Atelier Areti pared lighting down to its main three components: an illuminating element, the base, and the stem/arm. They released the Elements Collection during Milan Design Week, forming part of the exhibition ‘inside looking out’ by H+O. The simple exercise they assigned to themselves was to take one of the three main elements and transform the standard archetype.

Atelier Areti was looking to focus on something new within the familiar lighting form, a basic concept that’s interpreted in a fresh, unique way. By zeroing in on a single element – and retaining the three major ones overall – they were able to control proportion, detail, and fabrication. Color also played a clarifying role to further express each composition. In fact, Elements marks the first time Atelier Areti has used color across an entire collection. Overall it’s composed of ten lighting families that are ready to make their mark on a space.
