The Gople lighting collection designed in 2018 by Bjarke Ingels’ Danish BIG studio for Artemide is still growing. After the floor, table, ceiling and suspension versions, after the mini format, and metallic finishes in silver, bronze and copper, this time Gople is reinterpreted in four new versions devoted to outdoor spaces. The central element of the project is the diffuser: its form originally made of blown glass in this case is produced in light, long-lasting plastic. Thanks to the accessories, Gople can be simply placed, hung anywhere with a climbing rope, or planted in the ground with a stake at two different heights.
Gople outdoor embodies the design idea of a tool: practical, functional, adaptable in everyday use, capable of being transformed in the interaction with the user. “Our approach to design,” explains Bjarke Ingles, “seeks to find the true essence of the idea, so we can create timeless objects that to be used for generations.” Just like the collections Alphabet of light and La Linea, also designed by BIG as open-ended systems, languages of light for communicating freely, so Gople likewise opens up to the outdoor spaces, to bring light out of doors, with great flexibility and freedom.
