Design Story

The Design

The Foscarini lamp Aplomb by Lucidi & Pevere guarantees a concentrated, even illumination of the surface underneath. Formed from untreated concrete, a material familiar from modern architecture, aplomb is characterised by its compact expression of strength: a feature reflected in the name: "aplomb" - a Ballet pose of secure stability. This solidity contrasts with the delicate shape of the lamp - a rawness and elegance which also accounts for its popular appeal. The Foscarini Aplomb can be used both as an individual item, such as over a table, or in composition - as a series or at different heights - as an expressive light composition. The available colours emphasize different aspects of the lamp: in grey it acts as a purist object, in brown and white a much more graceful elegance.

Manufacturer

The Venetian lamp manufacturer Foscarini was founded in 1981 as a producer of lamps made of Murano glass; however as a manufacturer Foscarini has always oriented its production processes to the respective design, thus the portfolio was able to quickly evolve away from glass. Foscarini regards itself as a research studio, and one which is committed to the implementation of innovative concepts. The result is a mixed portfolio of contemporary design classics such as the Havana floor lamp, a work represented in MoMA, or the iconic Le Soleil Parete. In terms of quality and environmental management Foscarini was one of the first Italian companies to be certified for it quality and environmental management.
