An archetypal lampshade balanced on a tilted stem. Simple elements, exquisitely combined into an amazing geometric composition, recall basic forms matched with different materials for technological reasons. Despite its plain and simple look, this lamp clearly conveys the skills of Artemide. The lampshade is a lightweight plastic volume closed by two diffusers that produce a pleasant soft direct and indirect light. The joint connects the lampshade with the aluminium stem on a minimal support. These simple elements are combined into a plain and elegant object, where the tilted stem is counterbalanced by the lampshade’s volume. “La Petite walks on a wire, balancing between full and empty. There is no symmetry in its design, but there is order. A subtle harmony of elements disassembled, in equilibrium at the boundary between light and dark.” Quaglio Simonelli
Matt laquered steel; diffuser screens in opaline methacrylate. Three projectors with dichroic fi lters red, green and blue, allow to create a wide range of light coloured atmospheres and a fourth projector produces white light. It is possible, using a remote control, to select 12 standard atmospheres, to create and memorise other 86 and to adjust the light intensity. With remote control.
The Demetra family is expanded with two new versions to meet varying usage requirements: Demetra Micro and Demetra Professional. While flow emission varies in Demetra Professional, its size is identical to the classical version. It was designed to address the need for a task light with greater flows allowing to obtain high illuminance on the working top. With the advanced LED technology and the adoption of smart elementary solutions, maximum performance is ensured in a minimal product. Its look is the typical essential and linear one of Demetra, but its head is a more complex optical device, designed for more powerful LEDs also through painstaking study of thermal science. The aluminium bottom of the head’s body works as a heatsink by taking shape and folding inside the head to accommodate the LED, however without contact and therefore without creating a heat bridge with the top. This allows maximum dissipation, and therefore the use of a high-power COB LED, without affecting its functionality deriving from operation and from direct user relation with the lamp. The top of its head can be safely touched without contact with high temperatures. Emission is controlled by a reflector that slightly protrudes from the head’s profile and designs perfect illuminance on the top to create a work station with a high colour yield (Cri 90). The Demetra family becomes more complete to satisfy all the needs of different application fields with flexible and comprehensive solutions, as well as with specific and dedicated ones.
