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.

Ohla Barcelona Hotel

Barcelona, Spain 2011


The Ohla Barcelona Hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. A building full of history renovated by Balaguer Arquitectos Asociados in collaboration with artec3 Studio.

The goal of the lighting design was to enhance the spaces and provide a unique experience for the guests, offering them areas of comfortable and intimate atmospheres to enjoy their stay in Barcelona.

A bespoke luminaire was exclusively designed for the rooms to create continuous lines of light with no dark zones, with direct-indirect lighting. The luminaire, equipped with a fireproof mesh of translucent metallic fabric, provided high-quality lighting and elegant and sophisticated touch to the overall sleeping area of the hotel.
