Geometric wall lights "Made in Italy"
The Melete series
is an award-winning wall light range by the well-known Toso brothers. These design objects from Artemide stand out for their purist design language that returns to the basic geometric shape of a cuboid. This is additionally emphasised by the white finish of the luminaire body which makes these lights virtually blend in with white walls. Moreover, the wall lights
that were awarded the Red Dot Award
in 2011 offer a special feature: they combine glare-free ambient lighting with atmospheric mood lighting and thereby create an unimagined lighting effect. This is facilitated by two oval openings on the upper and the lower end of the geometric body which allow the light to escape.
The largest part of the light emitted by the Melete Parete
is directed upwards toward the wall, from where it is reflected into the room. This way, a soft and glare-free illumination of the entire room is created. At the same time, a screen on the bottom side ensures that the housing of the light fixture is softly illuminated. This means that these wall lights skilfully put themselves in the limelight. For this reason, the Melete
from Artemide turns out to be an impressive eye-catcher
despite its unobtrusive look.
Melete Parete: versatile ambient lighting for your home
Due to its impressive light intensity, the Melete Parete
is ideally suited to supply ambient lighting in many different living areas. For instance, it suffuses a living room
with pleasant light that allows you to relax and enjoy the time after a long day of work. Here, this purist wall light leaves the stage to the light itself, while the luminaire body discreetly blends in with the background. In large hallways
, this wall light unfolds its full potential by producing an inviting light atmosphere
that makes guest feel immediately welcome. However, it is also possible to use the Artemide Melete
for supplying warm-white light in the dining room, the study or the bedroom.
Up to now, the Melete light family
by the Italian light manufacturer Artemide only consists of two wall lights. One version is equipped with a high-performance halogen rod and another model with modern and energy-saving LED technology. In comparison to the halogen version with its 3,300 lm
halogen rod, the Melete Parete LED
produces a little less light. However, it only requires 29 watts
to produce 2,130 lumens
and thereby may easily illuminate large rooms.
Just like all lights by the Toso brothers, the Melete wall lights
from Artemide impress by their excellent workmanship and a reduced yet fascinating design. All luminaires by Tito
and Pio Toso
put their focus on the light emitted, while the function of the design is to give the light a special character.
