The elastic appeal of Twiggy is a graceful arc in space, an exemplary marriage between the designer’s imagination and Foscarini’s instinct for materials and technologies. Suspended on a detachable stem made of composite materials, flexible like a fishing rod, Twiggy’s adjustable height is made possible via a sophisticated system of counter weights. Simple and graphic, Twiggy has become a Foscarini icon, feted with design distinctions from critics while garnering adoration from the public.
Twiggy’s perfectly composed diffuser guarantees focused lighting directly below the lamp, while simultaneously dispersing a broad swath of nuanced illumination. This ambient quality of light remains untouched in the lamps’s LED version, in which the energy efficiency and long-lasting properties of the LED light source only enhance the original design without comprising the appeal of its ambient illumination.
