Gople Lamp is the latest product in the ongoing collaboration between Artemide and Bjarke Ingels Group. Gople is crafted of a pill shape, the glass is blown according to ancient Venetian techniques in Murano. The shape of the glass helps the light to diffuse a soft glow throughout, creating a comfortable ambience.
The Gople family is enriched with new versions available in a smaller size. Gople is now available as a table and floor lamp, in addition to the suspension. The new additions feature the same pill shaped diffuser crafted of handblown glass. Gople Mini is available in a suspension, table, and ceiling version. The basic form of the Gople Lamp enhances the beauty of glass, hand-processed according to an ancient Venetian technique that gradually turns white glass into crystal glass by combining both upon blowing, thus making each piece unique. More innovative finishes are added, including silver or copper vacuum metallization.
The silver, bronze, copper, and blue finishes are made with an innovative and sustainable metal vacuum deposition process.From the point of view of environmental-friendliness, “sputtering” is the absolutely cleanest coating technology for the type of metal used and because all emissions are abated, in particular those into the atmosphere of sulfuric acid and cyanides produced by galvanic processes.
Solid paint with up to 5% of solvents (compared to 75% of traditional products) is employed for the secondary protective clear coat phase.
The process generates very little waste and the resulting finish is particularly resistant over time. In any of these cases, glass finishing is designed to ensure the best relationship with the emitted light, screening the source and maximizing direct emission through transparency. The most basic version with the traditional E26 or E12 joint is designed to provide different performance levels compared to the more innovative RWB version, where colors can be combined with each other to create the desired lighting scenario.
