At this year’s Milan fair the Italian manufacturer Foscarini presented their first collection, which was developed together with the clothing producer Diesel.

‘Fork’ is an ironic lamp inspired by the casual world of the campsite and campers. The canvas shade has typical tent stitching, with deliberately visible fabric layers. The metal structure of the base is joined to the diffuser by two metal rings reminiscent of those used to fix tents and the warm, suffused light is typical of tents lit from the inside.

The base is in dark metal, while the diffuser is available in two colours: rope, for a very natural effect, and black. Fork is available in floor and table versions. The latter has been designed to be extremely flexible and to act as a desk or table light. The diffuser can be orientated as you wish thanks to the two rings of the lampshade, which have a special high tech device that allows complete rotation around the axis of the bulb.

‘Tri-p’ is a floor lamp “in movement”: thanks to its foldaway metal support it can be quickly closed and transported everywhere. ”. The casual shade is in elastic fabric that can be easily fitted and removed, adapting to the degree of bend in the base and to the closure movement.

The light is spread with a different intensity, depending on how tight or loose the fabric is. With Tri-p the fashion world draws closer to the design universe: depending on the season, personal taste or mood, the fabric diffuser can be changed as if it were a T-Shirt.
