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.


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.

Zapote Bar, Rosewood Mayakoba

Playa del Carmen, Mexico 2021

A day-to-night experience in a luxurious setting.

The Zapote Bar lighting concept pursues a twofold purpose: to shape a relaxed and comfortable environment for its diners while also bringing to the fore some of the distinctive features of its architecture and interior design.

In keeping with this twin track approach, we based the lighting project on strategically using indirect lighting to enhance specific aspects, such as the wooden beams made from local timber. A prime feature that lends character to the setting. The restaurant also hosts a private bar framed in tiles. Here, we chose ambient lighting that reveals the varying shades of the ceramics backed up by lighting built into the furnishings.

We added decorative luminaires to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. In the restaurant’s outdoor area in the midst of the greenery we used spotlights to enhance the jungle-like, contemporary setting. Thick tallow candles provide intimate and subdued lighting.
