The Twiggy lamp needs no introduction: designed by Marc Sadler who was inspired by the flexibility of a fishing rod, it has become an icon of contemporary design. Today, Twiggy has grown and become “oversized” in the Twice as Twiggy version: a significantly sized lamp dedicated to large rooms, which nevertheless retains the lightweight feel and flexibility of the original version. This goal has been achieved thanks to genuine technical artistry: the long arched rod in fact retains a slim diameter, thanks to a steel cable which is concealed within it, while the lampshade, which is both large and extremely light-weight, is balanced by the appropriately sized base. A system of counterweights allows the height-adjustment of the lampshade, fitted with 2 LED boards, with a dual effect: direct downlight and diffused up-light. In addition to the floor lamp version, Twice as Twiggy is also produced in the suspension version, featuring the same large lampshade.

Born in Austria, Marc Sadler is a French citizen who now lives in Milan. Graduated from the first course of “esthétique industrielle” at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, he is dedicated to experimentation with plastic materials, perfecting the first ski-boot in thermoplastic material at the beginning of the ’70’s. He worked with the Italian Caber (then Lotto ) for several years becoming a specialist in sports design, subsequently co-operating with all the most important international companies in America, Asia, Japan and Europe. Thanks to his previous experience in researching and experimenting new materials and production processes he was able to put this knowledge to excellent use in various sectors. Today he continues to collaborate with leading manufacturers of furniture, lighting and accessories plus large and small electric appliances.

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.
