Artemide Vitruvio Suspension Light
The Vitruvio suspension light by Artemide where mechanical intelligence turns into an expression of beauty. A thin frame and a blown-glass diffuser are the main features of this project.
Three metal rods are introduced into the sphere by means of an ingenious mechanism inspired by the clockmaking art, thus creating the frame that supports the glass globe. The mobile rods open up inside the diffuser and, as a result of the utmost precision of the geometric joints and of balanced weights, support the glass sphere, both when turned upwards in the floor version, and when turned downwards in the suspension version.
