Eggboard and Stab Light won the Red Dot Award 2016

Milan, March 31st 2016 – Eggboard, signed by Giovanni Giacobone and Massimo Roj, and Stab Light, designed by Arik Levy for Danese (Artemide Group), are the winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016, one of the most important international prizes which reward the high quality of design and the innovative excellence of products.

“Red Dot Award: Product Design” to Stab Light family

The lighting project Stab Light won the Red Dot Award for quality, functionality and ecological compatibility of the product.

This family of lamps created by Arik Levy for Danese are produced through a skilled glass-blowing craftsmanship. The diffusers are in glass blown by a productive process which shows the extraordinary skill of glassmakers, who transmit their experience from generation to generation: various levels of glass in different colors are blown in a wood stamp.

The combination of different forms and hues of Stab Light allows to create suggestive composition of light.

The lighting atmosphere are even more free and flexible thanks to the smart suspension system of the multiple version, which allows to distribute light in space in a ever different way by the rotation of the structure’ shafts.


“Red Dot: Best of the Best” to lighting project Eggboard

Eggboard received the “Red Dot: Best of Best” award for its innovative design and high quality of the product. This pendant lamp was created with a simple idea: to combine acoustic and visual comfort in a single device. The sound absorption properties are obtained thanks to its particular sinusoidal section of the lower surface and to the use of soundproofing material. Two optical version, with different performances developed in two dimension, allow to model the light after the needs of different spaces. The installation of more devices , suspended at different heights and in different colors, allows to modulate the performance after the space characteristics and to create compositions with scenographic and bright effects. This lighting system is created to grant the maximum of performance in the working place, but its high acoustic and lighting efficiency is perfect for other application fields: from office and education to hospitality and entertainment, from retail to hall and connectivity.

“La leggerezza delle intuizioni” Paolo Ulian

March 28, 2016



Danese è sponsor della rassegna antologica dedicata al famoso designer italiano Paolo Ulian, a cura dell’Associazione Culturale Imaginificat che sarà ospitata a Lucca nel Palazzo Mediceo di Seravezza dal 30 aprile al 30 maggio.

Ulian, in questo momento fra i più versatili e importanti designer italiani, è considerato erede e ideale continuatore del fil rouge della creatività che, a partire da Castiglioni, Sottsass, Munari, Mari ha rinnovato, con ironia, versatilità, sensibilità estetica ed anche etica, l’insieme di oggetti che “popolano” il nostro quotidiano. Muovendosi con delicatezza e misura è capace di reinventare oggetti che fanno parte della memoria collettiva, portando a nuova vita materiali poveri e/o di scarto.

Semplicità, naturalezza, pochi orpelli, molta sostanza: l’allestimento guida alla lettura storica e tematica della produzione di Ulian, accompagnando i visitatori in un percorso pieno di sorprese e suggestioni.         

Tra questi la lampada Yap e il vassoio Doily disegnati per Danese che dal taglio di una sottile lamiera modellano forme inaspettate: un’idea che con semplicità produttiva, nessuno scarto di materiale, flat pack, rispetta a pieno i valori che il DNA di Danese condivide con la progettualità di Paolo Ulian.









Artemide and Danese Milano at the 56° Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte – la Biennale di Venezia

March 28, 2016




Venice, May 2015 – The Italian group Artemide, a major international player in lighting history, is a sponsor of the 56th International Art Exhibition – Venice Biennale, whose title this year is “All the World’s Futures”.

This important partnership with contemporary art further confirms the ongoing effort of Artemide to disseminate culture through its lighting projects, as well as the company’s ability to pursue continuous innovation by creating ideal solutions for man’s environment and for its fitting. Artemide also supports the world’s most renowned contemporary art exhibition with its lighting projects, interacting with visitors both indoor and outdoor.

The light of Artemide is a unique mix of values and know how: the company’s approach to human and responsible light is combined with a design and material savoir-faire, creating a connection between next-generation technology and old wisdom – a perfect expression of sustainable design.

The Bookshop features the LED light of the IN-EI collection designed by Issey Miyake and of the special clusters of Empatia, proof of the combination between innovation and the Venetian glass-blowing art, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola di Arianello.

Patrons at the restaurant Le Bombarde are welcomed by the colourful scenes of Les Danseuses, a hybrid light and air project designed by Atelier Oi for Danese. Colours and minimal forms go hand in hand also in the Ilio appliances designed by Ernesto Gismondi, integrating the lighting project for the restaurant.

The Press Room is fitted with iconic appliances that convey the great history of Artemide and bear evidence of the Group’s ongoing cooperation with architects and designers of international renown.

The outdoor spaces of the Belvedere Bar feature the Piroscafo lamps by Ernesto Gismondi, which are perfectly integrated into the landscape without disturbing visitors enjoying the beautiful view.

At the Garden Bar and in the outdoor spaces of the Arsenal, the light of Artemide interacts with visitors in projects like Empirico by Karim Rashid and Tolomeo by Michele De Lucchi. The latter, in its outdoor versions, is further proof of the uniqueness of Artemide – design skill, technology, and focus on man and the planet are simply expressed in a product that, after almost 30 years of history, can still illuminate the future with unabated power.

The light of Artemide, visible at the 56th International Art Exhibition, is innovative, universal, sustainable and originates from a research and a culture focused on man’s future, wellbeing, and relation with the surrounding environment and landscape.
