BJARKE INGELS GROUP
BIG is a group of architects, designers and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development with offices in Copenhagen and New York City. BIG has A reputation for completing buildings that are as programmatically and technically innovative as they are cost and resource conscious. BIG’s recently completed projects including the Danish Maritime Museum (2013), Superkilen (2012), the 8 House (2010). BIG’s first project was in the Copenhagen Harbor Bath (2003), an urban space that transformed the area of Islands Brygge from a rundown harborfront to the recreational and social center of the city. Current projects under construction include: West 57th, a 750-unit residential building in Manhattan; the Vancouver House tower in Vancouver; the LEGO Brand House in Denmark; the Faroe Islands Education Center; the Shenzhen Energy Mansion in China; and a Wasteto-Energy plant in Copenhagen that will double as a ski slope.
Alphabet of light system is a lighting language that continues to grow with new curved elements so it can be developed with increasing freedom throughout space. It is a basic principle that generates an open system implementing just a handful of basic modules.
Thanks to specific geometric proportions, these modules can be combined together to form endless lighting structures, from the most elemental to the most complex, both linear and curved. The BIG idea is combined with Artemide's optoelectronic expertise to give rise to an innovative construction principle that casts continuous and comfortable light.
It is a minimal presence that conceals ultra-sophisticated optoelectronic and patented mechanical innovation as well as ground-breaking control. The system can be controlled using the Artemide App to create freedom both in geometric design and in the definition of dynamic performance levels, which can be programmed or modified in real time.
