Born in Milan in 1959 by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza and brought to life alongside the Memphis Design Movement. The history of contemporary lighting is punctuated with Artemide creations beginning with 1960’s Alfa, 1967’s Eclisse designed by Vico Magistretti to today’s collaborations with Philippe Rahm, Ross Lovegrove and Tapio Rosenius.
Lighting The Way For Sustainability
An early proponent of LED technology, Artemide is committed to eco-sustainability through design and production seeking to minimize energy consumption and waste through a product’s life cycle.
Existing at the nexus of Italian industrial design and craftsmanship, Artemide is proud to manufacture lighting in Italy, France, Hungary and the United States. Firmly in line with Italian tradition, Artemide makes their own glass utilizing the knowledge and techniques of centuries. Using both time-tested traditions as well as cutting-edge technology, Artemide innovates through sustainable design.
