twiggy grid suspension light

twiggy grid suspension light

Design Marc Sadler, 2018
Fiberglass, composite, PMMA, varnished metal & aluminum
Made in Italy by Foscarini

A lamp-icon in its outdoor version. Twiggy Grid embodies its flexibility, clarity and strength, gathering them into an object with a vivid personality. For outdoor use, the project has been completely redesigned in the lighting components and the aesthetics of the diffuser, which becomes woven in the outdoor Grid version. The reading and table versions stand out for the successful synthesis of absolute formal simplicity and strong personality. Available in two colors to match different settings.

The Twiggy Grid outdoor features direct down light. The diffuser is made of fiberglass-based composite material and liquid coated. The diffuser is made of ribbons of composite material manually piled on the mold, and the overlapping tapes create the woven surface that is subsequently hand-coated. A laser-engraved transparent PMMA sheet in the middle catches and diffuses the light emitted by the multi chip LEDs installed along the perimeter of the aluminum frame which acts as a dissipator. An additional opaline PMMA disc screens the light. Polyester coated metal for guaranteed superior resistance to UV rays, to the weather and to chemicals. Electrical cable coated in black neoprene for outdoor use.

The 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."
