rituals suspension lamp

Design Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, 2012
Blown satin glass, coated metal
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The challenge was to translate the lightness of washi paper used in oriental lanterns into a group of glass lights. Only Foscarini's experience, combined with the skill of master Murano glassmakers made this creation possible. A family of lamps all concentrated on the diffuser and defined by the volume and material nature of glass. Lamps with diffused light, available in two versions with G9 or E27 lampholder. A collection of three diffuser shapes in hand-blown glass made using a glass-blowing procedure without turning the glass in the mold (referred to as "stationary"); the striped effect is achieved using a mold with negative decorations which are repeated across the surface of the glass, which is subsequently ground manually "by belt" and which then undergoes immersion in acid in order to emphasize the plaster-like effect. Rituals emits a very private, evocative light. Each one has a different function and position. In a composition they form a single, luminous object for a large space or relaxation area. Three become one….

Ludovica + Roberto Palomba are a group of architects and designers based in Milan, Italy. They primarily deal with architecture, industrial design, exhibit design, art direction, communications and marketing consulting.

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."
