Designed by Jean Marie Massuad for Foscarini
Solar is a luminous hemisphere. Created out of polyethylene, the lamp is set on the ground and covered by a circular plane that screens the light and works concurrently as a resting surface.
This version is designed for outdoor use ( An indoor version is also available - see below ), Solar is in harmony with a broad-ranging concept of living, in which the garden can become a living area. Not just a lamp but a new type of object, a contemporary hearth around which to gather and chat, at home or outside. In the indoor model, the resting surface is slightly concave, with its edges just slightly raised. The outdoor version instead has a straight resting surface that is flush with the outer edge, to allow the rain to just slip away. The surface finishes are also different: glossy white or dark wood for the indoor version, with a characteristic textured effect for the outdoor version.
Decorative on its own or arranged in a composition of multiples, Solar has a retractable base that allows you to incline it in order to change the lighting effect while remaining perfectly stable. A bright, warm and intimate centre of attraction, Solar is ideal for scenic compositions, such as in the garden, to create suggestive light paths.
