Every Spring, NYCxDesign runs for two weeks leading up to the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair), but the Saturday evening prior to the kick off of ICFF is a festive night of open showrooms down in SoHo. Anyone who’s been to Open Showrooms knows that it means one thing; parties, and one of the best parties is hosted by Italian lighting designers Foscarini, which is where I like to start my evening. This year, I was completely smitten by Foscarini’s Orbital Floor Lamp, by architect and designer Ferruccio Laviani. The Orbital lamp pairs mid-century modern shapes with soft illumination to create a playful lamp for bold, contemporary interiors.
The Orbital Floor Lamp, a 1992 design by Laviani, features five glass shapes with large screw details. The glass shapes are individually backlit. Constructed of polished metal and silk screen-printed glass, the Orbital makes a timeless statement. Shown here in a multicolored lacquered finish, it is also available in white.
The Orbital Floor Lamp has a price point of $2,026.00 and is available online through a variety of outlets, or at any Foscarini Store globally.
