Small pendant luminaire in lacquered glass
Chouchin is the name of the oriental lanterns made of paper and bamboo, inspired by which a contemporary family of lamps was created, in which the prestige of blown glass, the charm of colours, the magic of light and the possibilities of creating compositions of different shapes merge to create a familiar and at the same time seemingly unknown emotion. The Chouchin luminaire series was designed in 2013 by Ioanna Vautrin for Foscarini.
The version "Mini" complements the project Chouchin, adding additional possibilities of composition and positioning. The lampshade is available in two shapes and complementary colours: Orange and green. As in the larger version, the lower edge remains white to create an unmistakable graphic when the lamp is switched off and a luminous frame when the lamp is switched on.
Chouchin Mini can be used alone, as a small and poetic lantern hanging in the air, or in a row or group, or in conjunction with the larger model, to illuminate a table, bar or peninsula with a downward beam of light. The optionally available multiple canopy is particularly suitable for creating group compositions.
The small dimensions of the Chouchin Mini by Fosacarini underline its personality as a streak of light with restrained and thus even more precious elegance. The luminaires can be equipped with halogen lamps or LED light sources. Thanks to their energy efficiency and long service life, the latter are particularly suitable for commercial buildings.
