Carlotta de Bevilacqua
Architect, designer and above all humanist, Carlotta de Bevilacqua has been a force in contemporary lighting since the 1980’s. A pioneer in LED research and implementation, she created the concept “The Human Light” in which lighting encourages not only the well-being of those who live, work and interact with it, but also the planet. As interested in science of light as the sensory experience, de Bevilacqua seeks to create synergy between products and users through accessible, experimental design. A life-force at Artemide for nearly 4 decades, in addition to her own studio she oversees Danese Milano creating minimal, yet elegant, products which further complement the built environment. In addition to widespread recognition for her work, in 2011, she received a Red Dot Design Award for the Algoritmo and Copernico.
An LED luminaire of molded transparent polycarbonate and a textured cable, the optical unit generates broad luminous beams with very high yields and a mild light scattering effect.
Geometric interplay of the reflector’s external layer of 90-degree prisms with inner micro-lens surfaces provides even light distribution for desired angles.
