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.
Marina Port VellBarcelona, Spain 2015
The lighting design approach was to generate an ambient lighting that would organize light levels and allow for a nocturnal operation in each area of the harbor. The transition between the city and the waterfront was resolved as a single typology, using color light, to unify and define the perimeter of the space. Buildings become "lamps" that filter light out to the pier.
Altogether, light provides a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation throughout the marina, highlights the waterfront promenade, and establishes a visual connection with the city at night.
