Fold wall lamp by Foscarini. From the art of origami and the paper aeroplanes of our childhood, folding a sheet of paper means transforming a two-dimensional entity into something three-dimensional, with a simple gesture. A daily operation, but one that is virtually alchemy upon which few stop to reflect. One of these is the designer of Fold, who worked on this concept to create a lamp that recalls a slightly arched piece of paper. The screen barely rises from the wall, concealing the light source and projecting a direct light upwards and reflected off the wall.
Fold is a ductile and dynamic shape, suitable for many situations and settings. It is both a serviceable and decorative lamp in which light, as in all Foscarini creations, is an integral part of the design. When the lamp is lit, te soft fold of the polycarbonate diffuser stands out clearly in the backlight, becoming a characterising element.
Even when off Fold has an original aesthetic value, the fruit of simplicity that is by no means banal and that is the result of careful research and development, aimed to simplifying and refinning its finished form. Pure and discrete in white, it is ready to be placed in a wide range of domestic and contract spaces, alone or in compositions that multiply its graphic effect.
