Pendant O

"O" is an outdoor/indoor light designed by Workshop Elemental for Artemide. The light is designed to be as imperceptible as possible when not used. When switched off, the lighting piece becomes an unobtrusive sculptural object that can frame surrounding nature through its large, rounded aperture and minimal silhouette. ‘O is an attempt to reconcile the needs of the natural and the urban environment’, Chilean designer Aravena says. “O” is composed of a thin disc that interferes as little as possible with the existing landscape (either suspended or on floor base), but that when activated by people’s motion illuminates the adjacent space for a short, necessary amount of time, allowing nature to return to its darkened state. The controls of the ‘O’ lamp are adjusted with sensors, and via the artemide app to respect the outdoor environment in which it sits. illuminating only when needed and reacting to passersby as they move through a landscape, the light is designed to prevent waste and respond to the biological cycles of animal and plant species. This sculptural light has a thin aluminium profile and sense of lightness that is an element on its own. envisioned as a public design piece, it can be easily moved wherever necessary, and allows for multiple configurations.

Artemide has been a worldwide leader in lighting design with an unparalleled commitment to technological innovation, research and human interaction, committed to the philosophy of "the Human Light". For over six decades, Artemide has created award-winning collaborations with some of the world’s most talented designers.
