Design Ross Lovegrove, 2008
Die-cast aluminum, Thermoplastic
Made in Italy by Artemide

"Droplet is a ceiling light that appears as a pool of liquid aluminum reflecting three light pebbles. It has been generated totally by digital means and freezes in time the act of ripples that cross each other to define reflective zones and acts as a form of liquid dichroic." - Ross Lovegrove

The Droplet suspension lamp features a glossy grey, die-cast aluminum disc with reflective units (pebbles) made of injection-molded thermoplastic material with a polished chrome finish. Grey thermoplastic canopy with clear electrical cord and stainless steel cables with mounting to standard electrical junction boxes.

Ross Lovegrove studied design at Manchester Polytechnic and subsequently trained at the Royal College of Art in London. At frog design, he contributed to the design of the Sony Walkman and Apple computers. As an in-house designer for Knoll International in Paris, Lovegrove worked on the Alessandri office system. As a co-member of the Atelier de Nimes, along with Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel, he acted as a design consultant to Luis Vuitton, Cacharel, Dupont and Hermés. In 1990, he created Studio X in London. Lovegrove is inspired by forms of the natural world, the possibilities of new manufacturing techniques and the ability to evoke an emotional response in users.

The Artemide light has never been solely a function of seeing, or an opportunity for formal experimentation with lamps as objects. For more than forty years, Artemide has aimed to propose light as a companion to people, as a source of physical pleasure and mental comfort. Artemide has done so, with different work groups, searching through the whole design process, starting with a declaration of values - The human light. Beyond the definition, the human light is intelligent light. A light that knows it has to relate to people, accompanying them in their daily activities.
