Artemide has launched a special edition light made in collaboration with Neri&Hu. The new nh1217 design continues its partnership with the Chinese design firm founded by architects Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, which began with the Yanzi collection at this year’s Milan Design Week.
nh1217 is an elegant yet practical appliance that can be used as a table lamp or suspended as a wall lamp. A white blown glass sphere slides along a brushed brass ring, which allows it to take different positions and to freely adjust and direct the diffuser. The frame becomes a support or can be adjusted to act like a hook to hang from a wall.
In line with all of Neri&Hu’s projects, nh1217 offers a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional Far Eastern design, with the white blown glass sphere reminiscent of traditional Chinese lanterns. nh1217 is a versatile light which can be used to illuminate a variety of contexts in a simple and poetic manner.
