Turn Around Series
Artemide came to Material ConneXion looking to create a new interactive light structure that allows users to customize the length, diffusion, and flexibility of the light to adapt to any space. The Turn Around series, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, embodies the idea of freedom, flexibility, and sustainability by creating a lighting solution that’s based on a small track that can be integrated into plasterboard without interfering with the structural warping. During insallation, the user can freely bend and shape the system into different shapes and lengths to fit their space.
Together Material ConneXion’s team of material experts sourced and introduced Artemide to TEF Braids, a highly customizable textile patterning technology that creates braids and sleeves expanding (up to 10x) and contracting without the use of elasticized fibers. Artemide customized and weaved TEF Braids into the Turn Around series to control the level of light diffusion and provide a new aesthetic.
What We Did
We were looking to create an interaction between users and light and we found a material and process that represents our idea perfectly.
