Big Bang Suspension Light

Designed by:  Enrico Franzolini
Manufactured by:  Foscarini

Irregular and apparently random intersections of spatial planes create a volume around the light source and produce the dynamic character of the exuberant Big Bang suspension lamp. By evoking the dynamism of an explosion, the methacrylic planes seem to escape the central luminous core and explode in all directions. A highly plastic luminous body, characterised by the intrigues of light and shade, of great visual impact and yet aerial, ideal for singlehandedly personalising interiors of various styles. Big Bang provides an intense, decisive and direct light. The particular arrangement of the surfaces guarantees maximum reflection and at the same time avoids dazzling, whilst offering a different lighting effect from all angles.  UL listed.  Manufactured by Foscarini.

The Big Bang halogen lamp requires one 200W RSC (4 11/16") type T3 halogen bulb. Light bulbs are not included.

Designed in 2005.

Cord length 400" available for an upcharge. Please contact Switch Modern for details (404-605-0196 or info@switchmodern.com).

Foscarini

Foscarini was founded in 1981 on the Italian island of Murano near Venice. Given its location, its early production pieces were logically focused primarily on blown glass. By the late 1980s, Carlo Urbinati and Alessandro Vecchiat (both had previously worked as designers for Foscarini) took over management of the company and expanded its mission to include research and experimentation in a range of materials other than glass – molded polyethelyene, aluminum, polycarbonate, even Kevlar thread and silicon-coated metal. This commitment to innovation through materials has led to successful collaborations with a number of renowned architects and designers over the past few decades including Ferruccio Laviani, Tom Dixon, Aldo Cibic, Piero Lissoni, Marc Sadler, James Irvine, Karim Rashid, Patricia Urquiola, Luca Nichetto, and Valerio Bottin. Foscarini has received numerous, prestigious awards and many of its designs are now in the permanent collections of several museums around the world.
