Lightwing Floor Lamp

Jean Marie Massaud

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview

Floor lamp with indirect and adjustable reflected light. The rod is made of extruded aluminium; the square base in zinc alloy houses the transformer and a laser-cut metal ballast. Both are epoxy powder coated. The light body in pressed aluminium acts as a heat dissipator for the LED board thanks to its inner mesh-like shape. A satin finish PMMA screen protects the LED board. The mobile screen is made of a thin laser-cut aluminium sheet, painted in matt white on the inside and in glossy black or white on the outside. It is easily adjustable thanks to a spherical ‘super magnet’ made of ‘rare earth’ housed in iron and thermoplastic material. Its transparent cable is fitted with a LED specific dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of light intensity gradually or as an ON/OFF switch. The lamp can be controlled from a wall outlet.

Lightwing means high light performance in a straightforward, poetic graphic form. A floor lamp inspired by a desire to satisfy the light requirements of the whole day, controlling both function and light experience at will. Its name reflects its fundamental characteristic: an aluminium adjustable reflector, a 'wing', a geometric shape as light as a petal which, together with a strongly architectural design, gives the lamp a timeless feel. Lightwing has a slender, streamlined stem that supports a light source housing a LED board especially designed to meet Lightwing’s light performance objectives. A spherical supermagnet supports an asymmetrical screen with a soft outline that can be adjusted to direct light in a great many directions with a simple hand movement. The flexibility of the reflector transforms Lightwing's appearance, making it different at different times of day in a continuous interplay of light and shade, grace and solidity. Light intensity can be adjusted according to taste with a pedal dimmer. Lightwing can satisfy any lighting requirements: as an ambient lamp with an intense beam of light or as a reading lamp with an intimate, suffused effect. Lightwing comes in two colour variants, shiny black or white. Essential but sophisticated elegance, ideal for a range of spaces and uses.

Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean Marie Massaud was a child fascinated by science, who dreamt of becoming an inventor. He graduated from ENSCI in Paris in 1990, and started to collaborate with Marc Berthier. While working on urbanism issues, Jean-Marie Massaud discovered the intimate link between design and architecture, relating to similar implications in the creation of our environment and of our life experience. Convinced more than ever that it is both urgent and necessary for man to reinvent himself, beyond a formal and strictly hedonistic exercise, Jean Marie Massaud sees his role as a designer in a committed and decidedly political way.

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.
