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.
Hammershoi and DreierBarcelona, Spain 2007
The exhibition "Hammershoi and Dreyer" took place at the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona from January 25 to May 1, 2007 in collaboration with RCR arquitectes. The lighting concept raised the influence of the light that the Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi has expressed in his works on the light that the filmmaker Theodor Dreyer exhibits in his feature films. The exhibition is divided into two parts: a start and an ending. The first part deals with the knowledge and the relationship of the authors, while the second part focus on the knowledge of their work.
In the beginning and in the end, the light itself is the information, giving the entry with the title and ending as a conclusion with an explanation about the light. In all cases, light acts as a common thread.
The light of the exhibition is summarized in seven typologies: lateral light, focal light, neutral light, landscape light, contrast light, penumbra light and projected light. Adding one last that has the purpose of preparation and conclusion to the name of Hammershoi and Dreyer.
