Looking for Illumination
By Babs Rodriguez
We like to imagine that the path we’d choose to follow through a forest filled with floor lamps would lead us to spots perfectly lit for reading, musing, relaxing and, yes, working. Tall, short, bright, diffuse, focused or overarching, we think all the just-right lights would eventually lead us home.
Happy birthday to Twiggy, the leggy cantilever lamp by Marc Sadler for Foscarini that launched an envious parade of wannabes. The new Twiggy Wood dresses up the iconic line by topping the slender carbon fiber stem with a limed durmast wood shade. The warm oak plus improved LED technology create a come-hither light. Frame is sold in greige and black, $2,116, Design Within Reach.
