- Ludovica & Roberto Palomba, 2015
Tartan is the unmistakeable design characteristic of Scottish woollen kilts with its perpendicular criss cross pattern generating ever changing geometric motifs. With this to inspire them Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, together with Foscarini, created a further variation on the blown glass lamp theme continuing a journey begun in 1998 with the Dom model and then with the Rituals lamp family. The Tartan suspension lamp has a blown glass diffuser made using the technique of mouth blowing into a mould with a design engraved in it, enriching it with lines and folds echoing the weave of Scottish cloth and a graphic play of light and shadow. The acid etching technique used on the surface of the glass also produces a sensation of material softness which brings fabric to mind. Materially rich with an attractive personality, Tartan diffuses a warm, suffused light into the environment filtered with matt glass and also ensures good direct lighting in a downwards direction.
