The beauty of the new technologies for lighting is that they give designers much more freedom of expression. As in the case of the splendid Empathy, a lamp designed by Carlotta De Bevilacqua for Artemide: an LED surrounded by an imperceptible and immaterial bubble of transparent glass. A slender pipe leads the light into the bubble, which in this case is made of glass, but could also be made of plastic. The light source and the body of the lamp are separate, and can therefore be replaced at any time.
