Table lamp with lampshade made of satined and blown glass
The Rituals lamp series, which was designed by the architects and designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba for Foscarini, impresses above all with its plasticity. The lights move playfully on the fine line between east and west. The challenge was to convert the lightness of the washi paper of the oriental lanterns into a group of glass lamps. A creation that was only possible thanks to the experience of Foscarini and the skills of the master glassblowers of Murano.
The entire Rituals lamp series includes pendant lamps and table lamps. The Rituals table lamps emit diffuse light. The collection offers three diffuser shapes made of hand-blown glass using a blowing technique in which the glass is blown into place and not turned in the mold (called "a fermo"). The stripe effect is achieved using a mold with negative decorations that are repeated on the surface of the glass. The glass is then hand-filed and subjected to an acid immersion process to create a plaster-like effect.
The lights are available in two versions with G9 (with dimmer included) or E27 socket.
Rituals creates very intimate, atmospheric lighting. Each of these lights fulfills a different function and is designed for a different location. The lowest version serves as a table lamp, the highest as a floor lamp, and the smallest as a bedside lamp. The sanding effect on the surface of the Foscarini Rituals table lamps creates high-contrast light-dark effects on the plaster-like body. Since the lamp rests on three slim metal legs, it creates a very expressive element on which the lamp seems to float.
