Foscarini Dolmen LED Floor Lamp
Designers: Ferruccio Laviani
Floor lamp for installation resting against a wall for diffused and reflected light. The lamp consists of a laser-cut sheet of aluminium bent using a pressure bending machine and hand-finished. The aluminium is anodised and subsequently liquid coated with transparent varnish or coloured paint. There are two opaline PMMA diffusers, the front one is slightly embossed. There is a plate - also in transparent PMMA - between the two diffusers, which diffuses light from the multichip LEDs installed on the long laser-engraved in the areas aligned with the portholes to concentrate the light reflection. Transparent dimmer and electrical cable, a small canopy holder is compulsory for wall.
One of the most iconic designs in Foscarini's history, reworked to adapt to the new opportunities offered by LED technology: Dolmen, designed by Ferruccio Laviani in the mid-Nineties. A piece with a forceful symbolic value, expression of a lamp-sculpture concept that never escapes notice, thanks to the exceptional character of the monolithic form, with four large openings similar to the portholes of a ship, and the unusual positioning against the wall. The use of a dimmable LED source that provides warm, uniform light, has made it possible to reproportion the lamp’s design, making it slimmer in a lucid aesthetic adjustment. The finishes transform its personality, suggesting different feelings and settings: matte orange with an industrial tone or a matte brushed aluminium for hightech inspiration, or a warm bronze colour. In all versions, Dolmen brings its forceful character and immediately recognizable personality to any space.
