Foscarini Tress Suspension Light
Designers: Marc Sadler
The seduction of a woman’s tress was the initial inspiration for the Tress family of lamps. This design-come-true by Foscarini was achieved through the development of
a completely original technological process, involving a fiberglass and resin tape woven together with orderly casualness to become the structure and aesthetics of the lamp. Tress changes personality according to its colour: it is light and discrete in white, strong and decisive in black, and volcanic and totemic in red, which makes the contrast between the interior and exterior even more evident.
The mini, small and medium size of Tress hanging version has been designed to illuminate a specific area of the space below; on the other hand the big size is characterized for a more widespread light diffusion. All sizes can be used alone, to enhance a shadowy corner, or any other space in a room, or it can be used in line to create effects of perspective.
Suspension lamp with diffused and direct light. The fibreglass-based composite material diffuser is produced by modelling tape along a mould with an automatic control of the pitch / pattern, which is then liquid coated. In the large version, blown glass internal diffuser with acidetched finish, satin finish opaline glass upper screen and chromed metal frame, in the other versions chromed metal mount. Fitted with three stainless steel suspension cables for the large version, one for the other versions, and
transparent electrical cable. Ceiling rose with galvanised metal bracket and glossy chromed batch-dyed ABS cover.
Canopy decentralisation kit – multiple canopy available (up to 6 or 9 suspension lamps).
