The collaboration between Foscarini and Marc Sadler began with Mite; a floor lamp so innovative that it was awarded the Compasso d’Oro (Golden Compass) in 2001. The company and the designer even developed a special patent for Mite: a mix of fiberglass and carbon thread or Kevlar® that acts as both decoration and a supporting structure at the same time. Technology previously used to produce fishing rods, oars and golf clubs, was introduced to the lighting world for the first time. The circular shape at the bottom of the lamp extends upwards to where the light source is housed. Mite guarantees excellent lighting through an illusion of inner parabolas, projecting an intense and warm band of light towards the ceiling. The inner lighting enhances the decoration and the lamp’s slender shape. Mite furnishes any room with an uncluttered presence and an elegant personality.
