The activity of Neri&Hu is founded on constant research and the desire to work on the dynamic interaction of experience, detail, material, shape, and light, rather than adapt to stereotyped formulas. In a blend of tradition and innovation, Yanzi is a lightweight composition of graphic signs. Balanced structures, such as branches or perches, support multiple stylized figures to provide a variety of versions and qualities of light. They are iconic swallows with a brushed brass body, with their head like a white glass sphere enclosing light, either flying free or contained in glass cages. There is unique sensibility in matching warm and cold, essential yet refined materials. Yanzi is an open system, ideal for creating lightweight compositions and light landscapes that animate any space with an elegant poetic attitude.

History of Artemide
This famous company was started by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza in 1960. The first subsidiary of Artemide was inaugurated twenty years later in the United States. Today, the company is headquartered in Milanese suburb Pregnana Milanese and maintains 24 subsidiaries, selling its goods to 98 countries. Its capacity includes six manufacturing facilities in Italy, France, Germany, Hungary and Canada, as well as two glassworks and a centre dedicated to research and development, where the company puts all its prototypes under scrutiny and conducts various experiments among other activities marking Artemide‘s continuous innovatory efforts.
Since its launch in the 1960s, Artemide has teamed up with an impressive number of internationally celebrated designers. Some of its most renowned pieces are the Tizio desk lamp devised by German designer Richard Sapper in 1972 and the Tolomeo desk lamp by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina, which was introduced in 1986.
In addition, Artemide is a recipient of multiple honours, among them the Compasso d‘Oro award for lifetime achievement it was given in 1995 and the European Design Prize, which the company won in 1997. The year 2006 was highlighted by two red dot design awards Artemide gained for its lamp designs by Neil Poulton and Herzog & de Meuron. This attainment was followed by the IF Product Design Award in 2013 as a recognition of the Cata lamp design created by Carlotta de Bevilacqua for Artemide.
Having reached international fame for its unique pieces, many of Artemide‘s lamps are now featured in permanent museum exhibitions, such as in New York City‘s Met and MoMA, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Galleria Nazionale d‘Arte Moderna in Rome.
Artemide: Pushing the Frontiers of Lighting
Artemide‘s core values can be summarized as a human approach to lighting, gathering clever design and technical skills along with innovation endeavours to achieve the perfect product made to last. As a result of this relentless pursuit, Artemide was able to file countless patents, demonstrating the company‘s productive activity in the field of research and development. And it is not only the components of a light which Artemide is dedicating its study to – the surrounding space and its interaction with light plus the human factor are all taken into account as well. What is more, Artemide is always trying to move beyond the horizon, envisioning a future in which still hidden potentials will be fully realized. One clue lies in the improvement of the interactive aspect of lighting, making use of digital technologies for an unprecedented form of dialogue to bring forth a revolution of lighting comparable to that spurred by LED technology.
Artemide: Premium Quality Lights Perfected for Human Use
In the broad assortment of Artemide, both indoor and outdoor Highlight can be found. The indoor branch is comprised of pendant lights, ceiling lights, wall lights, table lamps and floor lamps. In the outdoor section, by contrast, there are pendants, ceiling lamps and wall lamps.
Choosing a creation by Artemide for exemplification purposes is not easy, since the entire collection of lamps fabricated by this manufacturer is extremely high in quality and characterized by innovative designs. One example is the Orbiter wall light featuring a minimalist, lightweight design. Harnessing the power of LED technology, it gives off indirect light from a light source which is placed on a disc, facing the wall. The light source is at a distance designed to optimally distribute the light. The cylindrical base at the end of its rod is where the light is reflected, with the movable disc allowing for various illumination options.
An absolute classic of Artemide‘s is the Tizio table lamp, made out of lacquered polycarbonate in black and silver grey (while the white version is lacquered metal). Winning the Compasso d‘Oro in 1979, this design is still astonishing by its futuristic appearance. Featuring adjustable arms and luminaire head, it is also equipped with counterbalances, the combination of which makes possible for the lamp to be arranged according to one‘s various requirements – marking Artemide‘s philosophy of invariably paying tribute to human needs.
