The Orsa suspensions were designed by the international architecture, engineering and design studio Foster + Partners. Founded in 1967, this agency is characterized by a global vision of the different disciplines that it exercises. Indeed, their philosophy aims to make the least possible distinction between architecture and industrial design, considering that these two materials feed on each other, and become one and the same entity at the end of the project.

The 1980 industrial design team has developed a wide range of products from door handles to wind turbines. For Artemide, Foster + Partners signs a range of elegant light suspensions, embodying rigor and precision. Orsa, in addition to the simple suspension, comes in two versions of candlesticks composed of three or five elements. The graphic sobriety of the design and the invisibility of the lighting source, allow the light to become the major element of these products. Uniform and not dazzling, she transforms lamps into floating shelves of light.

Orsa, is an object offering a great flexibility of applications. Set up individually in standard versions it is also possible to create custom compositions that combine several elements. Thus the multitude of these light discs, descending to different heights can constitute a surprising nebula playing with lights, transparencies and reflections.
