The Bjarke Ingels Vine Light for Artemide looks like a doodle
Vine is the latest in a succession of linear lighting solutions designed by Danish architecture firm BIG.
A wide range of lighting designs is being unveiled during Milan design week 2018. One of our highlights is by Danish architecture studio BIG, which has added to a succession of linear lighting solutions for Italian manufacturer Artemide. It’s called Vine and it’s a suitably minimal light with a doodle-like design featuring two incomplete rings, one as the light and the other as the stand.
Vine is mostly defined by an unbroken section measuring only 16 mm in diameter, which shapes the structure and houses all the optoelectronic and mechanical elements.
The light was unveiled at the brand’s showroom on Corso Monforte in Milan and follows a succession of lighting solutions BIG has designed for Artemide. Earlier this year, the brand released La Linear, a flexible silicone tube light designed by the group that can be moulded and adapted to create a variety of shapes.
“What appears to be continuity is actually a succession of components with different functions and characteristics, which translate technological complexity into simplicity and freedom,” says Artemide.
Permitting a somewhat similar level of flexibility, the structure of Vine is interrupted by two joints designed to let users move and adjust the placement of the light. As well as appearing pure and simple, it is intended to be pure and simple to use, creating the perfect balance between materials, the precision of movement and functionality.
