Empatia by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello for Artemide
After its initial presentation in April 2013 at Euroluce, Empatia underwent "a thorough development phase" before being released to the UK market. The design of Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello for Artemide, Empatia combines traditional glassblowing with cutting edge LED technology. The resulting lamps, available in three different sizes and power levels, offer a serene light housed inside a smooth glass dome.
LED Inside Venetian Glass Reflects Light with No Glare
By working with master Venetian glassblowers, Artemide ensured that Empatia would be "a unique craft object whilst not compromising on light efficiency." The high-performance LED illustrates Artemide's commitment to design innovation. Captured inside an egg-shaped cage, Emaptia's LED glows without glare, like a high-tech flame on the tip of a magic wand. The resulting design, in clear and opaque glass, is reminiscent of Victorian bell jars, offering a futuristic object study of light.
