IThe story of the collaboration between Foscarini and James Wines unfolds across a span of nearly 30 years, through several important phases, in a natural merging of respective poetics. Its roots date back to 1991, with Table Light / Wall Light, the first piece made by Foscarini with Winesâ SITE group, created for the cultural areas of the exhibition in Verona âAbitare il Tempoâ, curated in that period by Marva Griffin. Some years later, the paths of Foscarini and SITE crossed again, thanks to an extensive profile published in Inventario (the book-zine directed by Beppe Finessi, organised and supported by Foscarini), written by Michele Calzavara with coverage of the groupâs many projects. This led to Foscariniâs idea of reviving the first project, transforming it into a collection of editions of lamps and objects. Composed of a number of carefully selected pieces, in numbered limited editions, The Light Bulb Series is a signature collection of great value for the story it tells and the thinking it conveys. It is part of wider-ranging reflections on the light bulb as an archetype, with its typical form dictated by function and by the technology available at the time, which has remained constant for decades, in spite of the fact that technical evolution now makes it possible to adapt any form to the same function. After Milan, Reverse Room will be featured at the Foscarini Spazio Soho in New York, from 20 to 24 May during NYCxDesign and at One Room Gallery in London from 22 to 24 May, during Clerkenwell Design Week.
