The elastic and coloured graphic appeal of Twiggy is an unmistakable sign in space, an exemplary marriage between the designer’s eclectic creativity and Foscarini’s research in the field of materials and technologies. Suspended on a detachable rod made of composite material, flexible like a fishing rod, eight adjustable using a system of counterweights, Twiggy is a simple and genius idea, which has become an Foscarini icon and awarded outstanding success among both the public and the critics. The diffuser guarantees direct lighting in the area underneath the lamp and - thanks to the transparency of the upper protection disk - diffuses a cosy ambient light. This lighting emotion is also vouched by Led version – affording high energy efficiency levels and durability - completely re-engineered in terms of lighting technology especially to ensure the same intensity, diffusion and temperature as the light produced by the original version.
French citizen born in Austria, Marc Sadler currently lives in Milan. Experimentation with plastics has often formed a key part of his activity. He already showed a strong curiosity for the subject choosing it for his thesis at ENSAD in Paris. Citizen of the world (he has lived and worked for many years in Europe, North America and Asia), he is a consultant for companies in the fields of home furnishings, large and small household appliances, lighting, technically advanced products, and sports.
At the beginning of the seventies, he perfect the first ski-boot in thermo plastic material completely recyclable, subsequently commercialized by the Italian firm Caber (later known as Lotto). He quickly gains the responsibility of the entire collections and starts a long and fruitful collaboration which led to the patenting of the ski-boot with a symmetric shell, which was for many years the most widely-sold ski-boot in the world. This is the origin of his specialization as a sports designer, which led to close collaboration with the most important multinational sport companies in the United States, Asia, and Europe, both in the sport shoes and in other sport fields: ski, tennis rackets, golf clubs, etc. Working in this sector, which has often pioneered research into new materials and techniques, provided the experience to enable him to bring innovation to more traditional areas where is set a concept of design as pure aesthetic shape.
