Artemide INTRODUCES

Ripple

Ripple Bjarke Ingels Group Artemide

Ripple suspension system shapes the qualities of space through molecular growth, combining light and sound absorption.

Ripple is a system comprised of circular structures in three different diameters, it works through layers of performance that can be modulated as required. The structures can be simple electrical connection elements, unveil "pure" light or be enriched by a diffuser which, in addition to interacting with the light, offers sound absorption properties.

The basic element of the product is a circular ring whose profile is a synthesis of optics and mechanical engineering. The structures are made of an innovative heat-conducting moulded plastic which dissipates heat, allowing high-power LEDs to be used. Ripple is offered in a basic cluster combining elements of three different diameters.

The strength of the project lies in the complete freedom to shape the ambient qualities of the installation space, starting from the individual rings used to achieve custom solutions. The free composition of the elements and their performance layers (connection, light, acoustics) calibrates both illumination and the acoustic control potential.

Ripple can therefore grow from the light and sound measured parameters and their relationship with space. The elements, used individually or in the standard cluster of three, can be alternated in space to define the ambient qualities and balance the needs of different areas in terms of functionality, relationship with natural light and architectural characteristics.

Ripple elements can also be combined in increasingly complex customised solutions: from simple lines or geometries of elements with a constant diameter, to compositions that combine different diameters in a more organic and free growth, through to show-stopping, striking solutions.

Once again, Artemide's project with BIG is guided by a strong idea of interaction with spaces, an open, modular and scalable solution that combines technological innovation with compositional intelligence, translating all this into something apparently simple but striking and full of potential. This freedom of configuration is then mirrored by the flexibility in management granted by interaction with Artemide App.

"The project came from our work designing several interior elements for our WeGrow school in Manhattan. The overall form was inspired by repeating elements found in nature that grow and expand in organic ways, like molecular growth"
