Artemis' award-winning lamp, Eclisse , strikes a balance between form and function. A table lamp that can also be wall-mounted, and a lamp that can shine directly on a subject, but also produce a more diffused, indirect light through the rotating, inner shade. Eclipse was designed by Vico Magistretti (of which you can see a picture on this page) back in 1965 and won the Italian design prize, the Compasso d'Oro Award in 1967.
Artemide was founded in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi and is based in Pregnana Milanese, Italy. The brand has showrooms all over the world, is distributed in 98 countries and several of the brand's lamps are exhibited in a large number of museums for modern art and design collections. Eclisse, for example, has a permanent place at MoMa in New York and the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.
Artemide has contributed to design history with several designs. Besides Eclipse, also Tolomeo (1989, from Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina), Beep (2004, from Herzog & De Meuron) and IN-EI Collection (2014, Issey Miyake), all shown at the Compasso D'oro Awards.
In 1994, Artemide received the "Compaso D'oro" career award, the European Design Award in 1997 and the "Leonardo Italian Quality Prize" in 2012.
