Tuareg LED Floor Lamp
Foscarini’s new foor lamp Tuareg, designed by Italian architect Ferruccio Laviani, This totemic lamp consists of simple and essential tubular elements, geometrical structures made by man but inspired by nature, assembled in what looks like orderly chaos. The three main elements, house an LED strip at their tip.
Tuareg’s structure is inspired by man-made architecture which is nevertheless bound to the world of nature with materials such as branches and cane according to an instinctive, dynamic creative logic. It is chaos turned order, non-traditional geometry echoing a work of land art.
By means of a complex industrialisation process, this initial idea took the form of a three dimensional composition of aluminium tubes creating a spectacularly powerfully graphic effect. LED light sources have been incorporated into the extremities of three of these elements which can be switched on and off separately and adjusted 350 degrees in order to vary the light effect and the lamp’s possible uses.
The structure has been made even more minimalist by integrated touch switches and the system used to hide the power cables within tubular elements. A formal totem-like presence highlighted by the expressive power of the lamp’s two colour variants: a bright orange which echoes the industrial hues of anti-rust paints and black chrome which evokes precious metals. Like a sculptural decoration, Tuareg is the ideal centrepiece for an important reception space in both public and private spaces and in multiple compositions creating veritable lighting installations too.
Floor lamp with direct adjustable light made of extruded aluminium coated with liquid paint. Main frame defined by three tubular elements, with an interior ballast at the base and fitted with a non-slip thermoplastic protective foot. On the three main branches, LED boards with independent switches screened with an opaline polycarbonate diffuser.
The touch dimmer switch is situated at the lower end of the screen, to turn the lamp on and off and adjust the light intensity. A Teflon seal ensures an easy and durable 350° movement of the three light sources. Black electrical cable. Electronic transformer fitted on the plug. The lamp can be controlled from a wall outlet.
