Table lamp looking like paper
The Rituals lamp series, which has been made by the architects and designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba for Foscarini bribes with its plasticity. The lamps move playfully in the slim path between occident and orient. The challenge was to realize the weightlessness of Washi paper of oriental lanterns in a group of glass lamps. A creation with only succeeded because of the experience of Foscarini and the skills of the glassblowers of Murano.
Design & production
The whole Rituals lamps series includes pendant lamps and table lamps. The Rituals table lamps spend diffuse light. The collection offers three diffusor shapes out of mouth blown glass with a blowing technique, in which glass is blown until it has its final form, without turning it inside of a mould (called “a fermo”). The stripes effect is reached by negative-decorations, which repeat on the glass surface. Afterwards the glass is filed by hand and submerged in acids in order to reach a plaster effect.
