ARTEMIDE LIGHTS UP THE EAST AT CLERKENWELL DESIGN WEEK
This year’s Clerkenwell Design Week sees Italian lighting luminary Artemide join the ranks of forward-thinking manufacturers who have embraced the festival as one of London’s premiere design events. Artemide’s presence at Clerkenwell Design Week 2012 is an impressive one, with a public installation in St
John’s Square and new collections on display in The Tunnel in the Farmiloe Building.
Solar Tree by Ross Lovegrove – St John’s Square
The Solar Tree by Ross Lovegrove for Artemide, will illuminate St John’s Square from May until September. Debuting during Clerkenwell Design Week, the Solar Tree is a public lighting product powered by solar energy, with an impact that is tantamount to that of an inspiring art installation.
Ross Lovegrove refers to the Solar Tree as “a project celebrating design, nature, and art, and representing the DNA of our time.”
