‘Innerlight’ lamp by Simon Pengelly for Foscarini

The acclaimed British designer Simon Pengelly has created this minimalist, sculptural wall-mounted lamp for the Italian lighting specialists Foscarini. Composed of three, overlapping, translucent strips, the form of ‘Innerlight’ was inspired by the work of the American minimalist sculptor Richard Serra. Launched earlier this year during Salone del Mobile, the light is available in two colour versions: understated white or textured brown.

More about the design:


‘With an extremely simple exterior, the result of careful study of the various elements which comprise it, the lamp designed by Simon Pengelly is composed of three overlapping bands, slightly concave and at different angles, supported by a translucent polycarbonate shell hiding the technical section.Innerlight is a three-dimensional square which changes meaning and role when the lamp is on.


‘The light source comprising two fluorescent bulbs placed on different levels ensures good lighting in every direction, both towards the wall as well as along the tiles, producing a changing, sophisticated effect.’
