Foscarini Twiggy Floor Lamp

Foscarini Twiggy Floor LampFoscarini Twiggy Floor Lamp: Defying Dimensions

The Foscarini Twiggy Floor Lamp casts a graceful silhouette, adding charm and style to any living space. Its arcing stem bears some resemblance to the classic Arco Lamp, and solves similar design problems, but the construction and aesthetic of Marc Sadler’s invention is pure 21st Century.

The Foscarini Twiggy Floor Lamp defies its dimensions as it rises up to 215cm from its lacquered glass fibre base to provide light that is both direct and diffused through a transparent upper disc. Extra stem sets can be ordered to increase the range of the lamp for larger rooms.

The flexible and resistant compound stem combines with a clever system of counterweights to achieve the seemingly impossible. The flavour of the lamp is altered through the choice of colour: black, white, yellow or red are available.

Marc Sadler: The Experimenter
French designer Marc Sadler is as well-known in the sports sector as he is in the world of interior design. He has worked with companies such as Nike in experimenting with new materials for use on the field or track.

The Foscarini Twiggy Floor Lamp is a perfect example of how Sadler’s experimentation with materials and modern construction techniques has revolutionised the concept of interior design. Sadler is also active on the teaching circuit, holding seminars in design schools and universities throughout Italy, for example the Domus Academy and the Politecnico di Milano.
