The slim stem recalls the trunk of a tree, its shade is a reinterpretation of the classic reading lamp, while the branch, as if ready for a “birdie” to alight, beckons your touch, turning it on or off. These three elements spontaneously coalesce to give life to a friendly lamp, that combines a smooth and familiar structure with a boldly character. Made with sturdy yet lightweight materials, Birdie has a different personality, depending on the colour: in white, it can be discreet and almost invisible, but in amaranth, orange or grey it becomes more of a prima donna capable playing the starring role of a room. Always monochromatic, from lampshade to the base for a decisive character without compromises. There are two dimensions available for the table lamp, designed to blend in easily with the surroundings. Whether beside an armchair or a sofa in the living room, on the desk in a study, on a bedside table, or in any other room of the house, Birdie fits naturally in and accompanies everyday life with a pleasantly stylish presence.

Foscarini A designing and technological tour de force, Foscarini explores an entire world of materials and solutions. Their research atelier experiments, free of any mental barriers or technical restraints through flexible, efficient and high quality production, while the sales and logistics organisation distributes with equal care all over the world the smallest table lamp to the largest lighting set. Foscarini focuses on developing new products but chooses only to put into production those that express new ideas. While inspiration is always valued, Foscarini’s development phase sometimes takes years of progressive research to analyze materials, shapes, processes and operating modes that sometimes lead to results drastically different from the initial concept. This is why Foscarini lamps are so innovative yet built to weather the whim of trends and become true classics.
