Pylon Floor Lamp

pylon floor lamp

Design Diesel Living by Foscarini, 2015
Dyed linen, PVC & varnished steel
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Pylon was named after the metal base, with its embossed textured finish, inspired by the vision of an electric framework in an industrial landscape. It then adds a special touch of fashion and tailoring to this image by combining it with a diffuser in ivory tinted linen coupled with PVC that bestows this lamp with an unmistakable personality. The pure linen fabric - with a purposely uneven weft and warp, dyed and treated against fraying- is molded like a dress onto the body of the diffuser with hand-pleated folds which give it a 3D shape, recalling an industrial filter or part of a turbine. Designed by the Diesel Creative Team and produced by Foscarini, Pylon is available in two matching versions: floor lamp - which can also be turned into a reading lamp since it is height-adjustable - and suspension lamp. Characterized by its warm and soft luminosity, Pylon is perfect both in a more intimate setting, such as a bedroom or living room, as well as in different communal areas, such as restaurants, public houses or a hotel lobby.

The Pylon floor lamp offers diffused and direct up and down light. The outline of the opaline PVC polycarbonate diffuser is covered with pure linen fabric, with a purposely-uneven weft and warp of the fabric achieved by hand. The fabric, treated against fraying, is then bent and glued to achieve the pleated effect. The frame is made of white powder-coated steel. The frame is made of laser-cut steel coated with black powder paint with an embossed-rough finish. Telescopic rod, which extends by approximately 13.8 inches with external knob lock. The transparent cable is fitted with a dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of luminous intensity gradually or as the on/off switch.

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."
