Flos Foglio

Continuing our unending search for the perfect wall light we submit Foglio by Tobia Scarpa for Flos. Amazingly the Foglio, an unerringly modern object, was designed in 1966. The idea being to contain two 100w light bulbs in as simple a structure as possible. The result is a light that is surprisingly large, made of steel and delivers very bright partially diffused light. For a large light the Foglio takes up very little visual space as its fluid form seems to meld not only with the wall’s surface but also with the sensibilities of almost any room, of almost any period. This is a light that looks good on the wall of the most modern house or the wall of a Victorian apartment, this is a light that would look on the wall of a caveman’s cave. The Foglio is available in white, shiny black and polished chrome, all with a white interior and has now been updated to work perfectly with bright dimmable LED’s. This is a light for those who like great design to be noticed as a result of fulfilled purpose.

Tobia Scarpa was born in 1935 in Italy. The son of architect Carlo Scarpa, Tobia has spent his career working almost exclusively in Italy and almost entirely in collaboration with his wife Afra. Tobia and Afra both went to school at the Instituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice and in the late 1950s began their joint career, working with the Venini glass works. In 1960 they opened their own design office in Montebelluna where they concentrated on furniture built with an appreciation for sumptuous materials combined with comfort and elegance. These designs though appearing simpler and more classical than some of their contemporary counterparts still utilised the most modern materials and construction methods and attracted people who wanted modern furniture that could coexist with the antiques that still decorated their homes. This timelessness has become Scarpa’s signature look and is even evident in his award winning architecture, interiors and product design.

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects out of light. Light is the medium they work in order to express new ideas and illuminate emotions. Flos see the future, embrace the past and live in the present, facing the challenges and choices that have shaped their image and identity. History has taught them to fan the flames of provocation into new poetic notions of functionality, to trust intuition, to dare to create products that no one else would and to establish new typologies and archetypes. Flos are connected to the old masters of design yet happy to promote new talents, to command high technological status, to be revered for what they have done and what they might yet do. Flos open the way through experimentation and the use of revolutionary materials, they strive to conceive new languages around light and to chart new aesthetics, new freedoms for living. Flos walk the fine line between art and design, craftsmanship and industry, between an individual idea and the collective imagination.
