‘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…)

She is the mind behind one of the most charming table lamps of the recent years – the award-winning, joyfully-coloured Binic created in collaboration with the Italian brand Foscarini and having received the ‘Grands Prix de la Création’ of the city of Paris in 2010, the multitalented young designer Ionna Vautrin opened her namesake studio in Paris this time last year.

The lamp is available in three various sizes, each of them in a different earthy hue: orange, grey or olive green, and its modern form has been ‘obtained through a single blowing process.’ (more…)
