Featured – Foscarini Birdie

The Birdie collection by Foscarini is a family of lamps which is inspired by the poetic image of a bird on a branch.

Although they are all recognisably part of the birdie collection, each version of the birdie lamp is a design in its own right. The collection includes suspension, wall, floor and table options and is available in White, Grey, Amaranth or Orange.



The Birdie wall model expands the possibility of creating combination of the various versions. It’s subtle design and natural inspiration allows the wall version to blend in easily with the most unlikely of settings creating a different looks for each space.



The Birdie suspension is suspended in the air with its straightforward and harmonious diffuser. Multiple suspension versions are also available. With either 3,6 or 9 shades the suspension has the same number of white finish arms which act almost like branches of a tree to support the diffusers. Thanks to the additional cable set, the Birdie pendant can be made to suit your room whatever the ceiling height and is available in a ceiling version should no drop be required.



The Birdie table has a slim stem which represent the trunk of a tree. The shade is a reinterpretation of the classic reading lamp while the branch beckons your touch, turning it on or off. These elements work together to give life to a friendly lamp which combines a smooth and familiar structure with a bold character. The Birdie come in two sizes ensuring whether placed in the living room, on a desk or on a bedside table the lamp fits in naturally in the space and add a stylish touch to everyday life.



The Birdie floor has a similar design to the table with a long slim stem and a classic shade with a branch like detail. The Birdie floor stands at 150cm and is perfect to be used to light a area for example where you sew or read.

Foscarini Birdie in Metallic Finishes

11 January 2015 Permalink

Foscarini Birdie metal table lamp

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.


Foscarini Birdie sketch

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.
