The Foscarini Lumiere Table LampThe Foscarini Lumiere Table Lamp A Marvel in Polished Glass

The Foscarini Lumiere Table Lamp by Rodolfo Dordoni is an exquisite three-legged lamp that adds style and panache to your desk or table. There are two versions available through Ferrious: the Lumiere 05 and the XXL and XXS versions, with the smaller Lumiere 05 produced in two sizes.

The Lumiere 05 was first produced in 1990, and has a silky smooth exterior constructed from expertly blown glass. It contains an inner layer of white, and an outer, coloured layer that is polished to a perfect sheen. This early version of the Foscarini Lumiere Table Lamp comes in four attractive hues: white, ivory, grey and amber, while its gently curved base can be finished in black chrome or polished aluminium, effectively giving buyers the choice of eight different looks. For a little extra, the Lumiere 05 lamp can be supplied with a dimmer.

In terms of dimensions, the piccolo version has a diameter of 20cm and a height of 35cm (with a 14cm high shade). It takes a single 42w (E14) halogen energy saver bulb. The grande version has a diameter of 26cm, and stands 45cm high (with a 17cm shade).  This lamp requires three 28w (E14) halogen energy saver bulbs.

Foscarini Lumiere XXL & XXS Wall LightNearly twenty years passed before the release of the Lumiere XXS and XXL in 2009. This new take on the 05 lamp displays more angular lines, with a less rounded shade and straighter legs. As if to emphasise its no-nonsense approach, the XXS and XXL lamp is produced in either black or white, with the base either constructed from bronze or white lacquered aluminium. At 26cm by 40cm, the XXS lamp is only slightly smaller than the grande 05 lamp, while the XXL version is much bigger at 37cm by 57cm.

Both lamps take 48w halogen bulbs, with the XXL model requiring three bulbs.
