Fos­carini Allergo Lamps For Light Music

For an art installation at the Swiss Cultural Center in Milan earlier this year, a Swiss-based architecture firm Atelier Oï planned to combine its interests in music and design to create a series of lamps that could be played like instruments.

For the first installation, in Milan, the challenge was to find the right sound for every lamp, which meant experimenting in our workshop with different lengths, weights, and grades of aluminum. It’s a bit like thinking with your hands rather than your head.

Each version comes in three sizes with a gold, bronze, or anthracite finish.

It was really difficult to find a system for hanging the wires. We worked with Foscarini to develop a piece on which all the tubes can be clipped. Now when you buy this product it comes flat-packed and easy to build at home.

There are two light sources: one that hangs vertically, which can use an energy-efficient bulb, and an indirect one closer to the ceiling.

They used aluminum because it’s lightweight, which is an important factor in constructing a lamp, especially when it’s suspended from the ceiling.

When They built the installation, They shaped the wires by hand using a negative mold. Now Foscarini does it the industrial way, with machines in a factory near Venice.
