Foscarini Supernova Suspension Light
Designers: Ferruccio Laviani
Supernova is a newly-born star, but its name also means “very, really, extremely new”. Just like this light whose volume is determined by two-dimensional surfaces. Supernova is a sphere, made up of 7 pairs of discs of different forms, attached in sequence onto a slightly curved suspended metal bar. And the bulb in the middle is like the incandescent nucleus of a planet. It is a full volume that is largely created by the empty spaces between the discs. The discs are made of aluminium, a material which gives this soft volume a high-tech feel and avoids glare, offering a diffused illuminance in all directions.
Suspension lamp with diffused light. Lamp consisting of 14 laser-cut slabs of 7 different shapes in aluminium: matt natural or epoxy powder coated. The special arrangement
of the internal discs guarantees optimal reflection while at the same time avoiding glare. Matt chromed metal support frame, stainless steel suspension cable and transparent electrical cable. Ceiling rose with galvanised metal bracket and matt chromed metal cover.
