'Duii' lamp by Diesel with Foscarini

Continuing their ongoing collaboration initiated back in 2009, the famous clothing brand Diesel and the Italian lighting specialists Foscarini have realised a new collection of lamps. Comprising five new pendant, table and floor lamp designs, the series of novelties includes this small, jolly model ‘Duii mini’. Inspired by both: its namesake Disney character and a form of ‘the headlight of a classic car’, ‘Duii mini’ is available in two colours; bright yellow or dark grey and the design was presented earlier last month at the Temporary Museum For New Design in Superstudio Piu.

‘Fork’ and ‘Tri-p’ by Diesel / Foscarini

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.

Moroso, with Diesel, has created a collection of products with a relaxed and comfortable mood, taking its inspiration from an informal lifestyle concept and targeting consumers who like simple shapes yet at the same time seek a ‘modern’ style made up of high quality combined with a distinctive design of pure lines.

“We worked with the Diesel creative team, headed by Diesel Creative Director Wilbert Das, to develop an interesting and alternative collection idea which was to represent two different yet coexisting aspects of certain contemporary trends: one which is darker in tone, inspired by the underground world and with a more aggressive and enigmatic aesthetic, and the other lighter, inspired by nature and a visual radiance, with soft and welcoming shapes”, explained Patrizia Moroso who always follows all the phases of every design project personally.

All this has produced the Camp and Rock collections: the first consisting of a sofa – Nebula Nine Sofa – which is soft like a large cloud, has generous shapes and where you can sit or lie on large, soft cushions with stonewashed linen covers which define the sofa, making it the ideal space for relaxing and socialising. The frame is in wood throughout, very strong and compact.

At this year´s Salone del Mobile the Milan-based fashion label Diesel presented its first home collection, which was developed in cooperation with various Italian furniture and lighting manufacturers, such as Moroso and Foscarini. The latter launched a series of interior lights which seem to be inspired by hand-held working lamps.
