Artemide’s Copernico Luminaire is an out-of-this-world pendant lamp that consists of nine concentric rings stamped from a single plate of lightweight aluminum. 384 white LEDs line the rings, which rotate independently on two different axes, enabling the light emission to be directed and numerous spatial configurations to be obtained. Corpernico was designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua, who drew inspiration from the heliocentric theory of Nicolaus Copernicus.
