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.
EnigmaBarcelona , Spain 2016
The Enigma project arose from the concept of generating an enigmatic yet active space where limits are blurred through reflections, luminous densities, chiaroscuros and color, so that the experience intensifies and focuses on the enjoyment of the high-end cuisine. The goal was to conceive a new perception of warmth, to achieve a result where material and light co-exist as one single communication. This was accomplished through a central element, the “cloud”. This cloud-shaped matrix of LEDs allowed the generation of densities and tridimensional light effects that accompany the diner and enhance their gastronomic experience.
Architecture and illumination work together to this end: the undefined background, the transparent chairs and tables that reflect their surroundings. The luminous yet murky “cloud” that fills the restaurant and that submerges diners in an ethereal world through the use of vaporous materials and light.
The color that sets the mood and introduces diners to the themed zones, generating chromatic compositions inside the cloud; the wine of the cava lounge, the ice of the cocktail lounge, the fire of the Teppanyaki lounge. The experience is served.
