A soap bubble delicate and ethereal that quivers in space by filling it with white light of the north: this is the image immediately evoked by YOKO, The new table lamp given by Foscarini for euroluce 2013.
Immaterial and ethereal, Simple and extremely refined: YOKO with the Norwegian designers Andersson & Voll reread the archetype of the table lamp and the tip in a bold reversal typological, resting on a gentle volume luminaire made of transparencies. The result is an intersection perfect, simple and lightweight, which is inspired by the image of a bubble in voltage that rests on the light source.
The essential Scandinavian style is emphasized by the choice of different colors, light and just mentioned, that recall the northern light and colored in shades of light reflected and the upper body.
YOKO is born and takes shape thanks to a long and accurate materials research and form, developed through countless tests played on a knife-millimeter, with meticulous attention to the curvature of the lines. Technology, extremely refined, plays a key role but remains hidden, hidden by thin line and the perfection of balance between the two volumes.
The development of the original concept, moved with great skill in an advanced process of industrialization - based on the technique of blown molding and on the choice of a material such as polymethylmethacrylate - Made it possible to create an object of immediate reading and strong personality.
The choice of the name, born dall'assonanza two syllables, similar but not identical, ideally emphasizes the dialogue between the two volumes of YOKO: a fascinating and balanced play of transparency that gives it a soft and vibrant in every corner of the house.
