arturo alvarez - Emotional light

arturo alvarez customises and adapts the designs of our catalogue and develops special models to offer a personal touch, different and unique, to every project. We modify sizes and finishes to meet aesthetic and technical requirements.

A source of inspiration

We create unique handmade lighting inspired by the nature that surrounds us and by relations between human beings.

This influence is in our collections. Tempo means a reflection on the rhythm of life. The sea is expressed in the organic volumes of coral, a collection that shined in Hollywood. The hand-moulded curves of Nevo evoke the forms of nature and Aros is a clear example of artisan techniques with decontextualised materials.

Emotional light

All our production is handmade, a way of working that is part of our brand's core values and that converts them in truly unique lamps, made with techniques often inspired in the traditional arts and crafts. Human well-being through the hedonistic enjoyment of the object is the concept that lies behind our work, and it is obtained from quality finishes and care for details.

Innovation in materials

arturo alvarez takes materials out of their usual context up to the point of achieving surprising results. All designs radiate a subtle elegance and delicacy, full of movement and shine an intense light through them.

In 2014 patented SIMETECH®, a handmade material suitable for creating large volumes, with different textures and light capacity awarded with a Best of Year 2014 of Interior Design Magazine.

Designing with LED

Concern about the environment and responsible business are two constants in the processes of design and production at arturo alvarez. You will find all the available models in our site.

The different formats of the LED light sources offer multiple possibilities when it comes to lighting design, and their reduced heat emission makes them more versatile to use with materials like pressed cellulose, Japanese cord or our SIMETECH®.

Arturo Alvarez

Curiosity is the virtue that guides the design process of Arturo Alvarez, creative director of the firm, who through exploration, taking quotidian materials out of their natural context, gets to new and surprising uses.

He is at no. 22 on the Arch tonic's ranking of the Top 200 Designers and one of Spain's Best Contemporary Designers, according to Culture Trip.
