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.


Light and material, a certain enigma in itself

The Enigmatic system was developed to create the ambient lighting for the Enigma Restaurant in Barcelona, to adapt the light to different scenarios using white and colored lighting depending on the restaurant's cuisine, and to achieve the effect of an enigmatic cloud of light.

Like a false ceiling, the system is used throughout the restaurant. It is made up of a grid of led lamps installed every 60cms and, below them, a translucent diffuser of wrinkled plastic fabric. The system was completed with a metal mesh defined by the architects, the Pritkzer winner RCR.

The bespoke led lamp works as RGBW led matrix controlled by DMX and a white led matrix controlled by Dali. The control system combined with the light and the material generates an abstract atmosphere that transmits a certain enigma in itself.
