Artemide Nur 1

The Nur by Ernesto Gismondi for Artemide is a big bold and beautiful light, assuming that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you want a light that fades into the background do not buy this one, it will be seen and it will be commented on. For what it is worth I love it, one of my all time favourites. The Nur diffuser is spun from a single piece of aluminium with its surface deliberately faintly ringed so that evidence of its manufacture is visible and it hangs from a grey ceiling rose via three slim steel wires with its power cable hanging loose in the centre. It comes in anodized aluminium or anthracite grey both with a white interior and a sand blasted glass top piece which glows softly with referred light. It is capable of being very bright and we sell it in two versions, white light or with an optional pink/blue reversible filter which fills the diffuser with colour. The Nur is hardy, stout of heart and industriously post industrial, a great big lug of a light.

Ernesto Gismondi was born in Sanremo, Italy in 1931. In 1957 he gained a degree in Aeronautical Engineering at the Milan Polytechnic and in 1959 gained a degree in Missile Engineering at the Professional School of Engineering in Rome. However none of this stopped him from becoming a lighting designer or from founding Studio Artemide, later to become plain old Artemide which went on to become one of the premier lighting design companies in the world. He was also part of the avant-garde movement Memphis which brought about a profound evolution in the design sector both in Italy and worldwide, oh and in his spare time he also designed various beautiful and highly successful lights for Artemide. For his great success with the company he was awarded the Compasso d’Oro in 1994, pretty incredible considering that at the same time he was also associate professor of Rocket Engines for Missiles at the Milan Polytechnic. Who says designing lighting isn’t rocket science.
