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.

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.
BD BarcelonaBarcelona, Spain 2011
The lighting concept of the new BD Barcelona Design showroom-gallery attempts to improve the display of the collection of design objects through projected shadow. It illuminates the pieces as artwork, generating a contrasted exhibition environment.
Thus, the communication of the exposed element is more suggestive. The lighting takes into account the object and its immediate surroundings. The background is prepared to receive the exhibited item as part of it. The intangible image of the object, in negative, is expressed as an extension of the object itself. It takes shape on floor and platforms in a medium grey color. The lighting system consists of transversal rails placed in a constant pace both in the outside and in the inside.
Light and shadow create a composition of ordered forms and convey a sense of harmony that work together in a sense of unity to bring a new edge to the lighting design concept.
