A leading name in contemporary lighting designs, Foscarini Lighting strives to be “free, passionate, unconventional and right at the heart of the industry in which it thrives.” A technological and creative workshop that conceives, develops, and produces “not just lamps but pure emotions,” this brand stands out from the crowd with unmistakable character. Exploring an entire world of materials and solutions, Foscarini Lighting is a designing and technological tour de force. The brand have recently been featured by the Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, or the South German Newspaper. One of the largest daily newspapers in Germany, the feature shines a light on one of Foscarini's most celebrated contemporary designs: the Satellight. A suspended luminous globe - which Foscarini describe as being "like the moon in the night sky or a fragment of light that flies, seeking freedom" -the Satellight is a simple, immediately understandable object, but at the same time it is original and profound in its poetic lightness, that goes straight to the heart. The diffuser of handcrafted blown glass in a milk white colour is inserted in the transparent body, also made from blown glass, that as if by magic seems to support the luminous core of Satellight, capturing its light. The satin finish makes the diffuser like a “materic presence floating in the void” even when the lamp is off. When it is on, thanks to a LED source it transmits warm, soft, gentle light that never assaults the eyes of the observer, adding precious reflections to the shiny transparent glass of the enclosure.
