Discovery Ernesto Gismondi Artemide

The Discovery, awarded with the 2018 Compasso d'Oro, is an absent and immaterial, it acquires volume when switched on, thanks to the light drawn by its central emitting surface.

Discovery  introduces a new perceptive experience. In its continuous relationship between man and the environment, it becomes a constructive material of the space, it limits territoriality and it influences moods, it supports the flow of life rhythms, behaviours, and emotions, and it ensures a correct vision when carrying out different activities.

Discovery is more and more the perfect synthesis of the values, knowledge, innovative research and know-how of Artemide. The great optoelectronic skills, combined with a thorough culture of design and with technological know-how, produces perfectly transversal and surprising solutions, which translate innovation into the emotion of perception.

Discovery is a large family capable of defining a relationship with spaces and our perception that is increasingly engaging and qualitative.

Since 2015 it has been presented in different round versions: horizontal, vertical with three different diameters, and wall/ceiling appliance, with white light adjustable in intensity. Discovery becomes squared or rectangular. It is no longer only a frame capable of interacting with the surrounding environment, framing for example perspectives, points of view or details, but it creates scenes capable of shaping spaces through the presence or absence given by its different levels of transparency.

Today Discovery is also available in a floor-standing version with a rectangular frame that can be fixed to the wall.

Not only a new shape, but also the introduction of coloured and Tunable White light, which make it an even more magical and scenographic element. The combination of RGBW LEDs (red, green, blue, white) allows any colour hue and saturation, in addition to pure white. The Tunable White version varies the colour temperature from warm white to cold white.

The construction principle remains the same of the previous versions. An ultra-light aluminium ring hosts a LED strip that injects light into a clear PMMA surface, with a pattern of distributed micro-incisions for maximum efficiency and uniformity.

These generate a precise and punctual light extraction, following a balance of the flows with respect to the emitting surface which guarantees a perfect visual comfort, an enveloping and constant light on both sides. Performance and flows are high, but the effect is absolutely comfortable, so much so that it even complies with UGR standards for workplaces in any installation position.

Already since the first versions of Discovery Artemide has broken the classic patterns and preconceptions - that usually present a clear division between design appliances and more technical performances of systems for the workplace -, now with the introduction of colour it also opens to new applications and scenarios increasingly more aimed at well-being and emotionality.
