Product description

Order number 0210010A
Year of Launch 2017
In designing the Calipso luminaire, Scottish product designer Neil Poulton has broken completely new ground. The characteristic honeycomb look is the result of a creative process that used the factor of chance to create a unique product. Neil Poulton had a photograph of the moon modulated by the image processing algorithm of a vintage computer, creating a fractal shape of unusual geometry that reflects the irregular beauty of nature within it.
Calipso consists of an organically shaped honeycomb, composed of tubes of different diameters, seemingly randomly arranged. This structure characterizes the lamp both aesthetically and visually. Not only its design is unique, but also its uniform light emission suitable for the workplace.
The result is a highly emotive lighting object that combines design and technical intelligence. Calipso is suitable for a wide range of applications - in private as well as public environments.

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.
