Foscarini plays with scale releasing gigantic versions of their Twiggy, Big Bang and Spokes lights at Milan Design Week.
For several years, Foscarini has been reinterpreting its products of greatest character in large and extra-large versions to furnish large spaces.
By maximising the size of designs, Foscarini scales up their lighting's characteristics and personality.
Twice as Twiggy light
Designed by Marc Sadler and based on the flexibility of a fishing rod, Twiggy has become an icon of contemporary design.
In 2016, Twiggy has released in an 'oversized' version called Twice as Twiggy: an impressively large lamp with the same look and flexibility of the original design.
Besides the floor version, Twice as Twiggy is also available as a suspension lamp.
Big Bang L and XL pendant light
Big Bang by Enrico Franzolini and Vicente Garcia Jimenez is an explosion of intersecting planes that create a play of light and shadows. It is one of the most recognisable designs in the Foscarini collection,
With the addition of Big Bang L and XL to the product range, the theatrical impact of this lamp is amplified to better suit tall ceilings.
The new oversized designs generates luminous, architectural effects on a grand scale.
The light intensity has also been worked on to complement the larger sizes, using an LED source that spreads Big Bang's soft brightness out into even the darkest spaces.
Spokes XL pendant light
Inspired by the spokes of a bicycle wheel, the Spokes lamp has a light and solid form at the same time.
An LED light source allows light to filter through metal rods, creating a playful multiplication of shadows.
In the extra-large version of Spokes, the impact of this multiplication effect is further enhanced, showcasing the versatility of Spokes to complement public spaces and large architectural venues.
