New lighting from Artemide this year includes the Altrove by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, a decorative wall or ceiling light that uses transparent wires to allow the light to flow. It's the type of lighting that begs the question, "Is it really there?" More substantial is Ross Lovegrove's Cosmic Leaf, available as a table, floor or ceiling lamp. Each version is made of textured methacrylate set in a chromed steel structure, with an inviting come-hither curve. Also shown from the ceiling is a variation, the Cosmic Angel. The Chilone in brushed steel is designed by Ernesto Gismondi. The outdoor luminaire uses low energy LEDs and can be grouped in a variety of installations, given the range of heights.
