Ernesto Gismondi:
A Retrospective

An inventive designer with a background in aeronautical engineering, founder Ernesto Gismondi brought fresh industrial concepts, materials and finishes to his lighting designs that established Artemide as a brand respected across the world for their dedication to ingenuity, innovation and sustainability. Gismondi began his legendary career in lighting in 1960 by co-founding Studio Artemide S.a.s.—which later became Artemide Group—with designer Sergio Mazza.

With a lifetime’s work of research, tinkering and philosophizing on light’s impact on humans, nature and human nature, Artemide CEO Carlotta de Bevilacqua was uniquely positioned to talk with us about wellness through light, the future of lighting design and how Artemide designs come to fruition.
