Empatia Suspension Lamp
Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Paola di Arianello
Empatia is inspired by the association between the great glass-blowing tradition and the LED technology of Artemide. High interest in the expression potentials of these materials resulted into co-operation with master glass blowers to gain full control of the special suppleness of Venetian glass and to work on the balance between surface and light. Between subtle densities and transparencies, the results are clear, pure craft objects, each of them unique in all respects.
