Foglie lamp by Matali Crasset for Pallucco Italy

June 19th, 2011 by retail design blog

The Foglie design is inspired by nature. The designer says: “I did not set out to copy nature but to bear witness to its magnificence. What is so amazing about nature is the intrinsic force contained in every plant which blossoms in the spring. A vertical force which starts at one point and develops in space as it searches for light. Foglie consists of a single branch which splits into two, and then into two again, bending and then straightening out. I think this tension is appropriate for adorning light: a powerful force that starts in one point and then branches out”.

In the floor lamp version, the stem of the light represents the tree trunk and the branches accompany the ray of light upwards; in the pendant model, the branches stretching downwards “tame” the light, breaking it up into as many rays as there are branches.
