Foscarini Filo LED Table Lamp
Designers: Andrea Anastasio
Filo comes from the desire to display the individual parts that go into a lamp - the light source, decoration and electrical wiring - bringing out their structural and aesthetic characteristics, simplifying the grammar and syntax. Its essential character is the result of the choice of using decoration to play a fundamental role, incorporating elements that are not traditionally considered decorative. Hence the electrical wire establishes a dialogue with the parts in glass and the diffuser, in a rhythmical While the energy that allows the lamp to perform its purpose as lighting runs along the cord, spheres and bulbs of glass also take their place there, transforming it into the archetype of a necklace, with a porcelain body in the form of a cone that projects the light on the wire and the glass spheres, ideally positioned as a pendent. A wide range of colours enlivens the lamp with multiple identities, from watercolour tones to the transparent hues of Murano glass, bright colours with ethnic overtones to the fluorescent tones of contemporary cityscapes, making it possible to insert the lamp in a very wide range of settings.
Table lamp with semi-diffused and direct down light. The base and the rod that support the cable and decorations are made of powder coated metal. The round electrical cable is covered with coloured fabric, the ON/OFF switch on the cable is black, as is the plug. The two decorative elements are made of entirely hand-crafted mould-less hand-blown glass. The different shapes and decorations are conferred directly to the product during processing. The cone, which contains the retrofit LED lamp, is made of china and its shape is obtained in a mould. The eight default versions differ in the colour of the cable, and in the shapes and colour of the glass elements and in the colour of the base.
