The Innovation
of Discovery

Discovery, designed by Ernesto Gismondi, is an element that does not invade the environment, totally absent and dematerialized acquires volume when it is turned on thanks to the light that draws the central emitting surface.

Compasso d'Oro Award

In 2018 it was awarded the Compasso D'Oro, for her ability to interpret research, technological and material innovation, know-how and attention to the quality of light for human wellbeing.

Patent of Invention

Discovery, thanks to its invention patent, is increasingly the perfect synthesis of Artemide's values, knowledge, innovative research and know-how.


The performance and flows are high but the effect is absolutely comfortable, so much so as to even comply with UGR standards for working environments in any installation position.

Discovery is invisible

17mm thickness

An ultra-lightweight circular aluminium profile houses an LED strip that injects light into a transparent PMMA surface with a pattern of distributed micro-incisions for maximum efficiency and uniformity.


Micro engraved PMMA

These provide a precise and precise light output according to a flow balance with respect to the emitting surface that guarantees perfect visual comfort, an immersive and constant light on both sides.

Discovery's versatility

Total flexibility in the space

Starting with the first versions of Discovery Artemide already breaks the classic patterns and preconceptions that see a clear division between design equipment and the more technical performance of systems dedicated to the office, with the introduction of colour it also opens up new applications and scenarios increasingly focused on well-being and sensitivity.

Recyclable materials

Discovery's aluminium and PMMA are perfectly recyclable thanks to easy disassembly of the components.

0 Waste Production

Intelligent design and attention to production processes minimize material waste and environmental impact.

High Efficiency

The efficiency of Discovery's optical beam technology is high so that the energy used is not wasted.

Artemide APP

Discovery is controllable with Artemide App, this advanced interaction system means that everyone is increasingly free to modify their own scenarios in an active and conscious way in favour of both personal psychological and physiological well-being and the design of dynamic and engaging spaces.

In this new scenario of social security distances, Discovery Space interprets the need to delimit personal spaces by increasing the environmental quality with a light that takes care of our well-being and can create scenographic and engaging atmospheres.

Vertically installed becomes a perfect element to separate workstations or restaurant tables, dividing spaces not only by delimiting and protecting but also adding emotion and dynamism to the eye.
