The famous Italian lighting manufacturer Foscarini revolutionizes design and functionality with almost every item that comes out of the production line. This time they build a new type of lighting device suited for those who want a little bit more design in the mixture.Modularity is a concept that all of us can see more and more often due to its huge impact over modernism.
The lamp called Nuage is basically a 3 dimensional light square that spreads on the surface where is mounted a nice graphic effect. To accomplish this designer Phillippe Nigro played with plastic injected grid moulds in a great variety of angles. These unique effects are the result of carefully studied light filters, shapes and shadows as well as different light compositions.
It’s very difficult not to notice the amount of dedication and passion for light and form necessary to build something as complicate and ingenious as this lamp. The essence is still simplicity and the design strength comes from the way this little thing that mounts on a wall or ceiling manages to stand out. We all like patterns and modernism tried to eliminate some of that “habit” with new ergonomic shapes and untraditional ideas. This lamp is in between; part traditional and functional and part decorative symbol it represents the combination of new and old but in another dimension.I love the theatrical effect and the fascinating visual richness of the lamp; two very important aspects in the times we live.
