Allegro Assai Suspension Light - Foscarini
design by Atelier Oi in 2007
Allegro Assai is a suspension lamp made a group of lines that create an elegant, fascinating symphony in a suspended, almost magical equilibrium and give life to a new lamp designed to feature in large public and private spaces. Aluminium elements flow and combine together to give the lamp a light, bodiless effect.
Oscillation makes the aluminum elements vibrate and emit a soft, magical sound. This 'musicality' has inspired its names - Allegro ritmico, Allegro vivace and Allegro assai – three versions in different sizes and colors that can also be personalized on request. When used alone or in a group, Allegro is ideal for creating a visual focal point in any environment. It characterizes and enhances architecture. It gives a diffused downwards light that reflects off the ceiling.
About the Designer
The tr(oi)ka was founded by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond in La Neuveville, Switzerland, in 1991 under the label Atelier Oi. The main elements that characterise the atelier’s philosophy and work consist of its multidisciplinary nature. Orders come from the fields of architecture, design and scenography, and, most frequently, from between these different disciplines. Invited to various design schools in Switzerland and abroad, they hold a teaching position in the design department of Ecal (University of Art and Design Lausanne, Switzerland).
