Modern floor and table lampa  Jean Marie Massaud

Featuring a floor and table lamp named Solar  by Jean Marie Massaud for Foscarini are cool table and floor lamps that are suitable in any room  indoor – outdoor. Solar modern and minimal and give off an inviting and calming glow and you can also objects put on the surface like a magazine, book, cup, glass.


Here’s description :

” This is the vision behind Solar, which is not just a lamp but a new type of object, resulting from an emotional approach to space and distinguished by the hemispherical shape inspired by the celestial vault, while the resting surface recalls an eclipse. It is a symbiosis between nature and culture that recreates the soft luminous sensation of dusk or dawn.

At home or in the open air, Solar teams the emotions stirred by the light with the sculptural appeal of its shape. The light source is enclosed within a completely translucent hemisphere, the circular cross section of which is upturned and also used as a resting surface. The light appears to be compressed downwards, affording the effect of a diffused luminous glow, that is delicate and never glaring.

The two versions, depending on their intended use – whether indoor or outdoor – differ in some significant details. In the indoor model, the resting surface is slightly concave, with the edges slightly raised, while the outdoor version was designed with a flat surface flush with the edge, to allow the rain to slide off the surface. The surface finishes are also different: glossy white or dark wood for the indoor version, a textured material for the outdoor version.

Versatile in its intended settings, it is also designed to be tilted in several positions, providing different types of lighting and hence affording different atmospheres, depths and effects. The hemispherical body, made of waterproof and unbreakable polyethylene, remains perfectly stable even when it is tilted by 15°.”


These Solar are a wonderful way to add that dimension to your space. Enjoy the photos..!
