About the Designer
Adrien Gardere Italy
His medium is space. Adrien Gardère is a museum designer, interior decorator, furniture maker by training, with an extensive knowledge of ancient civilizations. Adrien Gardère began his itinerant career in 2000. His work in three disciplines – furniture design, stage design, and interior architecture – takes him to Milan, London, Paris, Cairo… sometimes to India or Indonesia. He makes an intelligent accommodation between traditional know-how and contemporary needs; his creations are characterized by the desire to escape from stereotypes of innovation that compromises comfort and the quality of life.
Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities. That is why Artemide's attention today is concentrated on the concept of the context of life, understood as a specific microenvironment in which an event occurs where one or more persons are the protagonist, every context of life can be associated with different light contexts, or the different atmospheres of light characterized by the activities that, at various moments of the day, have us as protagonists, starting from these contexts and the lighting conditions that characterize them, Artemide proposes products capable of meeting people's multiple needs and offering the light performance characteristics most suited to each moment of life, it is light that is flexible and adaptable, which produces the optimum visual precision, and consumes the minimum environmental resources, it is Artemide light.
The Artemide group, founded by Ernesto Gismondi in 1959, today operates throughout the world, with 16 subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and 35 exclusive distributors. They have production centers in Italy, France, Germany, the USA, Hungary and the Czech Republic. In a policy aimed at satisfying all lighting needs, the Artemide group has recently acquired companies that reinforce its position as a world leader and further diversifies the offerings. For contexts of life, Artemide offers not only lamps for moments of relaxation at home, but also large sophisticated installations for lighting public and private professional activities.
Technological and productive expertise is achieved through research and development centers, with the product planning and engineering section, laboratories for technical conformity and self-certification tests, and production units equipped with avant-garde processes. A production structure that can offer expertise in the processing of traditional materials such as glass, as well as the capacity for innovation with recently introduced materials such as titanium. Lighting performance characteristics extend from a light with atmosphere, variable, colored, to the most precise of lights for community environments. The vast range of options reflects the commitment of the whole organization to provide a product guaranteed by the Artemide brand, throughout the world, with an image that is strong and consistant - That of a leader in the lighting industry.

This is a great floor lamp. I have a vaulted ceiling and keep it mostly in the position where it is shining light up towards the ceiling. Very crisp lines and good quality.
As good as it gets
vaarium from SF, CA
I've been using this lamp for a while now; my first impression was that it looks great. It's a little shorter than most of my other floor lamps (it'd be perfect if it's just a few inches taller) but really it's not a big deal. FYI, I have the bronze version.
