What's New at Artemide

Q: What’s New at Artemide?

A: The Ipno pendant light by Michele de Lucchi

IPNO combines tradition and innovation, manufacturing savoir faire and optical competence into a harmonious shape. Designed by Michele De Lucchi, Ipno is a suspension lighting fixture with a magical effect. Its transparent body shapes light using a high-level emission control, obtained through its soft geometry.

Inside the blown crystal glass lies an innovative optical unit that directs and concentrated light on the glazed part of the bottom surface to diffuse and open it up with a soft emission. The glazed surface conceals the inner workings of the optical device to prevent glare.

The optical unit works according to a Total Internal Reflection principle to direct the emission. It comes to life when light passes through the material, but only a minimum rate of light is emitted into the environment in a diffused and uncontrolled manner.

Artemide is one of Toronto's premier sources of interior & exterior lighting.

Artemide's showroom is located in the King East - Distillery Design District at 5 Mill Street.

Artemide products are also available at Ernestomeda, Kiosk, Quasi Modo Modern Furniture, italinteriors, Casa di Luce, Studio 1112, Dark Tools and Palazzetti,
