Designed by Ferruccio Laviani, 1992
Made in Italy by Foscarini
Orbital is a lighting object that decorates with the boldness of a sculpture; a true icon of lighting design. The lamp's structure is essentially made up of three parts: a moveable tripod, made from laser-cut metal sheet, that supports a lacquered metal rod. Five arms extend from the rod and on these arms are diffusers made from serigraphed, industrial glass. Each slab has its own unique shape for a bold overall graphic effect which is particularly evident in the white version. The colored diffusers, on the other hand, evoke a surrealist painting when the lamp is switched off. When the lamp is switched on these mosaic glass strips create an illusion. The diffusers are satin-finished on the outside to give texture to the color and enhance the shapes but glossy on the inside to reflect the light.
