The classic suspension lamp with Murano ground glass arms is denuded of all its décor. Only the skeleton remains: a light geometric frame that recalls the threedimensional development of a crystal. Handmade by welding together hundreds of metal rebar elements, Lightweight merges the contemporary design of Tom Dixon with a semiartisanal production process, half-way between innovation and tradition. Eight small transparent and satin finish blown glass diffusers rest on each of the arms of Lightweight, diffusing an intense light in every direction. Its strong personality and dimensions enhance its decorative appeal, making it suitable also for settings of a significant size.

Foscarini focuses on developing new products but chooses only to put into production those that express new ideas. While inspiration is always valued, Foscarini’s development phase sometimes takes years of progressive research to analyze materials, shapes, processes and operating modes that sometimes lead to results drastically different from the initial concept.

This is why Foscarini lamps are so innovative yet built to weather the whim of trends and become true classics.
