The Aplomb Suspension Lamp For Multi Canopy was designed by Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere for the Italian label Foscarini and will suit style-conscious home designers or businesses looking for an effective and attractive way to light their offices.
As with many of Lucidi and Pevere's works, the Aplomb Suspension Lamp For Multi Canopy avoids plastic and flimsy materials. Their speciality is ceramics and sturdy materials. In this case, they have used cast concrete to create conical lamps - an interesting and highly effective choice of materials for the task in hand.
This Foscarini lamp takes the form of a solid concrete cone attached to a 200cm long cable. It uses a single 60W halogen bulb, which provides plenty of illumination and will last for months without requiring any maintenance.
Each lamp measures 40cm tall by 17cm in diameter, and they are designed to be arranged in different patterns, depending on the space to be lit. For example, they work beautifully in series when placed along a ceiling-mounted rail, or they could be placed on a cluster to provide concentrated light at the centre of a room. This kind of versatility makes them a design essential.
