Filo: Deconstructed Lamps by Andrea Anastasio for Foscarini

Filo: Deconstructed Lamps by Andrea Anastasio for Foscarini

Traditional lamps are generally designed to hide the wiring, bulb, and basic structure behind something ornamental, but designer Andrea Anastasio decided to take a different, deconstructed approach. Filo, designed for Foscarini, chooses to display those parts and have what’s normally hidden become decorative.

The electrical wire is looped and hung on a hook at the top of the lamp’s base. Glass spheres, along with the porcelain cone-like shade, are suspended from the cord giving it the look of a necklace. A variety of glass components, from bright hues to muted tones, are available making it work in just about any scenario it’s placed.

During this year’s Salone del Mobile, the Filo table lamp was named “Best of Euroluce” where it also debuted.
