Artemide, 2018

For this new project with Artemide, I designed the Gio lamp. Made of injected aluminum, Gio is, first and foremost, a tool, a functional suspension lamp, discreet, and, above all, timeless.

Gio is the fruit of my collaboration with the Artemide team, leveraging its know-how and expertise. Together, we wanted to put the emphasis on the light itself and its use. Along with Artemide engineers, we focused on the quality of lighting and on finding a way to create a relevant product that would light up a room in an impeccable manner. Gio's shape naturally derives from the technical and technological solutions we decided to use and later developed.

"Make more with less" was the motto on this project, therefore, I endeavored to focus on that objective throughout the development of the project! With that in mind, I designed a product that fits equally well in homes or public spaces. Used alone or in a series, Gio inhabits spaces efficiently and elegantly.

Lastly, an emphasis on color highlights the object's personality. With a touch of red, yellow, blue, black or white, Gio sets the tempo of our surroundings, day and night like a signal.
