Designed by Marc Sadler for Foscarini
The advantage of LED is the long operating lifespan and low energy consumption
The elastic and coloured graphic appeal of Twiggy is an unmistakable sign in space, an exemplary marriage between the designer’s eclectic creativity and Foscarini’s research in the field of materials and technologies. Suspended on a detachable rod made of composite material, flexible like a fishing rod, height adjustable using a system of counterweights, Twiggy is a simple and genius idea, which has become an Foscarini icon and awarded outstanding success among both the public and the critics. The diffuser guarantees direct lighting in the area underneath the lamp and - thanks to the transparency of the upper protection disk - diffuses a cosy ambient light. This lighting emotion is also vouched by Led version – affording high energy efficiency levels and durability - completely re-engineered in terms of lighting technology especially to ensure the same intensity, diffusion and temperature as the light produced by the original version.
Description - Floor lamp with direct and indirect light. Diffuser and rod made of fibreglass–based composite material and liquid coated. Translucent polycarbonate upper diffuser disc, PMMA lower diffuser disc with polyprismatic internal surface. Epoxy powder coated metal round base. Supplied with 4 counter–weights to be inserted in the purpose–provided seat above the diffuser to adjust its height. In this LED version the circuit boards were purpose designed by Foscarini, to achieve a superior level of colour rendering (CRI) and retaining the same colour temperature as a halogen light source (Kelvin). The two LED circuit boards are installed on an aluminium disc that acts as a dissipator, and the upper board is protected by a small PMMA disc.
Additional arc– extending rods available sold seperately.
The transparent cable is fitted with a dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of luminous intensity gradually or as the ON/OFF switch.
