Alphabet of Light

Bjarke Ingels and Artemide

Bjarke Ingels teamed up with Artemide to design a series of lights based on words and graphic signs. The Alphabet of light consists of two linear elements of different length and two round owns that are combined with a system of letters, numbers and symbols. The round elements, available in two diameters, can be separated into modules to join the linear elements together according to different angles, thus designing everchanging geometries. The simple base modules, with specific geometric proportions, can be combined with each other to create countless basic or more complex, linear or curved structures of light, thus producing suspension appliances matching with architectures or space functions. The idea of BIG joins the optoelectronic competence of Artemide to define an innovative construction principle and provide continuous and comfortable lighting. While it has a minimal presence,
