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.
Tryp HotelBarcelona, Spain 2001
The project of the common areas of the Hotel Tryp of the Barcelona airport was focused on the central space: a large hall that faces all the corridors of rooms. This space had large zenithal skylights that provided natural light during the day. At night, thanks to groups of 5 metal ceramic halide luminaires of 150w installed inside the skylights, it maintained the volumetric sensation and spatial quality with the artificial light of the great atrium. To this typology, it was added decorative foot lights of warm ambient light effect of 3000ºK, to bring human scale to the place and make a comfortable space for the visitor. The conjunction of these two typologies were outside the visual of the people who they were sitting in the atrium, generating in their sum a suggestive and comfortable space of high luminous and spatial quality and of great visual impact for the hotel guests.
