Satellight Table Lamp

from foscarini

satellight table lamp

satellight table lamp

Design Eugeni Quitllet, 2017
Hand-blown glass
Made in Italy by Foscarini

A suspended luminous globe, like the moon in the night sky or a fragment of light that flies, seeking freedom. 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 in handcrafted blown glass in a milk white color is inserted in the transparent body, also in 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 "meteoric presence floating in the void" even when the lamp is off. When it is on, thanks to a dimmable 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. Satellight is also available in a suspension version.

Satellight table lamp offers a diffused and direct down light. The lamp consists of two hand-blown glass elements. The transparent glass cone makes up the frame, containing and supporting the glossy white blown glass globe which contains the LED light source. This lamp with a built-in LED light source is available with a On/Off switch on the transparent cable or with a touch dimmer version.

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."
