Madre – Foscarini

September 9, 2019

Madre, meaning mother in Italian is a new table lamp designed by Andrea Anastasio for Foscarini. Inspired by ancient fertility vases, the design conveys light’s life-giving properties through its form (resembling the silhouette of hips), materials, and functionality. The table lamp serves double duty as a vase as its top integrates a heat-proofed concave that holds and preserves fresh flowers. A hole at the centre gives perspective at the same time reflect light even when the lamp is off.
