Foscarini Rituals 2 Suspension Light E27
Designers: Ludovica & Roberto Palomba
The challenge was to translate the lightness of washi paper used in oriental lanterns into a group of glass lights. Only Foscarini’s experience, combined with the skill of master Murano glassmakers made this creation possible. A new family of table lamps all concentrated on the diffuser and defined by the volume and material nature of glass. Lamps with diffused light.
A collection of three diffuser shapes in hand-blown glass made using a glass-blowing procedure without turning the glass in the mould (referred to as "stationary"); the striped effect is achieved using a mould with negative decorations which are repeated across the surface of the glass, which is subsequently ground manually "by belt" and which then undergoes immersion in acid in order to emphasise the plaster-like effect. Rituals emits a very private, evocative light. Each one has a different function and position.In a composition they form a single, luminous object for a large space or relaxation area. Three become one.
