‘Doll’ table lamp by Ionna Vautrin for Foscarini

Continuing her collaboration with Italian lighting specialists Foscarini, the acclaimed Parisian-based designer Ionna Vautrin has once again turned her attention to the Far East and the Orient for inspiration. Her new, well-proportioned and organically shaped (as has become Vautrin’s signature) table lamp ‘Doll’ has just been unveiled by the Marcon-based brand and it appears to be a natural continuation of Vautrin’s previous, also Orient-inspired pendant light, ‘Chouchin’. Composed of a round, blown glass head and a circular plastic base, ‘Doll’ emanates a warm, soft glow and the lamp is available in four colour versions: ivory, green, grey and red.

more about the lamp:

 

‘An intimate, personal story told with a simple, direct style. This is Doll, the new lamp created from a combination of the endless sensitivity and creativity of its young designer, Ionna Vautrin, together with Foscarini’s design experience and technological innovation. The two shapes that make up Doll are made of two different materials, which are both part of Foscarini’s history and are a recurring part of the company’s expressive vocabulary: blown glass and plastic.

 

‘The volumes are separated and underlined by a dark ring, which becomes a graphic symbol of connection and acts as a support for the light bulb within. While the blown glass speaks the reassuring language of a warm, brilliant, natural light, the plastic of the cylindrical base offers expressive use of color and further opportunities for customisation.’
