Spokes Led Suspension Lamp

spokes led suspension lamp

spokes led suspension lamp

Design Garcia Cumini, 2015
Varnished steel, aluminum, ABS
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Spokes suspension lamp was inspired by images of antique oriental lanterns and less exotic aviaries. The designers observed the spokes of a bicycle wheel and this is what gave the lamp its name. The result is soft shapes and a lightweight lamp which holds the light allowing it to filter out into the room. The lightweight quality of the project combines with the solidity of its forms in metal rod and the practicality of its LED light source allowing it both to light up surfaces perfectly and project an interplay of light and shade onto the walls with a magical multiplication effect. The development of the project into two forms, two sizes and two color variants highlights its versatility making Spokes particularly suitable for both living spaces and public venues and ideal in large architectural contexts as well in its multiple compositions.

The opaque epoxy powder varnished steel spokes are attached to the upper part by two ABS/polycarbonate discs and to the lower part of the aluminium module that acts as the housing and heat sink for the two LED boards. The electric cable that powers the boards is invisible, because it is housed in one of the spokes. The suspension cable is in stainless steel and the electric cable is transparent. The ceiling rose and zinc-coated metal bracket has a shiny white batch dyed ABS covering. Spokes suspension lamp is offered in three sizes with a choice of finish options.

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."
