our works

artec3 carries out projects through 3 departments: lighting design, lab and lights. We have arranged our works in the following categories to guide you on a transversal tour through the most relevant projects of artec3.

lighting design

artec3 lighting design is dedicated to developing high-quality architectural lighting projects through close, proactive relationships with the design teams and clients. Shaping light, we create innovative lighting designs that enhance the architecture and its contents, while achieving the program and sustainable goals. Take a look to our most relevant projects.

lights

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.

lab

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.

Atelier Arranz Bravo

Barcelona, Spain 2012


The atelier of painter Eduardo Arranz-Bravo is located in Collserola Natural Park and receives light primarily from a large skylight.

artec3 daylight analysis compared the impact of natural light working under a north-facing and south-facing skylight situations. The painter´s goal was to work with natural light as long as possible, so the study proved that a south-facing skylight was more appropriate due to the most profitable use of natural light in both summer and winter.

In addition, higher levels of light reflected from materials (luminance) would create less contrast and a greater feeling of environmental comfort.
