Calipso

Paris, France

Neil Poulton for Artemide

Following on from the "Silver" "European Product Design Award" (ePDA) 2017 won for the "Scopas" lamp, Neil Poulton & Artemide present "Calipso".


Paris, France, 2017-06-23 -

Calipso is a wall and ceiling lamp - high tech lighting generated from a forgotten, vintage algorithm.


The unique honeycomb grill of Calipso was generated by feeding a photo of the moon into an image-based algorithm found on a seemingly extinct computer. The resulting fractal shape, an impure geometry that displays the irregular beauty of nature, is built from an organic honeycomb of different diameter tubes, seemingly arranged in a random geometry. This honeycomb characterizes the lamp both aesthetically and optically - not only is it visually pleasing, but it also provides an even and comfortable light emission. 


The result is a highly emotional lighting object that joins together optical and aesthetic intelligence. 

A product positioned perfectly half-way between home and professional use, Calipso is suited to a variety of applications - expressing Artemide's traditional approach to deliver high performance lighting with a unique and emotional expressiveness.


Available September/October 2017. Approx €800
