Solar is a luminous hemisphere. Created out of polyethylene, the lamp is set on the ground and covered by a circular plane that screens the light and works concurrently as a resting surface. Designed for indoors and out, Solar is in harmony with a broad-ranging concept of living, in which the garden can become a living area. Not just a lamp but a new type of object, a contemporary hearth around which to gather and chat, at home or outside. In the indoor model, the resting surface is slightly concave, with its edges just slightly raised. The outdoor version instead has a straight resting surface that is flush with the outer edge, to allow the rain to just slip away. The surface finishes are also different: glossy white or dark wood for the indoor version, with a characteristic textured effect for the outdoor version. Decorative on its own or arranged in a composition of multiples, Solar has a retractablebase that allows you to incline it in order to change the lighting effect while remaining perfectly stable. A bright, warm and intimate centre of attraction, Solar is ideal for scenic compositions, such as a large hall or in the garden, to create suggestive light paths.

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.
