Katà Métron

Katà Métron finds inspiration in the relationship that lies at the heart of art, architecture and philosophy: measurement.

The Greek expression “katà métron” means “according to right measure”. With this expression, the original Greek philosophical thought referred to the attitude of those who know how to take care of themselves. Greek architecture adopts a construction logic based on the idea of "module", that is the single element which creates the measure of the whole. It is the concept of order as a sequence of repeated elements. Finally, art is the union of philosophy and architecture.

Katà Métron

Katà Métron combines simplicity, functionality and aesthetics. Innovation, culture of the project and shared commitment towards the creation of products that are increasingly sustainable and attentive to the use of the limited resources of our planet, lead to an innovative and surprising solution. Mario Cucinella has designed an object in which the modular light elements can create an infinite number of combinations and shapes, allowing the design of lighting scenarios that are tailored with respect to the spaces and to the needs of the activities that take place in them.

“Katà Métron makes it possible to create lighting micro-architectures that can be adapted to any space, shape and size. Together with Artemide, we have created an object capable of organising and redefining the space that surrounds us according to the most disparate needs”
