Artemide, Empathy

18 April 2013

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.

She sits astride Italy, Belgium and Southeast Asia, and sometimes falls off. When asked what she does, she replies: I do things, see people. She has been writing about furniture for twenty years and is still not tired of it, in spite of everything. She has no free time, and is not even interested in it. For her it’s enough not to have to go to the same office everyday. She mixes with unlikely people, and contributes to Klat for this very reason.
