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.
Corporativo KomplexPuebla, Mexico 2018
Designed by the architect Fernando Valdez, Corporate Komplex is a unique project in Puebla that breaks with the established canons in terms of corporate and commercial plazas in the city.
The lighting design concept consists of generating different environments through different types of lighting integrated into the architectural space. Like any urban space in Mexico, security is a major issue. Thus, a uniform lighting was proposed in the parking lots with the right levels of security, but at the same time considering the visual comfort, complementing the general lighting system located in 9-meter poles, with the lighting of the trees in the center, as well as access to the interior parking.
The micro perforated facades of the buildings take on a major role at night, providing luminance in the vertical plane that give these elements a special character. Currently, still under construction, the glass facade will be a dynamic media facade in the future, while the luminaires and the control system are being installed. The result is a dynamic, comforting illumination.
