twiggy reading floor lamp

Design Marc Sadler, 2008
Composite material, fiberglass
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Twiggy family is elegant and sophisticated, light and lively, able to characterize any environment with great flexibility. Its natural shape, slender silhouette and high decorative value make it suitable for identifying and marking any area.

The Twiggy reading lamp features a composite lacquered material on a fiberglass base. The diffuser guarantees maximum exploitation of the light source which directs the light downwards as well as an effective reflection of the light upwards, thanks to the transparency of the upper protection disc.

A designer, Marc Sadler has worked a long time in the sports sector, where he's experimented with new materials and innovative production processes. He has also worked successfully in furnishing and consumer products.

Available in your choice of four colors. Twiggy family is completed by the ceiling, table, floor and pendant lamps.

Riccardo Olivieri set up Foscarini Spa in Murano in 1981. Two years later, they debuted their catalog, with lamps from Carlo Urbinati and Allesandro Vecchiato, who would become the company’s managers by 1988. Eventually these new owners would move the company off the island and into Venice, as well as transition Foscarini from a glassworks shop to a major design competitor. They had already begun working with external designers in 1985, but their first success came in 1990 with Rodolfo Dordoni’s “Lumiere.” Most all lighting projects were made of glass until 1993, at which point the Havana lamp primarily used polyethylene, making it lighter, more cost-effective, and able to be used indoors and outdoors. It now resides in the MoMA in New York. Other successful lamps would come to define the company, such as the “Mite & Tite” series by Marc Sadler in 2000 (which earned a Compasso d’oro), Patricia Urquiola’s 2005 “Caboche,” and Marc Sadler’s signature lamp "Twiggy."
