Artfully wrapped light – Artemide Cadmo
A dignified, elegantly wound steel sheet creates smooth light directed up and downward and thus provides pleasant general lighting. Moreover, this lamp from the Artemide
Cadmo family acts as a tastefully designed work of art, which gives your living area a visual upgrade. So, for example, the floor lamp Artemide Cadmo Terra has won prizes such as red dot award, IF product design award and Good Design Award.
The idea for the Artemide Cadmo
developed on a rainy day in Milano, when the American designer Karim Rashid, known as the „pop star of the world of design“, saw a man wearing a long rain cape. But due to his short-sightedness he could just see the outlines of that man. So the notion of Artemide Cadmo
began to take shape – light wrapped by a coat of fine steel. The Artemide Cadmo floor lamp appears gracefully despite its height of 1.75 m, adding grace and beauty to living, dining, working room or bedroom. As a light dispenser it impresses with variable light emission. Since both illuminants can be set independently of one another via a dimmer, individual lighting atmospheres can be created – depending on your needs light is given up to the ceiling and/or into the room. So smooth halogen light is pointing upwards, where as the light of the integrated light bulb is scattered harmoniously through a vertical opening in the steel sheet. Tilting stability is given to the Artemide Cadmo floor lamp
by a base of varnished Inox steel. Thanks to a cable length of 160 cm, this luminaire can be positioned almost anywhere in the room.
The Artemide Cadmo Parete Fluo wall light
also offers two illuminants and so represents an effective lighting solution as well. On the one hand it provides your hallway or living room with general lighting. On the other hand it serves as a classy wall decoration.
The designer of the Artemide Cadmo
, Karim Rashid, has Egyptian and English roots. His prize-winning design objects have been exhibited, among others, at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
