The light consists of 12 self-similar modular elements that interlock into a highly complex yet simple and familiar looking three-dimensional form. The light can be endlessly extended and used in a variety of conventional topological settings. A strong additional LED in the chrome-polished die-cast top unit further diffuses the light emitted by the lower light source.
The emerging design plays with fluid geometries to define a new light condition in space, casting intersecting light and shadow onto walls and surfaces in a very three dimensional way. Together with the other products of the 2012 Artemide collection the New Nature reflects my current interest and research in using self-repetitive but highly informed and functional modules leading to informal generative designs.
Materials: chrome-plated steel base. Lamp body made of thermoplastic material.
The main indirect emission LEDs are positioned in the upper part of the lamp.
The secondary emission ambient LEDs are positioned on the base and design the interior of the column bringing out its three-dimensionality.
The two switch controls can be managed separately.
