The Twiggy arched lamp by Foscarini was designed by Marc Sadler in 2008 and quickly achieved the status of a modern classic. As one of the bestsellers in the Foscarini repertoire, Twiggy is now available in numerous versions and includes LED and outdoor versions.
The lamp convinces with a clear structure and a particularly filigree shape. The slim, curved rod lends the lamp an unmatched lightness and youthful dynamism. The Twiggy Terra arched lamp is perfect as a modern statement piece in the living room or in office spaces. If chosen in a coloured version, it also sets a colorful accent.
The light shines upwards and downwards through the shade, emitting both indirect room light and direct light that can be used for reading or as table lighting. Twiggy is suitable for use in cozy living rooms, in the reading corner or next to a dining table as a replacement for a pendant lamp. Twiggy is adjustable in height and can be adapted precisely to the place of use. With the Foscarini Twice as Twiggy, the Italian manufacturer presents a Twiggy with doubled dimensions for particularly large rooms.
The luminaire is made of a composite material based on fiberglass, entirely painted which explains that it seems to be made of a single piece.
In addition to the classic arched lamp, the collection also includes usual floor lamps, table lamps and pendant lamps. They keep the original design's delicate aesthetics and use the characteristic shade, so that the Foscarini Twiggy Lettura floor lamps and the pendant lights also provide a cozy mix of direct and indirect light.
A variation of the usual shade design was made for the exterior lights of the collection: Twiggy Grid has a shade that is not smooth and closed on the side, but has a grid pattern that is reminiscent of wicker and produces interesting additional lighting effects. Of course, this makes the luminaire look even more airy and much more subtle, especially in the outdoor area. In addition to the models for conventional lamps, there are also some Twiggy lights with integrated LEDs and a version for control via Casambi.
