About the Collection Foscarini Birdie

The designer couple Ludovica and Roberto Palomba designed the Birdie lamp for the Foscarini brand in 2011. The Birdie table lamp is a highly recognizable designer object, despite the relatively simple design.

The Birdie collection inspired by nature captures our imagination: the slim metallic stem imitates the trunk of a tree, from which protrudes a small "branch" - a kind of a landing place for birdies. This original detail gives Birdie its distinctive, playful character. A classic, modernly interpreted lampshade made of polycarbonate rests on the lacquered metal structure and distributes the light diffusely and glare-free. This makes the modern Birdie table lamp ideal for accent lighting or for reading light on the desk or bedside table.

Birdie offers a beautiful variety of colors: birdie is a subtle accent in white or grey, in copper or turquoise blue it is more visible. In addition to the original Birdie Tavolo, the tasteful lamp is also available as a pendant light, floor and wall lamp. As a further development with integrated LEDs, Birdie LED is state-of-the-art in terms of lighting technology.

The Birdie multiple pendant lights are impressive eye-catchers. They have six or nine small Birdie lampshades on slim aluminum poles that converge in the middle and are combined into a fixed frame. The multi-flame Birdie Soffitto ceiling lights also give the impression of a thicker "trunk" from which the individual rods grow like branches. The characteristic element of the Birdie lights - the "branch" - is always present in the design. The shapes are complex but clear, which gives Birdie an unusual and playful look. But at the same time Birdie spreads a feeling of clarity, determination and serenity.

In 2020 Foscarini comes up with two new interpretations of Birdie. Birdie Zero and Birdie Easy feature a minimalist beauty. Birdie Easy's base is now available in new appealing colours, while Birdie Zero is reduced to a diffuser. Both table lamps were especially designed for hotels, public spaces and the gastronomy sector, but also provide a stylish touch in private homes.

A combination of different birdie variants creates an harmonious, modern and tasteful lighting.
