lighting design

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.

lights

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.

about

artec3 is an international awarded light workshop with over 20 years of experience, founded by lighting designer Maurici Ginés in 1998. We work with light, developing projects in architectural lighting design, creating light-art works and luminaires, from our offices in Barcelona, Mexico City, Madrid and New York.

The aim is to offer our clients all the potential that shaping light can provide, creating works that connect the space with people and corporate and institutional identities, encouraging perception, knowledge and emotion.

In order to do so, we are organized in 3 specialized departments:

Lighting design: Architectural lighting projects
Lab: Light-art creation lab
Lights: Luminaires design

process


Our process is a constant search of the interaction that the light can generate among the materiality, space and people, how it can make us adapt better to our environment and how together with the design and art can influence our behavior in a positive way.

The entire process is supported by internal quality controls throughout all phases of the project, ensuring excellent works that achieve the client's goals.
