Artemide was founded by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza in 1959. Known for its philosophy THE HUMAN LIGHT that places men and the pursuit of their well-being at the core of research and development, Artemide has always been synonymous for Design, Innovation, and Made in Italy.
In almost half a century of business and entrepreneurial experiences, a surprising common characteristic is revealed. Artemide products do not conform to traditions, trends, fads, nor a fashion statement of the moment. This approach defines the Artemide experience which is the exhausting desire to find solutions to the human demand for lighting, even if still unexpressed and unconscious. The individual is constantly placed at the center of the project. Formal and aesthetic needs, technological innovations, individual and collective talents have been, are, and always will be dedicated to this purpose.
THE HUMAN LIGHT: everywhere in the world, the light of Artemide for the wellness of man.
