Design Luca Nicheto, 2011. Polycarbonate. Made in Italy by Foscarini. Plass (the name is a synthesis of "plastic" and "glass") interprets the millennia-old artisan tradition of glass making, in the light of a contemporary process and material: rotationally-molded transparent polycarbonate. Thanks to this technology, which is not yet widely used in the lighting sector, the finishes are not cold and impersonal, but feature slight irregularities, highlighted by the light source, as in handmade glass. The incisions, which in pearls reflect the light from the space, in the Plass lamp reflect the luminosity of the inner bulbs, in a dual confounding of perspectives: from small to large, from outside to inside. The colors chosen for the diffuser - aquamarine and grey - are inspired by murano glass and venetian craftsmanship. As well as evoking an atmosphere and an emotion, the color helps define the shape of the lamp, highlighting the thickness of the incisions on its surface. Suspended between memory and modernity, Plass characterizes large spaces, including high ones, alone or in multiple compositions. 29.5" dia. | 45" h | 238" max drop | cord length: 193" | ceiling rose: 9" requires 6x60W G9 type T4 bi-pin halogen & 1x75W E26 type PAR 30 halogen bulbs or.
