LED blown glass table lamp
Methacrylate, Blown Glass
Empatia is inspired by the association between the great glass-blowing tradition and the LED technology of Artemide. High interest in the expression potentials of this material resulted into co-operation with master glass blowers to gain full control of the special suppleness of Venetian glass and to work on the balance between surface and light, between subtle densities and transparencies. Hence clear, pure craft objects, each of them unique in all respects. Transparency and opacity are wisely dosed to obtain a glass that reflects light without glaring and without losing efficiency. Hence optical device, whose heart is a high-performance LED-based light engine created separately from the glass emission body in favor of higher thermal efficiency and performance. Light is controlled with maximum yield and driven towards the glass diffuser through a transparent pipe with a very low absorption coefficient.
Following the evolution of LED technology, Empatia Mobile* offers both mobility and high lighting performance, comparable to that of traditionally powered lamps. Everyone can freely create his or her light in space, wherever this is. Portable does not only mean that light can be taken where it couldn’t go before, but it also opens up a new flexible vision of more traditional lighting scenarios and ambiances. Independence, high quality and the opportunity to manage light emission ensure that these appliances are real tools for a daily lighting experience. Freedom is designed for the individual, for a personal, confined space that can also be extended to communal places. The light emitted from the mains electricity can design flexible atmospheres that are able to adapt to the ever-changing organization of a space.
