Foscarini Le Soleil Suspension Light E27
Designers: Vicente Garcia Jimenez
Suspended architecture that recalls the outline of the Guggenheim Museum in New York: this is the first impression of Le Soleil suspension lamp, a luminous sphere made up of irregular bands that act like reflective surfaces inside and like a diffuser outside, creating a soft, attractive hanging glow. The use of a material that does not reveal the light, helps to create the special luminous effect of this lamp, with beams of light projected upwards and direct illumination downwards, to highlight a precise area of the space.
The irregular edge of the bands adds movement to the volume of Le Soleil, with an architectural effect that renders it different every time, according to the observer’s point of view. The choice between different colours emphasizes its expressive nature and warm, friendly and playful style. Le Soleil is a star in the domestic and public firmament, an irresistible visual centre of attraction, alone or multiplied inside a space.
