Foscarini and Diesel

I've always been a fan of Italian lighting designers, Foscarini. They produce some beautiful designs. It was always a treat when the rep popped by the office with a smoked glass pendant, or the like, as most of the pieces are better appreciated in the flesh.
My favourite design from Foscarini's product range still has to be Allegro (2007), though I am delighted to see that last year, they launched Allegretto, a smaller version more suitable for domestic interiors (although definitely still an 'investment piece'!)



In 2009, Foscarini paired up with Italian fashion label Diesel to create a range called Successful Living and the result is pretty spectacular. A Diesel store opened in Glasgow when i was a teenager so of course it was THE place to shop, but i soon grew out of the clothes (and so did my chest!)
The young, industrial edginess of the fashion label has fused with Foscarini's elegant design and masterful use of materials, namely glass, producing some stunning pieces.
