Artemide Copernico 500 LED Suspension Lamp











Copernico 500: a breathtakingly beautiful pendant light fixture available from Stardust! The futuristic ‘Copernico 500′ suspension lamp was designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paolo Dell’Elce and created especially for Artemide.  This suspension lamp’s green footprint was carefully considered throughout the design process. The nine concentric mobile ellipses of the Artemide Copernico Lamp were created from one single piece of aluminum. The nine shapes are capable of rotating independently on two different axes, allowing for the light emission of the 384 white LEDs to be placed randomly.  From manufacturing to transportation to usage, the designers worked to achieve the lowest possible energy consumption while providing a high quality dazzling lighting design.  Because this lamp can be folded down to flat it reduces the weight and size for transport to showrooms and customers.  The use of LEDs rather than fluorescents or other bulbs enables this design to only use a total of 27 watts.  A spellbinding chandelier with cosmic inspiration: its name was inspired by Nicolás Copérnico (English Nicolaus Copernicus), the famed Renaissance mathematician and astronomer who formulated a heliocentric model which placed the Sun, rather than the Earth, at the center of the universe. Copernico is part of the innovative Artemide LED lighting product line, made by Artemide in Italy.  Part of the Copernico Series from Artemide.  Artemide Copernico; now available from Stardust with Free Shipping and a Low Price Guarantee.
