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.
Design Hub BarcelonaBarcelona , Spain 2014
Barcelona's design museum stands in the new eclectic spot of Barcelona city in Poblenou. It’s a contemporary building that consists of four parts: the upper and the lower ground, the exterior and the interior.
The arrangement of luminance and illumination of architectural elements and surfaces enhance the interplay among all parts of the museum, creating an interactive ambience in the city. Natural light reaches the galleries in the lower level, through a surrounding trench and six skylights, interacting with the interior luminaires, which are linearly arranged. The interior lighting in the lower level is adaptable to different events and exhibitions through changes of color and motion, lighting heightens visitors’ sensory experience, while guiding them.
Design Museum’s active involvement in different sectors of design is well portrayed through the dynamic play on light in all parts of the building. Lighting design also adds to an industrial atmosphere in keeping with the neighborhood.
