It’s been almost a week since Salone del Mobile has ended, but that doesn’t mean that there are no more news about it. And one of the incredible things that happened during Euroluce 2017 was the presentation of a new lamp collection for Artemide, by Neri & Hu! What’s so great about it? Well, let’s just say they may or may not look like adorable birds!
During this year’s Milan Design Week, the design duo Neri & Hu have translated Artemide’s philosophy of ‘the human light’ into a collection of very unique lighting designs. In the collection, we can find pendant, floor and table lamps, which are inspired by the image of birds resting on scaffolding.
The designs are all very simple and minimalist. They still maintain, however, the sense of a nature-inspired design and you can definitely see the resemblance and where the designers got their inspiration from.
The designers wanted to imprint into their lamps the delightful scenes of street life that they encounter daily in their hometown, Shanghai. With two types of birds, the lamp collection Artemide has an adjustable track system, as well as various extensions, resulting in endless possibilities to configure the light.
With its elegant lines and minimal shapes, ‘hanzi’ pays homage to both the urban and the natural, the rigid and the organic, while injecting a sense of playfulness into the design.
Made of a black structure with brushed brass, the set is the ideal addition for any type of home.
