Artemide | Yanzi Light

Adopting Artemide’s guiding philosophy of “The Human Light,” where lighting is a means of improving quality of life, Neri&Hu’s design is a poetic interpretation of the concept. The charming image of birds resting on scaffolding or chirping within a woven bamboo cage—these are the delightful scenes of street life that one encounters daily in Shanghai.

The collection, including pendant lamp, floor lamp, and table lamp, consists of black structures with brushed brass “yanzi”, or swallows, perched atop. Featuring two types of birds, an adjustable track system, as well as various extensions, there are endless possibilities to configure the light. With elegant lines and minimal shapes, Yanzi pays homage to both the urban and the natural, the rigid and the organic, while injecting a sense of playfulness into the design.
