lightwing floor lamp

Design Jean-Marie Massaud, 2014
Varnished aluminum, zinc alloy, super magnet
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Lightwing is made up of a slender, streamlined stem containing its LED light source with a chip especially designed to meet its technical requirements in terms of light performance. A spherical supermagnet supports a soft outline, asymmetrical screen which can be adjusted to direct light in a great many directions with a simple hand movement. Light intensity can be adjusted according to your taste with a pedal dimmer and this means that any light requirement can be satisfied using lighwing as an environment lamp producing an intense beam of light or as a reading lamp with an intimate, suffused effect. The flexibility of the reflector transforms lightwing's appearance too making it different at different times of day in a continuous interplay of light and shade, grace and solidity.

A multi-disciplinary practice devoted to brand, architecture, industrial and furniture design, Studio Massaud was founded in 1996 by Jean-Marie Massaud and Daniel Pouzet. Massaud's aesthetic is characterized by the quest for synthesis, lightness, transparency and the reduction of the superfluous. The studio is an incubator for visual ideas that explore the delicate balance between the physical environment and the economic realities of contemporary experience.

Lightwing comes in two color variants, shiny black or white with the internal section of the screen always opaque white. Essential but sophisticated elegance which is ideal for a range of environments and uses.

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."
