Planet is the result of Foscarini’s ongoing exploration of the universe of materials and its desire to overcome the challenge of creating a fabric lamp without a frame inside. The idea, which sprang from a study of “smart clothing” for astronauts, commissioned by NASA and conducted by Dainese in conjunction with the MIT, was to use a fabric borrowed from the sailing world. Due to its texture and sewing process, this fabric would provide the frame of the lamp. Planet is actually the joining of three pieces of this high-tech fabric, handsewn, onto which an external embroidery is applied, acting both as decoration as well as a support. Depending on the color of the embroidery, the personality of the lamp changes. In the white version, the embroidery creates a precious yet discreet ton-sur-ton effect, a slight weft when the lamp is turned off, that turns into a back-lit decoration when the lamp is turned on. Innovative and familiar, pleasantly organic rather than cold and geometric, Planet distinguishes its setting with irresistible appeal, unprecedented presence and warm, cozy and welcoming luminosity. Available in two different sizes, it is ideal for use in several rooms throughout the home or in contract settings.
