Satellight Table – Foscarini
Designed by Eugeni Quitllet. “I dreamed I was taking a piece of the sun to share it with the world, holding a ball of light in my hands. I captured the light under a glass bell so it couldn’t escape And I kept it for you. The form and concept of this light represent light’s pressure to escape and return to the sun. Satellight is a piece of light that is never trapped and continues to travel.” Eugeni Quitllet
A suspended luminous globe, like the moon in the night sky or a fragment of light that flies, seeking freedom. Satellight is a simple, immediately understandable object, but at the same time it is original and profound in its poetic lightness, that goes straight to the heart. The diffuser in handcrafted blown glass in a milk-white colour is inserted in the transparent body, also in blown glass, that as if by magic seems to support the luminous core of Satellight, capturing its light. The satin finish makes the diffuser like a “materic presence floating in the void” even when the lamp is off. When it is on, thanks to a dimmable LED source it transmits warm, soft, gentle light that never assaults the eyes of the observer, adding precious reflections to the shiny transparent glass of the enclosure. For the table it comes in two versions, one large, the other more compact, to make it easy to position in any space or situation. Satellight is also available in a suspension version.
