3 reasons David Village Lighting love the Foscarini Twiggy floor lamp


1.    Foscarini Twiggy: a cleverly designed modern classic


Designed in 2006 by Marc Sadler, the Twiggy floor lamp became an instant classic. The inspiration for this iconic design? The flexibility of a fishing rod - evident in the slender yet sturdy stem of the Twiggy which allows for its impressive reach, created using cleverly concealed counterweights. The flexible stem sits on a slim flat base which makes it easy to slide under a sofa or table if required.


Foscarini Twiggy White


Perfect for both home and office, Twiggy adds both flair and functionality, providing direct overhead lighting without glare as its lamps are hidden behind a diffuser. Not just a downlight, a soft reflective glow is also emitted through the transparency of the upper disc.

2. Foscarini Twiggy’s adjustable height and reach


Twiggy’s height can be adjusted to three different levels by using the two counterweights which are disguised from view in the shade. Additional stem sets further extend its height and increase its reach from 170 – 200cm. Adjustable height and reach gives Twiggy versatility making it an ideal floor light in many different spaces: over a desk, dining table, bed, sofa or armchair.

“Create and define a personal space, a welcoming area, where you can relax and feel at home even if you are far away.” Carlo Urbinati, President of Foscarini.

The Twiggy floor lamp is available to view in our brand new showroom: David Village Lighting, The Old Cinema, 5-13 Ashgate Road, Broomhill, Sheffield, S10 3BZ.


 


3.  Twice as Twiggy


In the world of the Twiggy, bigger is always better! In 2015, the thin, flexible feature of the original Twiggy became “oversized” in Twice as Twiggy, a floor lamp designed for large spaces, without foregoing lightness. Twice as Twiggy is a perfect addition, as a statement piece, in a large commercial space or design studio.


Foscarini Twice as Twiggy vs original Twiggy floor lamp“Twice as Twiggy is a colossal version of the floor lamp Twiggy, designed by Marc Sadler: an iconic piece and a space-defining lighting object,”  Carlo Urbinati, President of Foscarini.


 


As part of New York City’s Design Week, Foscarini used their Twice as Twiggy floor lamp in their aptly named photography project: ‘Twice Light’. The project, captured by photographer Gianluca Vassallo, invited New Yorkers, two strangers, to meet together on the street under a Foscarini Twice as Twiggy.


Foscarini 'Twice Light' photography project


“Under the overarching presence and warm glow of Twice as Twiggy, people were enveloped within its magical cone of light and, like thrown in a new dimension, they had the possibility to create an intimate and private zone even in a public and hectic space as the City of New York” Carlo Urbinati, President of Foscarini.

Tom Dixon: The bestsellers of 2018/19


Formed in 2002, the talented and untrained designer Tom Dixon created a brand under his own name to research and develop his industrial lighting & furniture designs. Some of Tom Dixon’s bestselling items are his earlier and most iconic pieces.


The Beat light collection was released in 2006 and has been a firm favourite amongst interior designers, architects and enthusiasts ever since.



“I was involved in an initiative in Jaipur to create alternative possibilities for the rapidly vanishing craftsmen and their skills, and the Beat Light was born from that project” - Tom Dixon. Created and inspired by the traditional brass work of the Northern Indian craftsman of Moradabad, Tom Dixon introduced these skills into his own collection. The Beat lights feature elements such as spun, braised and beaten brass, all formed by hand to make each pendant unique.


Available in four shapes: stout, tall, fat and wide, as well as four colourways.


Tom Dixon Beat Lights


The Variety in size and colour makes for a dynamic and personal display of Beat lights, ideal in a linear formation over a dining table, or as a cluster over a kitchen island.


Tom Dixon Beat Lights


The Beat family has grown over the years due to its huge popularity, expanding to table, wall and floor lamps.


Tom Dixon Beat Collection


Making technological advancements into vacuum metallisation creates new possibilities, giving life to Tom Dixon’s vastly popular Melt pendant.


In 2015, Milan’s Salone del Mobile exhibition saw an exciting array of new and experimental lighting designs, Melt was the star! During the exhibition Tom Dixon even performed with his band under a glowing canopy of Melt pendants.


Tom Dixon Melt lights


Melt resembles two pendants by Tom Dixon (Mirror ball & Copper round) which have been melted to produce this new unique design. The Melt pendants take on a warped effect in the vacuum process, a key feature being the opaque metal finish when not illuminated, then glowing transparency when lit.


Tom Dixon Melt lights


Tom Dixon’s Melt light makes the perfect cluster feature due to its irregular shape, staggering the small and large size at varied heights has a very engaging effect.

As we settle into 2019, we look forward to seeing the ever-changing trends and up-coming inventions from the creative mind of Tom Dixon. Shop Tom Dixon’s best selling lighting and keep an eye out for more exciting releases on the David Village Lighting website.

Bedroom lighting is an important aspect of your personal space, get it right and your room will be transformed into an area of tranquillity.


Lightyears Night Owl


Lightyears Night Owl: £112.20


From our knowledge and experience, we know that the type of light you choose will have an impact on the feeling and mood of your space.


A diffused or indirect light source is ideal for the bedside to promote a relaxing atmosphere. There is no risk of glare or over-exposure, let your eyes re-adjust for the evening to set the tone for restful sleep or peaceful time for reflection. We would recommend lamps with frosted or opal glass diffusers, creating a soft glowing effect. In-direct light can be an effective design feature to create a good amount of light but shield the eyes from the unwanted brightness.


Flos IC Low table

How much light is required for your contemporary space?


Choosing the amount of light you need: What do you realistically require the light for? Do you need a bit of extra light for basic tasks such as reading or do you purely use your space for rest? If you need a little versatility then a lamp with a dimmer function will suit perfectly.


Marset Dipping lamp


Marset Dipping Lamp: £192.98


Size and design must be taken into consideration to get the most out of your light. 


The third and final contributing factor to choosing a Bedroom light is size. Will this fit by your bedside? Is it a design feature or a subtle implement? Space can sometimes be an issue within the bedroom, to which many people turn to the wall light for a savvy solution.

Wastberg


The new refined Winkel


The new w127 Winkel is a developed version of Wastberg’s award winning and best selling task light originally introduced in 2012.


Wastberg


Wastberg have worked hard to refine some key areas of the lamp such as the mechanics, and operation and of course the light source.


 The w127 is the result of a collaboration between Wästberg, the Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel and the Gemany-based chemical company BASF. They spent more than three years developing what they consider the most refined task light ever seen. 


The w127 winkel challenges the perception of plastic, going further than the norm, not only in terms of function and looks, but also in terms of the feel and tactility of the material. No second skin, no paint coat; the true, bold material in its pure form.


It is based on over 60% biologically sourced and recyclable material from the castor plant. This represents a step ahead by setting the course for producing independently of mineral oil based plastics.

Coelux


Established in 2009 CoeLux have created a unique lighting system which reproduces the true effect of natural sunlight entering through an opening in the integrated ceiling, with a realistic sun perceived at infinite distance surrounded by a clear deep blue sky.


Coelux


David Village Lighting is very excited to now be working with Coelux and bring you the experience of the sky. We are always looking to work with the latest technology and we love the CoeLux design so much we are installing an integrated panel into our new Broomhill, Sheffield showroom.


Coelux


The beautiful skylight look is achieved thanks to the comprehensive work carried on by an interdisciplinary team of researchers in the field of optical physics, numerical modelling, chemistry, material science, architecture and design.


CoeLux combines three key elements: the latest LED technology which reproduces the sunlight’s spectrum; a sophisticated optical system that creates the sensation of the distance between the sky and the sun; and nanostructured materials, only a few millimeters thick, which recreate the entire Rayleigh scattering process which occurs in the atmosphere.


“CoeLux lighting systems reproduce a virtual experience of the sun and sky; especially in a below-ground environment, the effect is so powerful that it may radically change our perception of reality. It allows us to rediscover natural light in the real world in a totally new and surprising way”.


Prof. Paolo Di Trapani, company founder and CEO

Grok


Grok


Grok

David Village Lighting has been working with Grok for many years on projects but we now introduce Grok to buy online as we think the range is also great for residential interiors.


Grok embodies a way of understanding and interacting with one another that is based on intuition and empathy.


Grok

New Equatore collection from


Fontana Arte


At David Village Lighting we pride ourselves on supplying the best in modern lighting and we love it when a new release sees a classic design modernised.


The new Equatore collection by Fontana Arte is a contemporary reinterpretation of the classic lamp with a glass shade.


While the traditional Gabriele e Oscar Buratti design uses the shade to contain the light source the shade is suggestively empty.


Fontana Arte


The light is produced by the LEDs and thanks to internal screens arranged in layers, is distributed regularly across the surface of the discs, magically illuminating them.


The lower disk directs the light output downwards and the upper one illuminates the glass cap for a soft, diffused light.


The Equatore family includes a table, floor and suspension and is available in two finishes; a cooler version in grey with a dark chrome frame, and a warmer version with a transparent pink cap and a copper-coloured frame.

Muuto


The Iconic Muuto Under The Bell


David Village Lighting loves Iconic designs and the Muuto Under The Bell is one of our favourites.


We love the multi-functional pendant lamp as the design not only provides an ambient light but also enhances the acoustics of the room.


Muuto


A large sheet of recycled plastic felt is heated in a mould and pressed into shape. Available in black and grey, the lamp blends effortlessly into open spaces. The Bell is an example of modern design with hints to Scandinavian values.


Muuto


“Under The Bell is not just a lampshade. When hung over a table or in an open environment it creates its own space within the bigger space. That way, the lamp embraces and shelters the table and people beneath it - both physically and in a more abstract sense. The recycled plastic felt even absorbs sound and helps improve the acoustics of your room.”

Kartell


The iconic Kartell Master chair


After many years of working with Kartell the iconic Master chair is still our best seller from their collection.


The Masters chair is a powerful tribute to three symbolic chairs, interpreted by the creative genius of Philippe Starck.


Kartell


The unmistakable silhouettes of the "Series 7" by Arne Jacobsen, the "Tulip Armchair" by Eero Saarinen and the "Eiffel Chair" by Charles Eames are interwoven into a hybrid giving life to a fusion of original and engaging styles.


The Masters is light, practical and stackable and can be used outdoors. 


Kartell


The Masters chair was honoured with the prestigious "2010 Good Design Award" presented by the Chicago Athenaeum - Museum of Architecture and Design and the 2013 Red Dot Design Award.
