Cage lamps by diesel creative team
Every design has a muse that inspired it, a small detail that was at the base of the concept. It’s usually the element that gives the piece its name. In some cases, that small detail is very obvious. In other cases, it’s more of an abstract symbol. For these lamps, the name doesn’t exactly give us any relevant clues, considering their designs.
The Cage lamps were designed by Diesel for Foscarini. Diesel is a company specialized in cloths designs and collections so it’s a little surprising to see this unexpected change in interest. However, it’s easy to see the elegant background when you take a look at these lamps. They have a sense of style so delicate and subtle that puts fashion on a different plan. Their designs are very soft and chic but they are also very simple. The key to most modern designs is to follow a minimalist pattern and to add small details that complement the design in an unexpected and remarkable way.
In the case of the Cage lamps, the design is a very nice balance. On one hand we have the actual lamp which is as simple as it could be. The delicate curved lines and the lack of unnecessary elements or decorations make these pieces stand out. The detail that gives them character is the white webbed material that hides the light bulb and that also has inspired the name of the collection. The colors differ with each model and they complement the shapes beautifully.
