Every context of life can be associated with a different atmosphere, each understood as a microenvironment in which an event may occur where one or several people are protagonists in a room. In the company’s own words: “Artemide proposes products capable of meeting people’s multiple needs and offering the light performance characteristics most suited to each moment of life. It is light that is flexible and adaptable, which produces the optimum visual precision, and consumes the minimum environmental resources.”

Founded by Ernesto Gismondi in 1959, Artemide has production centers in Italy, France, Germany, the USA, Hungary and the Czech Republic, operating through 16 subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and 35 exclusive distributors. With a goal of satisfying all contemporary lighting needs, whether you seek lamps for moments of relaxation at home, or large sophisticated installations for lighting public and private professional activities, there is one solution to every challenge. It is Artemide light.

“Rezek is an Artemide brand, with American product development and manufacturing,” explains Andrew Fisher, owner of Arkitektura of San Francisco. “Founded by designer Ron Rezek in 1978, the Rezek company has produced distinctly creative designs with quality construction for its American made lighting products, gaining strong recognition and appreciation among the architectural and interior design community for both its residential and commercial products.”

Whether you seek table lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, wall ADA lamps, ceiling lamps, suspended lamps, or recessed, track lighting, outdoor lighting or linear systems, Arkitektura of San Francisco is here to assist you in discovering the Artemide intelligent light that is right for you.

Hello everyone, 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and well!

In accordance to the SF Bay Area "Shelter in Place" mandate we are doing our part to help stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Please know that we here at Arkitektura San Francisco have decided to close both our showrooms effective Tuesday, March 17th until further notice. 

During this time, we will be working remotely and are here to support you. 
In preparation we have available visual presentations of our showroom, enabling you to virtually see what is on our showroom floor currently. We can guide you through product selections, with finishes, fabric and leather options. We will in turn get samples to you as soon as they are available to us.

Most of our vendors have confirmed that in the interest of their team's safety, they are also closing during this time. Therefore, please note, that we are experiencing delays in both production and shipping. We are working closely with all of our partners and we will make sure to update you all as soon as any new information is provided to us.
