imagines the light of the future with Sistemi, a collection consisting of the Endless
lighting solutions. Each product has its own life but can also be integrated with the others.
Sistemi offers the possibility of composing light in space with freedom, spatiality, and absolute creativity. Technology helps break down boundaries. The materials are intangible, almost invisible. The conductors are hidden and camouflaged. Thin webs of filaments conduct and design light.
'Until now we have sought to make the light source invisible, allowing the light itself to speak - light and all that must be illuminated’, says Davide Groppi. 'We imagined our fixtures as letters of an imaginary alphabet that could be used to write stories of light. We transformed and dematerialized light-objects to make them disappear so that light becomes pure emotion, creating patterns that explode in space'.
Sistemi takes the challenge one step further in the search for the essence of light that can dance freely in space.
Sistemi is on digital tracks, with ultra-light almost invisible wires, modular strips that can be positioned limitlessly on stairs, windows and glass panels.
Circuits that close. Accent lighting. Ultra-light diodes.
A sign made of different lines and weights with the linearity of a pen that draws with light rather than ink.
Sistemi, like all projects by Davide Groppi, gets its inspiration from art. Like Fontana’s cuts and Mirò’s crazy tangled maze of dots and lines. Or the graphic clarity of Bruno Munari and the austere creativity of the Berlin Bauhaus. References for a complete sensory experience, in which light paints space in a festival of freedom. Sistemi is light that learns from art.
'Endless is the backbone of our project, a digital track, an adhesive conductive strip that allows you to position light wherever you want it.
Infinito is a blade of indirect and diffused light that engraves the fourth wall. An homage to Fontana’s “Spatial Concepts”. Painting on a wall. A gash in the canvas.
Inspired by the legendary superhero of the same name, Flash is designed for large spaces. The direct and diffused light is dynamic, fast and vibrant. A linear shard of clean light hangs between two points.
Ohm is our accent light. Four diodes connected to just one, ultra-light single-pole cable. The 12-meter long thin wire is modular, made to repeat and multiply, creating webs of ultra-light, free spots, suspended to design space'.

This is Sistemi. Light that becomes an infinite galaxy of points and lines without boundaries or limits. Endless.
On the occasion of Milano Design City, the Spazio Esperienze Milano in via Medici 13 is renewed: the lighting solutions Sistemi integrated in space compose light with freedom, spatiality and absolute creativity.
