flip wall light

Design Simon Pengelly, 2013
Injection molded coated polycarbonate, coated metal or aluminum (LED)
Made in Italy by Foscarini

A wall sculpture with a dynamic frame, this lamp merges functionality with style to offer maximum versatility as a light source. Flip is a lamp to admire but also to touch and direct its warm luminosity. It is beautiful when switched on or off. Resulting from an idea of interactivity, for which the user can decide whether to adjust the brightness, direction and the quality of light with a simple movement, Flip makes it possible to move the diffuser in five different positions for a multitude of effects. Offered in white with either a halogen or LED light source.

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."
