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.


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.

light art

The llight-art 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.

El Japonez Interlomas

Huixquilucan Edo, Mexico City, 2018

The Japonez Interlomas Restaurant located in the Central Interlomas shopping center, in the state of Mexico, is a Japanese food restaurant with a clear commitment to design. The great height of the main dining room and the use of natural materials such as wood and brass give a unique character to the space.

The lighting design aimed to enhancement the ceiling “tiles”, 90% wood and 10% brass, and at the same time to create direct light towards the dining areas to allow the necessary flexibility when moving or relocating tables. The solutions was to design a special luminaire suspended from the ceiling, made of brass, which provides both indirect and direct light.
