Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities. That is why Artemide's attention today is concentrated on the concept of the context of life, understood as a specific microenvironment in which an event occurs where one or more persons are the protagonist, every context of life can be associated with different light contexts, or the different atmospheres of light characterized by the activities that, at various moments of the day, have us as protagonists, starting from these contexts and the lighting conditions that characterize them, Artemide proposes products capable of meeting people's multiple needs and offering the light performance characteristics most suited to each moment of life, it is light that is flexible and adaptable, which produces the optimum visual precision, and consumes the minimum environmental resources, it is Artemide light.

The love of my life
RenoGales from Washington, DC
It was love at first sight when I first saw this lamp in a magazine. Fast forward years (10??) later and I finally found the nerve to buy it (I don't know about you, but I normally don't shell out nearly $500 for a lamp... And it's orange?!). It arrived on my doorstep one day, and my first thought was, um, that's a big box. Then I opened it and my second thought was, that is a lot of orange plastic. Then I started having buyer's remorse, and thought, well, I could use it as a really big & orange & expensive salad bowl. But then I added the bulbs, I plugged it in, and it is...perfection incarnate. The glow is sublime. The shape is resplendent. What I love most about it is that it doesn't take itself seriously, know what I mean? It sits happily on top of a $100 dresser from Ikea in our living room, but feels right at home...
