to age, we don’t emit short blue-violet wavelengths under a minimum of 470 nm, because the wavelengths between 415 nm and 455nm (and mainly at 430 nm) are dangerous to the retina of these people with AMD. Wavelengths which ultimately make up the lamp are therefore to humans 470 nm (blue), 534nm (green), 564nm (amber). For the dog 470 nm (blue) and 555nm (lime). For the cat 500nm (cyan) and 556 nm (green) and for plants 470nm (blue) and 662 nm (deep red). Then we group some of the 12 wavelengths between animal and plant species that are close.

We then multiply the number of LEDs of some lengths proportionally to the spectral intensity of sunlight in order to replicate natural sunlight quality when all LEDs are on. A special «night»program is proposed, keeping only the wavelengths above 550nm. The convex shape of the upper part of the globe allows to direct the 12 wavelengths lights which are then transmitted by transparent glass rays towards the low opaline surface of the glass globe to converge their lights and colors to be mixed and homogenized to produce the white light spectrum of the sun’s natural light by addition and synthesis of colors.” Philippe Rahm Architects
