BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group, named after its founder), is the symbol of the dynamism of contemporary Danish design. For Artemide, BIG wanted to create a real luminous language.

From a basic geometric monogram, BIG draws a new font. An alphabet used to write his thoughts, which also comes in an open and modular system to highlight the architecture and their circulation. Thus light becomes part of space through words, but also through graphic signs.

Three linear elements of different lengths and two circular elements of different diameters complete the system of letters, numbers and symbols.
These basic modules, with their elegant geometric proportions, can be combined to build light structures that are custom-made, simple or complex, linear or curvilinear. These suspensions, which define the space according to the architecture or the functionality of the spaces, draw each time a different illuminated landscape.

The creativity of BIG is combined with Artemide's patented optoelectronic innovation, offering a constructive principle and restoring a continuous and comfortable light.
