Mario Cucinella for Artemide
16/07/2020 - Flexia is the new Artemide system designed by Mario Cucinella. “Flexia is a play on perceptions, between the visible which is material and colour, and the invisible which becomes light”. Inspired by papiroflexia, the art of papyrus-folding, Flexia is reminiscent of the Japanese art of origami.
 
They share a common vision aimed at improving the quality of everyday life while respecting people and the environment. Accordingly, attention to detail is coupled with simple principles, while respect for the well-being of those who actually use spaces becomes a key characteristic determined largely by the quality of light.

The acoustic panel section controls reverberation, absorbing the sound waves reflected in the environment, whilst the patented Discovery technology, the result of research by Ernesto Gismondi into the quality of the light that animates the transparent emitting surface, generates a diffused emission of light that is both even and comfortable.
 
Flexia’s flexible wings are equipped with a rotation mechanism that goes from 0 to 15° and 30° meaning that the many possible inclinations and positions can help calibrate interaction with the environment; shape, materials and density are selected to work mainly on the frequencies of human speech; the result is beauty that derives from a parametric and functional intelligence.

The Discovery patented technology applied here in fact produces a diffused, uniform, comfortable emission that also respects UGR standards for use in work spaces in any installation position. It is a technical performance expressed through emotional perception and the magical quality of transparency, expressing Artemide’s ability to look beyond traditional concepts and interpret technology in a way that is beneficial to our well-being. Flexia develops through the visual space in a game of optical perceptions: when switched off, the lamp is ethereal and invisible; on, it becomes material, transforming into a solid made of light.
 
Flexia shows how the sustainability of a building can also be achieved starting from the very elements that animate the spaces; it has a reduced energy footprint, in fact, high efficiency and flexible control for environmentally-friendly use thanks to the possibility of controlling the emission with the Artemide App which produces environmental quality and encourages users to adopt increasingly conscious use of light. This goes hand-in-hand with a careful choice of materials; in particular, the sound-absorbent part is developed using recycled fibres: the external fabric comes 100% from PET bottles, whilst the internal panel is obtained from waste materials.

Flexia has been designed to improve the quality of the environments, generating an efficient combination for all lighting needs; its light, versatile design fits transversally into all contexts in which acoustic and visual well-being needs to be assured. The juxtaposition of multiple modules can shape environments based on the principles of perfectly balanced light and sound.
