‘Funiculi’ floor lamp by Lluís Porqueras for Marset

Originally designed by the acclaimed Catalan designer Lluís Porqueras in 1979, this elegantly slender, glossy floor lamp has just been reissued by the Barcelona-based lighting specialists Marset. As its name suggests, the height of ’Funiculi’ can be adjusted while the hemispheric shade can be rotated 360 degrees around its axis. Inspired by the funicular railways in Barcelona, the metal lamp is available in five colour options: white, black, red, beige and moss grey. Watch the designer himself speak about ‘Funiculi’ in the video below…

More about the lamp:

 

‘Funiculí is a new edition of a lamp designed in 1979. Lluís Porqueras has always sought an absolute simplicity in his designs, doing away with everything superfluous to leave the essence of the useful, simple object. 30 years on, Funiculí remains highly contemporary, both in its purist forms and in its features. The base of Funiculí is covered in rubber on the bottom, avoiding the cold contact between the metal and the floor and adding stability to the lamp.’
