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.
Sant PauBarcelona, Spain 2013
The rehabilitation to convert the historical building into a Conference Center was an architectural challenge since it was a protected building and all construction details had to be preserved.
All lighting typologies had to be carefully considered according to its location and the proposed light effect to meet the program strict requirements.
Most lighting typologies had to be integrated. Hanging typologies were the most used since they allowed to reuse the restored connection points.
A special case was the subsoil zone as there was no possibility of taking electricity more than the perimeter of the room. All the technology used was 3000ºK LEDs with different optics and powers, which were controlled by DALI.
