a-emotional light Lampmaking

The manufacturer “a-emotional light” was born under the name “by arturo alvarez” in Galicia in 1994. Over the last 25 years, master artisan Arturo Álvarez, its founder, turned this Spanish brand into an international benchmark in decorative lighting before passing the baton to Marcos Rioseco and Miguel Martínez. In this new phase, its current owners continue to produce lamps, faithful to the original pillars of the company, but now under the slogan evolution, always with the aim of thrilling their customers and making them feel that they are in front of artworks.

The lamps and lighting systems of this manufacturer, mostly made of stainless-steel mesh, have organic and irregular shapes inspired by the landscapes and natural light of Galicia. In recent years they have won international awards and been exhibited in museums such as the Museum of Decorative Arts in Barcelona. Present in more than 80 countries, the lamps illuminate halls, offices, hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants: Hyatt, Marriott, Google and Spotify, for example. Combining innovative techniques and using local raw materials has allowed its artisans to create durable and ecological devices with unthinkable and unique touches.
