Artemide is proud to announce that LA LINEA, the latest collaboration with Bjarke Ingels Group, won in the Lighting category for its concept and design.

La Linea generates an even and comfortable high-efficiency diffused light through its patented optical unit. Its utmost formal simplicity reveals complex optical research, combined with savoir-faire with respect to materials and manufacturing in designing a high-performance lighting solution.  Its patented section brings together several types of intelligence connected with optical, as well as material, mechanical, manufacturing principles and sustainable values, which take care of each individual aspect of the product’s life stages.

It can be folded to minimize the packaging bulk, ensures very high efficiency and easy maintenance, and is bound to last a very long time for its multi-purpose and flexible character  With its minimal footprint in space, it can disappear by adhering to the architecture or become highly expressive by folding three-dimensionally in space and designing soft or linear graphic elements that set the pace of the surrounding environment.

La Linea turns light into an ideal fixture for outdoor spaces, architectures, parks, or public and urban areas  to requalify common spaces, create social and engaging landscapes, and promote relations between people and their surroundings.

“A light mark that seems to float weightless, a graphic sign made of pure light freely wandering in space. Bjarke Ingels and his team did not simply shape a lamp, but developed a new way of thinking about lighting: a luminous, soft, foldable strip that unwinds uninterrupted, without visible signs of modules joints. LA LINEA is suitable for any application in any weather and environmental conditions.”

The jury – including 60 international architecture studios, communication agencies, journalists, and architecture photographers – assessed over 700 product applications from 400 international brands

LA LINEA will be available in North America in 2020.  Stay tuned for updates on product availability.
