Diesel for Foscarini: The Gold Rock lamp
5 February 2015
The eye catching design is based upon volcanic rock, when it breaks and reveals a gem within. The outside is mysterious, severe and raw with its angular surface. The interior gleams in contrast like crystal, reflecting light rays to create a unique and surprising effect. The lamp is coated in metal and nylon, allowing the interior to glimmer, the Moulded ABS coating creates the almost rugged appearance outside.
The rock’s design is striking from all points of view, demanding attention, yet never dominating the space. Resulting in a design that works so well as part of a domestic or public environment. The pendant version of the Rock collection focuses light upon the space below, highlighting not overwhelming and creating a pleasant atmosphere. The floor lamp is very versatile; it can be comfortably used as a reading light when the head is adjusted as well as project light upward to illuminate an environment.
The gold Rock light assumes a different personality upon entering a range of interiors and depending upon its use, proving popular within a range of establishments.

New addition to the Aplomb range!
4 February 2015
The ever increasing popularity of concrete lighting has seen Foscarini add to the range of Aplomb lamps. The suspension Aplomb has seen an incredible demand because of its iconic style.Now Foscarini has created a matching wall light which compliments the existing pendant very well, available in three colours: white, grey and brown. They are now also available in an LED light source.
The concrete shade moulds around the diffuser inside to create a single fitment, achieving a wider range of light being diffused upwards onto walls and ceiling above. This wide diffusion creates a soft and relaxing atmosphere as the indirect light illuminates the scene without dazzling those within the space. A smaller and more delicate light is also cast downwards creating a harmonious contrast between the two, having a sophisticated effect upon the room it is situated.

Maison and Objet Key Trends for 2015
31 January 2015
The Maison and Objet event in Paris is a forecast for interior trends for the year ahead, comparable to Fashion week in Spring/Summer. This year the event has predicted four key trends based upon the popular themes and attention created by the exhibitors and exhibition visitors. The first unsurprising trend is Metallics. Particularly warm toned hues. This choice of metallic finishes has progressively become more popular for a few years now and has gradually filtered even down onto the high street! Here are our picks for the Metallic trend:
1 - Kartell Fly Precious Pendants 2 - Tom Dixon Copper Mirror Ball shade 3 - Anglepoise Original 1227 in Chrome 4 - Tom Dixon Base Copper Floor Lamp 5 - &Tradition Utzon in Copper 6 - Terzani Orten’zia Table Lamp in Gold 7 - Foscarini Birdie Table Lamp in Chrome 8 - &Tradition Flowerpot in Copper 9 - Tom Dixon Base Table Lamp in Polish Brass 10 - Kartell Bourgie Copper Table Lamp
Our second trend From Maison and Objet is Hints of Neon, maybe not to everyone’s liking but a just a hint of a bright colour can add a bright cheerful pop of colour into our homes, especially appropriate for the Spring/Summer time. It is a nod to the 90’s as Fashion has also done. Neon has been seen on textiles, furniture, home accessories and also lighting. Be brave and give it a try! Here are our Picks for Neon Trend:
1 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in orange 2 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in yellow 3 – Vibia Wind Suspension in green or orange 4 – Oluce Canopy 422 in Pink 5 – Kartell Ghost Chairs in assorted colours 6 – Kartell Cindy Table Lamp in orange 7 – Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp in Blue
The third trend on the 2015 forecast is the colour Santorini Blue a shade to provoke a Mediterranean but modern vibe, a shade of blue to create tranquillity and timeless look within a space. These are our Santorini Blue Trend options:
Our final trend noted from Maison and Objet is the Natural Minerals, the style has come from the increasing need for eco friendly home fashions and is becoming increasing popular. Aesthetics showcasing a rustic, hand crafted and natural look, often paired with pastel and neutral colours to complete the highly stylish design. Here are our picks from this theme:

Foscarini Birdie in Metallic Finishes
11 January 2015
New in from Foscarini is the Metallic Birdie table lamp, in copper and chrome shades. These are an updated version of the original Birdie lamp which are made from polycarbonate and featured colourful shades. This new addition is made completely of one of the two metals. The idea behind the different finishes is to let the owner choose the lamp’s personality, and thus reflect their own through the colour and now even the material finish of the lamp. The new lamps come in Copper and Chrome, which gives the choice between a cooler or warmer tone to match its environment.
The Foscarini Birdie is a very unique design created by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, its narrow stem is to resemble that of a tree trunk, featuring the branch on which a bird is meant to alight. This branch is to attract your touch in this same way it would for said bird, the branch has the feature of on/off and dimmer switch.
The Lamp was designed to be very user friendly, and Roberto Palomba quoted he didn’t want it to “just be a lighting ornament, rather a piece of sculpture with the added feature of it being a light”. Roberto thought practicality was important which is why the design appears friendly, harmonious, easy to use and above all highly functional with the classic reading lamp shade.
The designing couple created a range of prototypes and ideas before reaching the final design of a smooth, seamless structure which beckoned the user but stood boldly in a diversity of surroundings. The new addition of the two metal shades is a nod to the growing metallic trend, creating a chic but statement edge which has given the lamp a very high acclaim.
