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.
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.
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.
Colonial MadridMadrid, Spain 2019
The real estate company Colonial was looking to change its branding in their offices in order to make them warmer, more contemporary, giving a sense of intelligent design and quality close to their customers. The refurbishment project of the Madrid office on the prestigious Paseo de la Castellana required a change of materials for the interior design: using quality wood, metal and micro-cement in clear tones, a large number of decorative designer lamps were used. As a result, a change of image which linked to the new branding was achieved.
We sought a high level of visual comfort and an optimal level of lighting functionality for the space. The challenge was to produce lighting which would both conform to the current lighting legislation and energy efficiency and at once create a space that was subtly domestic, more comfortable and (homely) inviting.
