n 1960, Ernesto Gismondi – engineer, designer and “enlightened”businessman – established one of the most recognised companies around, which has changed the concept of lighting: Artemide.  The company’s production boasts a number of iconic designs which not only are they useful but can be found in some of the most important museums of modern art. Eclisse, Tizio, Tolomeo are just a few of the successful products recognised with the most prestigious award in the world of design: the Compasso D’oro prize.  Driven by an ongoing commitment to the environment and  sustainability, Artemide’s producs ranges from indoor to outdoor and office use. Since the nineties, in partnership with Carlotta de Bevilacqua, the company has developed a new philosophical approach to lighting design: The Human Light. This approach aims at improving people’s lives by considering light as a source of wellness.
