Pendant lamp made of polycarbonate with organic shapes
Fascinating play of light: The Foscarini Plass pendant lamp interprets traditional glass art based on contemporary materials and modern processing processes. Plass, whose name is a symbiosis of the English words "plastic" and "glass", is made from transparent polycarbonate using the rotation process.
The Plass lamp was designed by the Venice-born designer Luca Nichetto and pays homage to the thousands of years of glass tradition in his home country. Not only the coloring (aquamarine and gray) was inspired by Murano glass and Venetian handicrafts, but also the modern manufacturing process that is atypical for the production of luminaires produces anything but an impersonal product. On the contrary: As with the manual processing of glass, the surface of the Plass lamp is characterized by slight unevenness.
Atmospheric lighting effects
These small bumps, which are individual for each lamp, together with the characteristic notches of the Plass lamp, create interesting and surprising lighting effects. The light is refracted twice - from large to small and from the outside in.
Due to the dimensions, the large Plass lamp is particularly suitable for defining large and high rooms. The large diffuser made of transparent polycarbonate is pressed using the rotation process. With this technology, hollow bodies can be produced on a large scale without having to weld. The inner frame is made of brushed aluminum, the suspension cable made of stainless steel and the electrical cable is transparent. The ceiling rose is supplied with a bracket made of galvanized metal and a cover made of shiny chrome-plated metal.
The Plass lamp by Foscarini is available in two sizes and colors (azure blue and gray).
