Artemide takes part in the solidarity project Refettorio Ambrosiano (in the parish theater of the Greco district in Milan) by lighting up the completely refurbished spaces now set aside for an initiative of generosity.

Refettorio Ambrosiano welcomes people to nourish them physically, intellectually and spiritually, through the beauty of the place. Food, works of art, people, ties and relationships, moods and situations of life, all small fragments of humanity, where light has the task of stimulating and encouraging.

Inside, natural light is important and can be used at different times of the day. The lighting design developed by Artemide is integrated, in dialogue with the natural rhythm, offering a supplement when the sunlight is not sufficient. The project mainly covers the entrance, the dining hall and the perimeter spaces.

In the entrance the guests of the dining hall are welcomed by Copernico lamps, luminous sculptures, light and flexible in space, designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paolo Dell’Elce.

In the dining hall, on twelve tables by important names in contemporary design, the Nur lamps by Ernesto Gismondi, with their characteristic bell-like form, are placed two by two.

The light of Artemide is also the protagonist of the kitchens and the service spaces
