The more the planet becomes urban, the more we appreciate the value of natural spaces.‎ The cities with the highest quality of life are those that were visionary enough to keep portions of untouched nature within their foot print and transform them into public spaces.‎ Forest than can become parks, rivers that can become pools, hills that can become viewpoints or beaches that can become promenade measure the capacity of a city to provide the right environment for their citizens.‎ The problem is that the forces that govern nature and modern urban life, even if guided by good will, tend to pull in opposite directions.‎ If we want to access a hill, we erode its slopes with roads.‎ If we want to prevent a river’s flooding, we alter its basin’s permeability.‎ If we want to illuminate it to make it safe, we invade it with posts and cable.‎ One of the strongest intrusions in the natural order (and yet one of that remains almost unnoticed) is the disappearance of darkness in our cities.‎ In the attempt to make parks safe, we not only invade them with posts and cables.‎ But we alter forever the circadian rhythm that is crucial for the existence of species, both animal and vegetal.‎ Our project for Artemide is an attempt to reconcile the needs of the natural and the urban environment.‎ Our strategy is twofold: on one hand is to design a light for the public space that when not in use can be as imperceptible as possible; light without a lamp.‎ On the other hand is to take advantage of different types of sensors so that light appears just when needed, light only on demand.‎ For “O” we envision a series of discs that interfere as little as possible an existing landscape, but that when activated by people’s motion, they illuminate the adjacent space for only a limited amount of time.‎ Darkness and Disappearance will be the contribution of “O” to nature and public spaces.‎
