Gople Lamp is the latest product in the ongoing collaboration between Artemide and Bjarke Ingels Group. Gople is crafted of a pill shape, handblown glass diffuser.

A powerful LED is housed within the glass, combining next-generation technology with ancient techniques and material savoir-faire.
The diffuser is available in three finishes: crystal glass with a white gradient, transparent glass with a silver or copper metallic finish. Each option adds a stylish and sophisticated touch to any interior.
