New Lighting Fields now online!
With the 2018 edition of “Lighting Fields”
Artemide presents its activities, its research and a selection of new products.
The 2018 edition of Lighting Fields opens with a conversation between Pierluigi Nicolin and Ernesto Gismondi, founder of Artemide and one of the principal architects of the brand’s success on the international design scene. The meeting took place at the showroom on Via Manzoni in Milan.
Artemide takes stock of its activities and its research and presents a selection of its new products. In doing this it aims to highlight the results of the group’s various initiatives, a yearly summary of which now requires the publication of a proper book able to contain an illustration of all the appropriate comments.
“I would like to introduce the new series of issues of Lighting Fields—which have now taken on the format of a sizeable annual volume with a hardcover binding—with a personal contribution from you, in order to take stock of the situation and give the right weight to the event. I’d also like to look at your personal responsibilities with regard to the fortunes of Artemide, and so I am inviting you to talk about the fundamental aspects of your current philosophy, even in the knowledge that many of Artemide’s characteristics can be perceived from the outside at first glance, however superficial. “ Pierluigi Nicolin
“We are doing all this without forgetting the needs of production. We want to go on being a company that works for an expanding and more demanding international market.
We have not renounced research into form and the satisfaction that stems from design in order to continue bringing out the kind of new products for which Italian culture is renowned.” Ernesto Gismondi
