Vitruvio and Interweave: Light Takes Shape
16/05/2019 - Mechanical intelligence turns into an expression of beauty in Vitruvio by Atelier Oï and Interweave by Pallavi Dean, the new collections that Artemide presented this year at Euroluce.



A thin frame and a blown-glass diffuser are the main features of Vitruvio project. “These two opposite elements – a thin supporting one and a soft one working as an encompassing cocoon – are perfectly integrated.”, says Armand Louis.
 
Three metal rods are introduced into the sphere by means of an ingenious mechanism inspired by the clockmaking art, thus creating the frame that supports the glass globe. The mobile rods open up inside the diffuser and, as a result of the utmost precision of the geometric joints and of balanced weights, support the glass sphere, both when turned upwards in the table and floor versions, and when turned downwards in the suspension version.

Function and look perfectly match also in the diffuser. The transparent glass is blown into a shape that derives from optical intelligence. The embossed horizontal stripes conceal the source from view, mitigate glaring, and ensure more even light diffusion. The appliance combines tradition and innovation, the old savoir-faire of the glass-blowing art approached with a future-oriented technological outlook.

Interweave is a flexible system that leaves everyone free to design their own environmental quality. "For me, as for Artemide, man is the essence of every space. The main protagonist of the design plot. We want users to become the 'authors' of the space they inhabit. This system wants to encourage interaction with space and with the human beings that occupy it.” Pallavi Dean

Suspended cylinders fixed to the ceiling or to the wall, guide a flexible LED light line, allowing to freely model it following soft and unexpected geometries. The light connects the different elements of the system, evoking a theme of connections and relationships: "it is a light that celebrates connections, the intersection of countries, cultures and creativity as a unique source of energy." Pallavi Dean

The cylindrical bodies can have the sole function of supporting the line of light or become the base for spotlights, intelligences and devices such as speakers and sensors. Interweave defines a lexicon of elements to compose an engaging and surprising experience, a new way of interacting with light in space.
