Artemide wins a Wallpaper* Design of the Year Award 2014

We’ve been in love with Artemide’s Empatia light since we clapped eyes on it. And it turns out we’re in good company. Wallpaper’s illustrious judging panel – Victoria Beckham, Michael Chow, Ron Gilad, Spike Jonze, Thom Mayne, Thaddaeus Ropac – just named Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello’s light winner of Best Transparency. The light travels up a central LED rod and reflects off the opaque top and radiates out of this hand-blown glass dome – the perfect meeting of technology and tradition. Simply gorgeous.
