A new architectural showroom and learning center is currently under construction and will be opening in Soho in early 2017. Artemide looks forward to welcoming visitors to the new space for events and training and to learn more about the brand and its products firsthand. The team is constantly seeking opportunities to collaborate on meaningful projects and causes.
