carlotta de bevilacqua & paolo dell'ecle for artemide

‘copernico’ is a series of lamps – a suspension and wall version – developed by italian designers carlotta de bevilacqua and paolo dell’ecle for lighting manufacturer artemide.

made from anodized aluminium, ‘copernico suspensione’ consists of nine concentric mobile ellipses obtained from a single aluminium plate that supports 384 white LEDs. the ellipses rotate independently on two different axes, enabling light emission to be directed in numerous spatial configurations. when the device is closed, it is completely flat.

the wall-mounted ‘copernico parete’ is constructed from three concentric elements which are made from a single aluminium plate. though smaller than its suspension lamp counterpart, ‘copernico parete’ also houses a circuit of 384 LEDs. its internal elements rotate independently on the horizontal axis, enabling light emission.
