"Twiggy Surprise"

Twiggy is a thin and natural mark in space which, thanks to its slightness, brings to mind the image of a fishing pole. Its name recalls the most famous model of the 1960s, but its great expressive appeal associates her with a sort of bamboo cane found along riverbanks, which moves and then finds its place with lightness and versatility. Sophisticated and flexible, it illuminates the interiors of Palazzo Moroni. With its simple and extremely clean lines, Twiggy fills up the space with its unique personality. Foscarini’s smash hit, this iconic lamp designed by Marc Sadler unveils and covers its shape in a game of hide and seek.
