marc sadler: 'tress' for foscarini at milan design week 2009

foscarini will launch a new lamp by milan-based designer marc sadler at this year’s milan design week. ‘tress’ is made from interwoven threads that have been soaked in resin and cast in a long cylinder. the texture of the material is reminiscent of traditional woven fibres like baskets and high tech materials like carbon fibre. the lamp’s random interwoven patterns create distinctive shadows that are cast outwards. the lamp will be available in black and white.
