The Nesso is a design by Giancarlo Mattioli, Gruppo Architetti Urbanisti Citta' Nuova.Born in 1933, Giancarlo Mattioli is an Italian designer who rose to fame during the 1950s and 60s.
His most famous work, the Nesso Table Lamp, is part of the collection at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and other important museums, and remains stylish and modern despite being created in the mid 20th century. The celebrated Nesso won first prize at the Studio Artemide Domus competition in Milan in 1965.
In the 1960s he formed the Gruppo Architetti Urbanisti "Città Nuova" together with Pierluigi Cervellati, Umberto Maccaferri, Franco Morelli, Gianpaolo Mazzucato and Mario Zaffagnini.
Founded in 1960s, Artemide is one the most known illumination brands in the world. Known for its "The Human Light" philosophy, Artemide is nowadays synonym with design, innovation and made in Italy.
The Human Light is the guiding philosophy of Artemide, its way to imagine and design light, a revolutionary intuition that radically changed the way of conceiving lighting equipment based on man and his well-being.
Artemide's products are much more than highly refined design objects, ensuring a top technical performance – they are objects born from man’s experience to satisfy man’s needs.
Since the 1990s, with the launch of the The Human Light philosophy, promoted ba Carlotta de Bevilacqua, Artemide has changed the way to conceive and develop its products. The guiding idea was to start from people's needs in terms of light, and understanding first and foremost how to respond to individual needs in the different spaces and stages of life.
With The Human Light Artemide intends to illuminate space, as well as man's activities and needs inside a space. The goal is both simple and extremely complicated:
The Human Light means placing competence of Artemide at the service of man and responding to the need for flexibility and adaptability with the utmost visual accuracy and the minimum consumption of environmental resources.
