These lamps proposed by Foscarini in an attempt to offer original lighting ideas for the home, office spaces or business premises, are quite unique and sophisticated. They are exquisite designer collections that use patterns of light, experimenting with new shapes and technology. A constant evolution that has led to the creation and variation of furnishing accessories with a unique, exclusive style. The Mite lamps are a prime example and were awarded the renowned Compasso d'Oro prize in 2001. The Mite floor lamp is the result of the close working collaboration between Foscarini and well-known French designer, Marc Sadler. The maximum height is 1.85 m and it stands out for its tapered, circular shapes that get bigger towards the top. The structure exudes an air of lightness and the material used is the innovative result of constant technological research aimed at experimenting and new types of usage, creating new paths in contemporary design development. The entire structure of the lamp is in fact in fibre glass and carbon fibre, also known as Klevar: this material is normally used for the production of golf clubs and is patented by another famous brand: Dupont. The creativity of Foscarini has given this material a new potential use, transforming it into a designer product that suits modern, contemporary furnishing styles. A thread of Klevar is wrapped around to create essential, linear shapes that express a feeling of lightness. This floor lamp version is perfect in any room where light is considered an integral part of the overall design. The long diffuser is part of the lamp body itself and gives off a soffused, vertical light, highlighting the decorative aspect of the horizontal lines that define the entire item, giving it a touch of vitality. Every detail is superbly finished, and the lamp is composed of several elements including steel, aluminium and nickel-plated metal. The smooth, circular base measures up to 21 cm in diameter and enhances the beauty of Mite. It is not an exclusive designer lamp but a true furnishing accessory in its own right, which will give a touch of sophistication and personality to any room. Mite is fitted with a dimmer switch to ensure just the right amount of light in any moment. It can also be fitted with either halogen or LED light bulbs, while the colours available are two: yellow or black.
