Make three from one: The Melampo lamps by Artemide can do more than just shine. All lamps from the Melampo collection shine even twofold or threefold! One click is enough and the lampshade changes its position. This way the light of the Melampo lamps can either shine direct downwards, slanted, or straight up. This means that the lamps from the Melampo collection can be used as reading lamp as well as ambient light, when the conical lampshade is used like an uplight.
The Melampo collection's elegant and classic design by Artemide convinced us with its surprisingly flexible application allowing direct or indirect lighting. This way the world famous lighting manufacturer Artemide fulfills its philosophy that focuses on the human being, their changing activities in the room, and their well-being. Melampo lamps perfectly adapt to the requirements of the user and create a cosy atmosphere in private as well as business environments. As reading lamp or for ambient lighting, Melampo lamps are multi-functional design lamps. An eye-catcher is also the material of the lampshade: The plastic reinforced satin shade looks like aluminium when switched off and turns into a soft, luminous white when switched on.
Next to its high functionality the Melampo collection is also distinguished by its straigh-forward, modern design, which looks familiar and homey nonetheless thanks to its classic conical lampshade. Melampo lamps are versatile in their application. The collection includes the table lamp Melampo Tavolo, the floor lamp Melampo Terra, the night light Melampo Notte, the wall lamp Melampo Parete, as well as the over-sized floor lamp Melampo Mega, an impressive sight with its height of 175 cm.
The illuminant of the Melampo collection is either a conventional light bulb, an energy-saving bulb, or a halogen bulb. The base of the Melampo lamp is made of lacquered aluminium in aluminium grey or bronze metallic. The lampshade made of satin and polycarbonate can be adjusted into three position – only the night light Melampo Notte only works with two positions.
The Melampo collection by creative French designer Adrien Gardère for Artemide was numerously awarded, like with the Red Dot Award and the French „Étoile Observeur du Design". For the designer himself design is more than just styling. He wants to realise his ideas in a useful manner and for that uses a clear and functional design vocabulary. His Melampo collection for Artemide is clearly one of his best!
