The elastic and clear graphic of the Foscarini Twiggy is an unmistakable branding, an exemplarily interplay between the creativity of the designer Marc Sadler and the research of Foscarini regarding material and technology.
The Foscarini Twiggy is a simple and genius idea of the arts expert Sadler who wanted to perfection materials as an aim, because the lamp is floating on a demountable stand, which consists of composite material as if it was a fishing rod and which is adjustable with weights. This is how Twiggy already became an icon of the Foscariny company philosophy.
The shade of the Twiggy guarantees a direct illumination of the space below as well as pleasant room light because of the transparency of the top disc. Foscarini also wanted to keep the strong emotional effect of the original model with the LED edition of the Twiggy. And this is how Twiggy LED has the same advantages as the original after long time of illumination research, including additional qualities regarding sustainability, efficiency and durability of the light source. Another advantage of the LED edition is that it is dimmable.
4 counterweights that are inserted in the according pans over the diffusor are part of the equipment of the Foscarini Twiggy LED. The LED chips were developed by Foscarini in order to reach a higher colour degree (CRI) and to keep the same light nuances as a halogen source (Kelvin). Both LED chips of the Twiggy are installed on an aluminium board, which works as cooling body. There are also additional shafts available to enlarge the gooseneck, the transparent cable includes the on / off switch of the Twiggy LED as well as the dimmer for a step-less adjustment of the light’s strength.
