Artemide: Three Most Wanted Designs
Artemide Tolomeo Classic table lamp. Designed in 1987 by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina this award winning lamp was created to oppose the Memphis movement. The result is a stripped back form, concentrating wholly on the needs of the consumer. Artemide’s motto is “The human light” – demonstrated here perfectly by re-designing an object to further improve the quality of life.Tolomeo desk lamp continues to be a firm favourite among designers, professionals and enthusiasts alike. The adjustable, directional light enables the user to have complete control over their lighting requirements, whether that is for work or ambience. The vast Tolomeo range is expanding as the years go on, with different outputs, orientations and sizes there is one for any situation.
Artemide Tizio Classic table lamp, designed in 1972 by Richard Sapper. This iconic architectural light went on to win the prestigious Compasso D’oro award in 1979, just as the Tolomeo would 10 years later. Sapper was one of the first to create a lamp with halogen bulbs, with low voltage being carried up the arms without a wire in sight. This produced a simplistic, minimal aesthetic with high functionality. Sapper designed the counterweighted arms to allow users full control over where the light source is directed. Artemide Tizio exists in a permanent installation in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art for its contributions to the design industry.
Artemide Pirce Suspension, designed in 2008 by Giuseppe Maurizio Scutella. A multi-award winning design formed of a single piece of aluminium which gracefully spirals downward. The light source is directed upwards through the centre of the ascending form. This creates a very theatrical display of light and shadow, adding drama to a wide range of interior designs. Since its inception, Pirce has become extremely popular amongst architects and homeowners. With its wide variations of sizes available, Artemide Pirce can add huge impact to a commercial space and transform the atmosphere of a home environment.

ELLE Decoration Fought the Fakes and Won!
Elle Decoration’s hottest article this month looks at the battle of copycat designers in the industry. In 2012 ELLE Decoration launched their ‘Equal Rights for Design’ petition which stated Britain as the designer knock-off capital of Europe.
They took their campaign to the government and won, bringing copyright protection inline with other creative disciplines such as music and literature.
Despite the victory the law will not come into place until January 2017 giving the faux designer’s time to sell their stock.
So what does this mean for the British design market? Now the original designers will get the recognition that they deserve and gain a copyright protection similar to other creative disciplines after their passing.
Below are the real deals of the most popular ripped off classics!

Vibia Puck & Puck Wall Art
The Puck Wall Light and Wall Art collection is created by Jordi Vilardell. The collection is one which expresses light using circular forms and by using a LED source it creates a warm, even and glare-free light. The wall light features a matt triple opal blown glass diffuser and be can customised into a wide range of lighting compositions which are superimposed over one another to create a personalised wall art. The Puck Wall’s versatility means it works well either on it’s on or groped together.
Muuto have been adding to their accessory and furniture collections and we love it all! Featured above are the Framed Mirrors and the Five Pouf. The Framed collection is a series of mirrors in two sizes and three colour versions. The mirrors can be hung either on their own or in groups to create an almost art-like mirror installation on the wall, they are well suited to be used in bathrooms and other wet rooms.
The Five Pouf which is designed by Anderssen & Voll evokes visions of neatly ploughed fields. The Five Pouf’s rows of quilted tailored material make it versatile and easily adaptable to multiple settings. The pouf’s pentagon form is the ideal shape to accompaniment any sofa, to be used as an extra seat for a guest or to simply liven up a dull corner.
Artemide Meteorite Table
The Meteorite is a collection which has five different versions: table, table with stem, floor, wall/ceiling and suspension. The Meteorite Stem Table 15 and 35 feature a chromed aluminium and steel stem with a blown glass diffuser. The diffuser is made with a double layer of artistic glass which is obtained through a ‘stampo a fermo’ mould-blowing technique.
Moooi Coppelia Chandelier
We’ve already featured this chandelier but we love it so much we’re showing it off again! The Coppélia design is a new interpretation of a classic chandelier created by established Japanese designer Arihiro Miyake. The design was inspired by a ballerina’s sinuous moment and creates a delicate image in the air. Powered by a low voltage current, the design has no need for additional wires.
Youthful is the most appropriate adjective to describe this collection of hanging lamps designed by Benjamin Hubert. The inspiration for the design came from roof tiles and they were also the idea behind the shape of the single elements which are attached by hand. The scales are made in a semi-rigid rubbery material which can be machine washed at 30 degrees. The indoor lamp collection is available in five different shapes and sizes and can be hung either using a cable or fitted directly to the ceiling rose.

The very latest from Artemide
New collections are now available from Artemide on our website, some of which were presented at events such as Euroluce and Clerkenwell Design Week. Table lamp ‘Le Petite’ is an architectural lamp with the shade balancing at a curious angle on a tilted stem, a re-imagined design of the traditional table lamp.
This design is available in three colours: white, black and red/white, it is currently on special offer for Christmas. Each lamp also comes with its own presentation box for this limited time only!
New additions to the Meteorite family, joining the current sizes: 15 and 35. There is now a larger 48 size available as a table lamp, suspension or ceiling/wall light.
Artemide Vigo Wall and Suspension is now available, taking inspiration from the classical conical shape but creating aesthetic contrast by using two cones of glass. The outer cone makes an invisible shade effect, the second directs and diffuses the light.
A new collection called Fiamma is a lighting element designed to industry standard, but the aesthetics were intended for an everyday environment such as home or offices. The collection is available in aluminium or black, consisting of a table lamp, wall lamp, floor lamp and suspension light.
Unterlinden is a low cost energy efficient LED light source, with a polished aluminium interior to reflect the light successfully from the concentrated lens. The shade has a textured antique appearance available in aluminium or brass, creating a glamorous old fashioned style.
