In partnership with the Italian lighting company Foscarini, ECAL Master Product Design students worked on new lamp projects developed around the concept of portable light.
ECAL and Foscarini, an Italian company of reference in the field of decorative design lighting, present an exhibition of projects by students of the second year of the Master Product Design programme at Palazzo Litta. This selection of works was developed at ECAL on the basis of a brief provided by Foscarini, with the aim of stimulating creativity and design thinking. The students were asked to work on new ideas for lamps, starting from concepts of portable light and mobility, imagining how light can accompany our movements through space.
Foscarini has supported the ECAL students throughout the design process: from the understanding of the brief to intermediate reviews, all the way to interventions to address problematic issues and stimulate alternative solutions.
Nine lamps creating nine different moods were finally selected, each with its own features related to its shape and aesthetics as well as to the use of distinctive materials, ranging from cast aluminum to silk, including wood or ripstop nylon.
