DIESEL WITH FOSCARINI
Along with the copper obsession, this also seems like a good point to acknowledge an obsession with lighting in general - that is, sculptural pieces, with a focus on fabulous materials. (Think: Tom Dixon. I am basically obsessed with Tom Dixon’s lights.)
Which brings me to the Diesel Home Collection, as spotted on Design Milk. The Successful Living collection includes furniture, lighting and textiles, and the lighting collection is once again in collaboration with Foscarini. Personal favourites include Cage (second photo), a design inspired by the lamps of miners; Glas (top), an industrial style with a sleek finish in blown glass and metal; and Rock (fourth photo), a design inspired by volcanic rock. These individual lighting ranges may not be new - all were launched in 2009 - but the colours and finishes on display here feel seductive all over again.
