Orbital Floor Lamp

Designed by:  Ferruccio Laviani
Manufactured by:  Foscarini

Orbital is Ferruccio Laviani’s debut lamp, designed in 1992. This lighting object decorates with the boldness of a sculpture; a true icon of lighting design. The lamp’s structure is essentially made up of three parts: a moveable tripod, made from laser-cut metal sheet, that supports a lacquered metal rod. Five arms extend from the rod and on these arms are diffusers made from serigraphed, industrial glass. Each slab has its own unique shape for a bold overall graphic effect which is particularly evident in the white version. The colored diffusers, on the other hand, evoke a surrealist painting when the lamp is switched off. When the lamp is switched on these mosaic glass strips create an illusion. The diffusers are satin-finished on the outside to give texture to the color and enhance the shapes but glossy on the inside to reflect the light. Manufactured by Foscarini.

Lamp requires five incandescent 40W E12 candelabra bulbs. Light bulbs are not included.

Designed in 1992.

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.

Ferruccio Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani (born 1960 in Italy) graduated from the Istituto Professionale Internazionale per l'Artigianato Liutario e del Legno di Cremona in 1978 and went on to earn a degree from the Faculty of Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano in 1986. He additionally attended the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan from 1982 to 1984. An architect and designer, Laviani first began working for Michele De Lucchi in 1983, later becoming a partner before he opened his own studio in Milan in 1991. He has since worked with a number of well-known brands including De Padova, Emmemobili, Flos, Foscarini, Kartell, Moroso, and Society (Limonta).
