ambient task lighting
Living at the intersection of home and work, Sisifo balances task and ambient lighting needs while delivering high efficiency LED lighting without compromise. Designed by Scott Wilson for world-class lighting house Artemide, Sisifo was recognized with a 2016 Compasso d'Oro, considered the oldest and most prestigious international design award in the world.
With its spherical central articulation, Sisifo’s diffused disk of light gracefully balances and easily rotates 360 degrees. The small footprint weighted base and double ball joint were designed for minimum encumbrance, allowing the lamp head to effortlessly float and the light source to adjust for any application. The intuitive on/off touch dimmer control at the front of the base invites user interaction and Sisifo's powerful light source utilizes a fresnel pattern to evenly spread the light while eliminating harsh shadows.
From the moment the lamp is switched on, there is a sense of magic. The controls are crisp, the movements are smooth and the light is soft, making it perfect to use on both larger tables and smaller bedside surfaces.
