A Super Thin Concrete Lamp From Foscarini

Several years ago, we featured the design process of the Aplomb pendant that Studio Lucidi & Pevere designed for Foscarini, and the Italian team is back with a new version called Aplomb Large. While they carry the same name and are both handcrafted by Italian artisans, the Aplomb Large takes on a completely new form. The wide, flattened silhouette, which could be compared to a UFO, is so thin it’s hard to imagine that it’s made of concrete, but they are.


The highly experienced artisans are able to create the lamp’s incredibly slim form while also achieving that concrete texture that we come to expect and enjoy from concrete products. Each pendant is outfitted with an LED light source that produces a wide beam of illumination onto the surface below.
