Tress lamp by Marc Sadler for Foscarini

June 20th, 2011 by retail design blog

Interwoven, resin-impregnated fibres recall the texture of baskets. The vision interweaves light and material through contrasting bands of full and empty space, differently distributed according to how the lamp will be used. It recalls the warm touch of fabric and creates a highly suggestive visual and tactile sensory effect.

Tress is made of composite materials, similar to those already used by Marc Sadler and Foscarini in the Mite and Twiggy collections, with a completely different application and results. This creates new expressive possibilities for the collection and develops new functions as well. For example, in the floor versions, the cable drowned in the interwoven structure produces a clean, elegant aesthetic effect.

The collection is available in three colours – white, black or red – each revealing different personalities: black strongly underlines the woven structure that shapes the three-dimensional decoration; the white version has a lighter, more discrete presence, while the red version, most dramatically emphasizes the interplay of light and shade in the weave. In the floor version, the spread of the beam of light both through the body and out the top, creates a particularly attractive effect, thanks to two light sources with separate switches. The lower light illuminates the heart of the lamp and underlines the intertwined graphics, creating an enveloping effect, while the upper part bounces light off the ceiling.

The hanging version directs the beam of light down, and if placed in succession, creates a pathway of innovative lighting effects that are ideal for large spaces. The table version, with its delicate weave of light and shade, decorates the surface it is placed on to complete the collection.
