Given the introduction of one stunning contemporary design after another, it would be equally easy to forget that Artemide also have some Venetian glass chandeliers in their catalogue.
That would be a pity because they are very good! Here is Pantalica:
There are also a two light and a three light applique, and they all come in black or white:
They used to come in more colours, and in a multicoloured version. You will find these at auction.
But other wonderful, wacky designs still are (just) available, and in bright colours!
And the Fenice pendants, which come in three sizes:
and (now) five colours: white, orange, topaz, red and blue.
See?! They are great, with a very topical retro feel (they date from the early to mid 1990s). They are kept in the catalogue because there are designers who know them and continue to specify them (and they are an important part of Artemide's heritage). But Artemide do not put them in Architonic or our Light Finder, so their days are numbered, because young interior designers won't find them.
For example, the wonderful Giocasta, at the head of this post, which comes in a long version, a short version and as a wall light, is only available until stocks run out -- they won't be making any more:
and Artemide have removed them from their web site.
This is ridiculous -- it is exactly the kind of design that is currently going for lots of money in vintage shops! So, come on, you chaps -- specify them!
The details of the other ones are on the Artemide web site still. I've provided the links.
