Empatia Wall/Ceiling Lamp by Carlotta de Bevilacqua for Artemide
A marriage of art and science, Empatia is available in 3 body sizes and all formats. Designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello, the hand-blown glass diffuser displays an ombré progression of opacity from transparent to frosted from base to top allowing efficient light diffusion without glare. The white-painted bottom plate within the diffuser reflects light created by the internal LED “pipe”. The die-cast aluminum base holds a touch dimmer.
Empatia is available in table, wall and suspension versions.
The full Empatia Collection is available here.
Available in 11W 3000K >80 CRI LED integrated light source.

Architect, designer and above all humanist, Carlotta de Bevilacqua has been a force in contemporary lighting since the 1980’s. A pioneer in LED research and implementation, she created the concept “The Human Light” in which lighting encourages not only the well-being of those who live, work and interact with it, but also the planet. As interested in science of light as the sensory experience, de Bevilacqua seeks to create synergy between products and users through accessible, experimental design. A life-force at Artemide for nearly 4 decades, in addition to her own studio she oversees Danese Milano creating minimal, yet elegant, products which further complement the built environment. In addition to widespread recognition for her work, in 2011, she received a Red Dot Design Award for the Algoritmo and Copernico.
