main works

Artec Studio carries out projects through three departments: lighting design, lab, and lights. We have arranged our works in this manner to guide you on a transversal tour through our most relevant projects. Below is a selection of projects within those categories.

lighting design

Artec Studio is dedicated to developing high-quality architectural lighting projects through close, proactive relationships with the design teams and clients. Shaping light, we create innovative lighting designs that enhance the architecture and its contents, while achieving the program and sustainable goals. Take a look at our most relevant projects.

lights

Our lights emerge from the experience developed in our lighting designs projects and the study of the function and emotion of the light interacting with space and people. The studio, by merging research, technology and taking care of details, has developed new concepts of light. Our designs are produced by recognized manufacturers and have been internationally awarded. Enjoy a selection of our luminaires designs and bespoke lights.

light art

Artec Studio’s lab is dedicated to exploring the most interactive, social, and artistic aspects of the light as a channel to create intangible and exciting light art content. This enables our team to shape the perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light.

BruumRuum!

A game of light that fills the night with content, a huge equalizer to gauge the intensity of the sound colors of city life

BruumRuum! is a permanent interactive light art installation in Barcelona that invites passing visitors—young and old alike—to participate in turning the entire plaza into a glorious game in which the sounds of city life become a light-filled visual jazz.

The installation combines color and sound through 522 inground linear luminaires embedded in a 3,300sqm area. The LEDs react to the intensity of voices and the ambient sound that the city generates using sensors that have been installed around the plaza.

In short, BruumRuum! is a game that fills the night with content, a huge equaliser to gauge the intensity of the sound colors of city life.

The Jury of the International Lighting Design Awards 2014 described the work as “a great example of social interactive light and sound.”




BruumRuum! has also received the prestigious Grand Laus Graphic Design Award, Barcelona 2014. Read the press release.
