Our lights emerge from the experience developed in our lighting designs projects and the study of the function and emotion of the light interacting with space and people. artec3 Studio, by merging research, technology and taking care of details, has developed new concepts of light. Our designs are produced by recognized manufacturers and have been internationally awarded.
Enjoy a selection of our luminaires designs and bespoke lights.
The lab department has explored the most interactive, social, artistic and exciting aspects of the light as a channel to express intangible contents. This enables us to shape our perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light. The artec3 lab, in continuous artistic experimentation with light, has evolved to summalab. Find more about it.
Agbar SquareBarcelona, Spain 2011
The purpose of the lighting design of the Agbar square was to obtain uniform illumination of the surroundings of the tower for security reasons, without contaminating the lighting composition of the Agbar tower itself. Another premise of the project was that the lighting system should be integrated into the existing architectural and landscape approach in the plaza.
The tree was the element of greater visual perception in the low level of the square, giving the formal presence of the tower and structuring the place. The lighting system was chosen in organic forms, located in the flowerbeds between the trees forming a random composition that extends to different heights along the plaza following its sinuous route.
At the level of energy efficiency, the lamps used for ceramic metal halides of warm color temperature of 35w and 70w according to heights of 5m, 7m and 9m provide the necessary level by regulations and a high energy classification of the place.
