Detailed ergonomic research and the latest 3D design technology allowed Zaha Hadid Architects to generate Genesy’s complex geometries. The sequence of expansions, protrusions and folds follow a formal algorithm of fluidity shaped by functional and ergonomic considerations. Genesy provides both direct and indirect lighting.
The primary components of this organic analogy are transformed from abstract diagrams into Genesy’s fluid design.
Genesy provides both direct and indirect lighting, with a linear halogen up-lighter in the head and an adjustable LED spot projector in the lower section, concealed by a semi-transparent screen in the same shade as the lamp. Touchpad power and dimming controls are discreetly housed within the central body of the lamp, allowing Genesy to satisfy both aesthetic and functional demands.

Zaha Hadid Architects exploration and research into systems of growth in the natural world have informed the distinct formal language of the Genesy lamp for Artemide. As in the organic development of trees, a sweeping canopy emerges through an extensive interconnected supporting network at the base.
Floor lamp. Direct LED light and indirect light (halogen and flourescent) are manageable separately by two touch dimmers placed on the body lamp.

The studio’s research into the evolutionary systems of the natural world informed the distinctive formal language of the Genesy lamp for Artemide. Echoing the growth pattern of trees in a forest, a sweeping canopy emerges through an interconnected supporting network at the lamp’s base. The components of this organic analogy are transformed from abstract diagrams into Genesy’s fluid design.

Power and dimming operations are controlled by touch-pad technology sensors housed within the lamp’s central body, allowing Genesy to satisfy differing lighting tasks whilst simultaneously illuminate any environment to the users’ specific requirements.

Natyure continues to inform the design as these branches frame voids, enhancing the contrast between positive and negative, convex and concave, tension and compression.”
The lamp’s structure increases in complexity as it rises. Like a growing organism, the central support sprouts thick branches. Nature continues to inform the design as these branches frame voids, heightening the contrast between positive and negative, tension and compression. Following this formal logic, further branches spring from the central structure to support the main light source.
Nature continues to inform the design as these branches frame voids, enhancing the contrast between positive and negative, convex and concave, tension and compression. These branches follow the coherent formal logic of morphology and spring from the central structure to support the light source. The Genesy lamp epitomizes the symbiosis between the sensual fluidity of the natural world and the exacting tolerances made possible by state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies.

The primary components of this organic analogy are transformed from abstract diagrams into Genesy’s fluid design. The lamp’s structure increases in complexity as it rises from the floor. Like a growing organism, the central support sprouts branches that adopt a greater radial geometry to enhance the dynamic tensional forces of the structure.
A linear halogen up-lighter is housed within the upper surface of the head whilst in the lower section, a semi-transparent screen the same color as the lamp conceals an adjustable LED spot projector as a direct task light.
