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.
Museo BarrocoPuebla, Mexico 2017
We had the pleasure to work with the 2013 Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito Architects on the lighting design for The Museo Internacional del Barroco (MIB) in Puebla.
The studio worked closely with Toyo Ito´s team in Barcelona to create a lighting scheme according to the design of the building to make a solid unit. Fluidity and natural light and shading were basic concepts of design.
As in Baroque art, the use of light in MIB has a special meaning. It communicates ideas, expresses emotion, movement, and drama, and illustrates the union between the heavens and the earth, guiding the visitors throughout their visit to the Museum.
