The traditional ceiling light is given a new twist for Calipso Linear, a lighting design made up of geometric tubes.
Light shines through small circles of varying diameters, which are arranged side by side to create a “honeycomb” effect along its length.
“This honeycomb pattern in an elongated shape adds visual interest and comfort with a soft light to an otherwise traditionally shaped fixture,” Artemide told Dezeen.
The honeycomb grill was created by inserting a photo of the moon into an image-based algorithm on a computer. A shell was then placed over a thermo-formed screen to hide the LED circuit while maintaining its distinctive “dot effect”.
Calipso Linear can be used in both workplaces and homes thanks to its even and comfortable light emission.
“Calipso is suited to a variety of applications expressing Artemide’s traditional approach to deliver high performance lighting with a unique and emotional expressiveness,” the brand said.
Straight parts of Calipso Linear can be added together to create a longer light. Alternatively, a joint can connect two Calipso lights at a 90-degree angle. This functionality allows users to create multiple shapes.
