Aplomb concrete lamp

Together with Bahia this product starts off the collaboration with Foscarini. The purpose was to realize a small suspension lamp which could express a self material feature in opposition to impersonal and cold minimalism.
Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere chose the cement because it is poor, very expressive and changeable for its own nature. It took two years approximately to get the right thickness ready in some areas it becomes a real skin – and to find the craftsmen able to do this jump from architecture to design.
Despite it’s a semi-manufactured material and not finished, Aplomb easily succeed in introducing itself both in contract and home sectors according to a linear or grouped logic of multiplication. Starting mixture may be grey, white or brown.
Small hanging lamp in concrete offered in three, coloured finishes which celebrate its personality, bringing together different styles, from the traditional grey of cement in its raw state, which adds depth to the volumes, to a stylish white hue, and a warm intense brown. Perfect for occasional tables, peninsulas and counters, either on its own or in a group.
LED technology now meets the textured and contemporary charm of concrete, in a new version of the Aplomb suspension lamp. The long life assured by the light source makes for a reduction in maintenance work, whereas its particular efficiency adds further value in terms of energy savings and eco-sustainability.
