Diesel with Foscarini Metal Glass Suspension Lamp
Diesel Creative Team
Metal Glass is the newest collaboration between iconic Italian fashion brand Diesel and Italian lighting design house Foscarini. A contemporary restyling of a traditional glass crafting process, this dense material is brimming with unique expressive characteristics.
The personality of Metal Glass is expressed in the pasty composition of the glass, distinguished by a dense and almost opaque texture. This effect is achieved by pouring soda powder onto the vitreous paste before the blowing process, causing a chemical reaction that creates a series of air bubbles trapped inside the glass. This highly textured appearance is transformed and brought to life with light, which animates the air bubbles with multiple faceting, and emphasizes the special glass working process.
Metal Glass is available in two shapes, each with its own colour palette: Shape 1 is available in grey or amber, Shape 2 is available in grey or green.
