Look At Me | Artemide
Domestic and contract lighting system
Look at Me is a family of suspension lamps designed for Artemide by Silvio De Ponte and Alida Catella. These products ask their users to be looked at, observed, to enter their “innermost soul”, that is, light. The project starts from the concept of “aggregation” with single, cluster or compound suspensions on tracks. These elements are essential but perfectly designed to guarantee maximum efficiency and luminous comfort thanks to two lenses placed at the ends of the diffuser body.
The light emitted by the LED source is perfectly controlled inside the cone, the beam drawn by the primary lens falls exactly on the surface of the lower lens that opens the emission. The diffuser is made of black methacrylate and internally has a special system of stepped grooves with two different inclinations that allow the material to “capture” the light, creating external light rings that distribute it without any glare.
Another very important aspect of the project is the use of a track with a “magnetic” coupling and without rigid joints at the ends. The joint is in fact only a connection passage (electricity and data) and not a mechanical coupling. This opens up a great deal of freedom and flexibility in the system which, from a single electrical connection point, carries light into the space over many metres and at different heights.
