Aplomb lamp by Foscarini

May 25th, 2011 by retail design blog

Visible concrete is part of the expressive language of modern architecture and, with Aplomb, Foscarini introduces a model that uses this material with a spirit and technology that is entirely original. The challenge was to create an incredible leap of scale: from large architectural constructions to a little suspension lamp with a thickness of just a few millimetres at its finest point, using a material that is so inflexible. The challenge has been met with impeccable ‘aplomb’, thanks to the use of special concrete that is particularly fluid in moulding and has a material effect that is both rough and, at the same time, elegant.
Aplomb creates direct, precise lighting on occasional tables, peninsulas and counters, alone or in a multiple composition, with its presence as a small, yet important protagonist, also underlined by the different colours available: the natural grey of concrete, brown or white, created by combining pigments together with its exclusive mixture.
