Artemide & Mercedez-Benz Collaborate on Ameluna Modern Pendant Light
New 2017 lighting models from Artemide have just arrived at 2Modern—and most notable amongst them is Ameluna, a highly innovative modern pendant lighting collaboration between Artemide and car maker Mercedez-Benz. The inspired merging of Artemide's legendary lighting excellence with the luxury car maker's storied elegance, has yielded a celestial-like contemporary lamp that leverages innovative optoelectric technology—a process which allows lighting to be detected and controlled digitally.
Ameluna—a name that combines both brands' names with 'luna,' the Italian word for moon—is informed by both sky and ocean, featuring a transparent, asymmetrical acrylic form that, when illuminated, resembles a celestial body as much as a luminous sea creature. 288 LEDs disperse light throughout the transparent body, turning the entire lamp into a glowing ethereal object, while barely visible, wafer-thin support wires hold Ameluna aloft, seemingly suspended in space. A graceful and technologically refined modern lighting design for both residential and contract applications, the Artemide Ameluna pendant light, along with all Artemide new arrivals, may be seen here >
