Twiggy: a new colour and a new wood for a lighting icon — Design: Marc Sadler


Make way for colour and warmth: for Euroluce 2023 the iconic TWIGGY lamp dresses up in an intense shade of burgundy, and is also available in the wood version in which the base and stem in composite material are combined with a diffuser in the new Rosewood material.

Among Foscarini’s news for 2023, the iconic TWIGGY lamp now comes in a new burgundy color: a contemporary, intense and sophisticated hue with a forceful character, expanding the family of products designed by Marc Sadler, available in classic or Elle and reading floor versions.

The new chromatic variant brings out the typical lightness of the lamp in the Wood version, where the flexible carbon fibre stem is combined with a diffuser in incredibly thin wood. The new Rosewood finish – which joins the wood Oak version – stands out for its darker, very warm tone, enhanced by the natural grain of the material.

A classic that continues to bring surprises: TWIGGY, with its elegant, supple image, has been a style protagonist for almost twenty years.

Thanks to the slim arched line that sustains a large diffuser in the air as if by magic, Twiggy and Twiggy Wood are perfect for all kinds of settings and lighting requirements. The lamps are an ideal choice next to a sofa, in living areas, dining rooms and hospitality facilities, including pubic venues. In the Elle version, which extends the diffuser even further from the base, Twiggy is also ready to shed light on large tables, or in all the situations in which it is impossible to insert a pendant. The natural, warm and appealing presence of wood gives the lamp a different personality, making it perfect for use in spaces where the objective is a refined, soft and relaxing atmosphere.

In its suspension version, Twiggy can be placed over a table for effective downlighting, while spreading a welcoming ambient glow upwards.
