Glass Drop Suspension Lamp

glass drop suspension lamp

glass drop suspension lamp

Design Diesel Living by Foscarini, 2015
Metallized blown glass, thermoplastic material
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Glass Drop resembles a white-hot drop of glass before it takes shape. The technological treatment which gives the blown glass body its characteristic metallic appearance confers it a double life. When it is switched off it is the decorative effect of its mirrored surfaces which dominates, when it is switched on a warm light filters through its iridescent diffuser. The gently undulating shape of the upper part harmoniously accentuates its droplet effect.

Glass Drop is particularly striking in a multiple installation, like a jewel made up of many pendants. Linear or round, Foscarini's multiple ceiling flange allows you to put up to nine suspension lamps together, combining functionality with a harmonious look.

Glass Drop suspension lamp offers diffused light; the diffuser is made of glossy finish hand-blown glass; the conical surface undergoes "vacuum metallising", a technique that renders the glass polished and reflective like metal when off. The shape of the glass at the top is slightly undulated to accentuate the drop effect. When the lamp is turned off, it looks like chromed metal, whereas it turns into a warm pale grey color when the lamp is on. The mount is made of injection molded and "vacuum metallised" thermoplastic material with the Diesel logo in relief. Stainless steel suspension cable and transparent electrical cable, ceiling flange with galvanized metal bracket and matt black batch-dyed ABS cover. Electric decentralization kit available, as well as multiple canopies for compositions up to 6-9 lamps. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

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."
