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.

Mind the light

Light links the urban space and its people in a direct and intuitive way

Mind the light is an ephemeral light installation designed for the Filux light festival in Mexico City that aims to link the urban space and the people in a direct and intuitive way.

Three rectangular frames of light placed in the middle of a pedestrian route invited visitors to gather and interact. When visitors entered the frames, their shadows were cast on the sidewalk and surrounding buildings, altering their perceptions of the night-time urban space they usually take for granted. The frames also altered their sense of themselves, as well as of each other. And, of course, they proved irresistible to those looking to take selfies.

Vinyl signs saying “Mind the Light” at the base of each frame mimicked the alert signs found in train stations and other public spaces. Here, though, the pun on “mind” was a reminder to be conscious of the richness light brings to our lives.
