THE HUMAN LIGHT – ARTEMIDE PHILOSOPHY
The Human Light is Artemide’s guiding philosophy, its way to imagine and design light, a revolutionary intuition that radically changed the way of conceiving lighting equipment based on man and his well-being.
Artemide’s products are much more than highly refined design objects, ensuring a top technical performance – they are objects born from man’s experience to satisfy man’s needs.
Since the 1990s, with the launch of the The Human Light philosophy, promoted by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Artemide has changed the way products are conceived and developed. The guiding idea is to start from people’s needs in terms of light, and understand first and foremost how to respond to these needs in the different spaces and stages of life.
With The Human Light Artemide intends to illuminate not only the space, but also a man’s activities and needs inside a space. The goal is both simple and extremely complicated: to turn light into a means to improve the quality of life.
The Human Light means placing the competence of Artemide at the service of man and responding to the need for flexibility and adaptability with the utmost visual accuracy and the minimum consumption of environmental resources.
