The unique Blob S Wall / Ceiling Lamp was created by Karim Rashid for the Italian design company Foscarini.
Foscarini was set up in 1981, and originally operated from the island of Murano in Venice, which is known for its exquisite glass. The company focuses on using modern technology, and has built a brand that delivers cutting-edge techniques and products. Designer Karim Rashid is known for his ostentatious projects and his love of bold shapes and colours. Over the course of his career he has designed over 3000 products and has won over 30 awards.
The Blob S Wall / Ceiling Lamp may have been given the tongue-in-cheek name of 'the blob', but in reality its design is rather refined. It is contemporary, but also looks like something from nature, with smooth waving lines that create a soft look for a gentle atmosphere. It is made from strong polypropylene plastic, and is part of a collection; with an outdoor version, as well as a floor and table lamp. It measures length 46cm, width 16cm, with a height of 16cm. It weighs 1.1kg and takes one fluorescent compact 24W bulb.
