Matali Crasset Foglie Lampfor palluccoitaliaThe 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.
The diffusers are made of “leaves” in injection moulded opaline polycarbonate in light ivory RAL 1015, traffic white RAL 9016 and oxide red RAL 9003.
The supporting metal structure has an epoxy powder coated finish in the same colours as the “leaves”.
The pendant versions are available in three different diameters: 520 mm, 680 mm and 800 mm.
The diffusers on the floor lamps can be: 520 mm diameter and 1800 height or 680 mm diameter and 1820 mm height.
Each lamp is fitted with a Globo 30 Watt compact fluorescent light bulb, warm light 2700° K and E27 base (220V). E26 base for the 110V version.
