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.
Manacar MallMexico City, Mexico 2019
The lighting design for the 144 meter tall building was developed under LEED Gold certification for the facade, access, parking lot and the mall track. Each area has its own character which taken together reveals a unique identity.
The composition work incorporates simple economical lighting elements. The integrated expression of the lighting with the architecture emphasizes the interplay between light and the organic interior geometries. The dynamic facade generates a dialogue within the urban rhythm of the city's skyline at night.
Composition and expression are key to the sensory image which Manacar transmits.
