a by arturo alvarez's luminaires double up as works of art and are all hand-produced in Spain, where traditional handcrafting methods are upheld and combined with modern technology to create each piece— a fusion between the past and present.

Each piece is handcrafted by a dedicated artisan, who will work on the piece for a minimum of eighty hours, resulting in an undeniable work of art. With the amount of time and attention to detail required to create each piece, it is no surprise that the a by arturo alvarez range is extremely exclusive, something that cannot be replicated en-masse.

Naturally, stainless steel mesh would prove to be quite unmalleable due to its sturdy and tough nature, making it impossible to mould and shape by hand. However, Arturo Alvarez developed Simetech, an award-winning and innovative technology that is used in the production process to soften the material, making it malleable. Thanks to this, each piece can be shaped in more ways, subtly conveying a variety of moods and emotions through their artful silhouettes.

Though the shape and silhouette may be the most eye-catching and noticeable aspect of each a by arturo alvarez piece, extra attention is also dedicated to the finishings and details. Every piece is individually coated in five layers of paint, creating the organic texture that is reminiscent of various aspects of nature that serve as the inspiration behind the luminaires.
