ART Centric Lighting is a collection of lighting fixtures that prioritizes the most effective ways of lighting works of art, both from a technical and narrative point of view.
Every artist, when they create a work, transmits a message through matter, with its thousand shades of color, its shape, its shadows, its surface and its texture. Highlighting the artist’s message and making it live in the visitor’s eyes means enhancing the physicalness of the work itself, without altering it.
The basic principle behind ART Centric Lighting is therefore to respect the works of art, and turn them into stars, like actors on a stage. It is by no coincidence that the small ART Centric Lighting units are in reality miniature theatre lights, made by ADB, a company with a long history in the theatre world.
They are not simply light sources with an elegant non-invasive design, but are fixtures with professional optical units that generate high-quality, adjustable light.
The technology that ART Centric Lighting makes available is the result of team work, which brings together precious know-how in different fields.
- The considerable lighting engineering know how of OSRAM, a long-standing manufacturer of bulbs for all kinds of use, and a world leader in LED technology.
- The professional skill of ADB Stagelight, a 100-year-old top supplier of lighting systems for theatres and major television studios throughout the world, where the approach to lighting design is a mixture of art and technical perfectionism.
- The mastery of a group of experts in the specific field of museum lighting, who can boast illuminating both permanent and temporary exhibitions of precious modern and ancient works of art.
- The innovation capacity of Claypaky (to which ADB belongs), a world leader in digital lighting, automated lighting fixtures, and electronic control systems.
This team of experts itself is on hand to offer museum curators and private collectors of works of art specialist advice, ranging from the choice of the most suitable lights for each situation to installation design and control systems.
