Foscarini Aplomb Floor Lamp
design by design by Lucidi and Pevere, 2014
Floor lamp with indirect light. Cement diffuser, made with a special amalgam colored with pigments, produced by pouring the fluid mixture into a mold. Extruded aluminum rod and die cast zinc alloy base coated with epoxy powder paint. The transparent cable is fitted with a dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of luminous intensity gradually or as the on/off switch.
The Aplomb project explores the technological and expressive possibilities of concrete, a rough yet at the same time appealing material, achieving a leap of scale and genre: from large contemporary architectural buildings to a small designer lamp. In its shape and use, Aplomb recalls a burning torch, to be grabbed and moved easily to where it is needed. Its light beam is an intense up-light, but it creates no glare because it is completely screened from view by the shape that encloses the light source.
