Designers: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group for Artemide Product category

Alphabet of Light

An innovative lighting system consisting of two basic elements – a combination of straight and curved lines of light – which add up to a new seamless typeface.

The series of wall-mounted letters are formed from bent and straight elements of LED strip light joined together by magnets, with the intention to make assembly easy for the user. The system’s entire innerworkings are concealed, leaving only a minimalist and elegant product on display.
