New to Inform: Foscarini Diesel Drumbox

Foscarini celebrated their 30th anniversary last year. Founded by Alessandro Vecchiato and Carlo Urbinati, in Foscarini's 31 year history, they have produced designs from such designers and architects such as Nendo, Patricia Urquiola, Marc Sadler, Tom Dixon, Werner Aisslinger, Anderson & Voll, Rodolfo Dordoni and Ludovica and Roberto Palomba to name a few. Foscarini as a company utilizes the idea and spirit of "pure emotion."

"It might be as simple as the fact that we like to focus on emotion. But it's also a deep consideration of what we're doing, where we're doing it and what we're offering. We strongly feel that we are a privileged people working on something that is really important - light." Carlo Urbinati. 

The new Foscarini Diesel Drumbox series was inspired by lighting used on photo shoots - all the way down to the detail that the material the drum is made from comes from the world of technical clothing. The shade is made of highly reflective treated linen teamed up with rip stop super lightweight polyester with heat-sealed seams like those on diving wetsuits. There are two variants - white for pale, diffused light customized with a fluorescent yellow sign or grey for a more marked contrast with the pail front section. Drumbox can be used anywhere and in anyway you like, as a table, suspension or floor lamp, on its own or in a group composition on a single tubular metal stem and in the most diverse settings.
