elegant and sleek, la linea by bjark ingels group (BIG) for artemide has been created for both indoor and outdoor spaces. its fixing elements have been concealed inside its section, enabling it for countless applications in a wide variety of locations. it features artemide’s incomparable light quality, IP protection grade, flexibility and modularity. each individual element is 5 meters long but can be extended endlessly and seamlessly thanks to its concealed joints without visible shadows or signs.

featuring artemide’s patented optical unit, la linea generates an even and comfortable high-efficiency diffused light. this patent brings together several types of intelligences that connect optical with material, mechanical, manufacturing principles and sustainable values. it can be easily folded and ensures easy maintenance and longevity. with its minimal footprint in space, it can either blend with the architecture or become highly expressive, as it allows users to draw with light.
