Le Soleil Wall Lamp

from foscarini

le soleil wall lamp

le soleil wall lamp

Design Vincent Garcia Jimenez, 2013
Polycarbonate, metal
Made in Italy by Foscarini

A shape consisting of overlapping bands, which are not symmetrical but instead dynamically irregular, acting as elements that reflect inwards and diffuse outwards, creating a warm and sunny effect, which is both graphic and luminous at the same time. A concept which extends the Le Soleil suspension lamp to become a proper system, including a wall lamp model, with the same unmistakable scenic presence and appealing brightness: standalone or in matching compositions.

The wall version of Le Soleil is not a simple adaptation of the suspension model; indeed, it has been completely redesigned in its proportions, in line with its usage on the wall. The lamp, which again is created by overlapping different bands, takes up less room in terms of depth, while retaining a significant presence when observed up-front. Its shape is irresistibly eye-catching and its light is diffused gently in the surrounding space.

The Le Soleil wall lamp is available in two colors, each one corresponding to a different personality: red and white. Teamed with the suspension model in a living room, or alone in a hall or corridor, up a staircase, beside a bed instead of a traditional bedside lamp or floor lamp: with the Le Soleil wall lamp, a universe of possibilities opens up, thanks also to the irregular pattern of the bands, which make it different every time, depending on how you look at it.

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."
