A Lamp that Gives New Meaning to “Diamond in the Rough”

Arumi by Foscarini

Design duo Lucidi Pevere experimented with unconventional materials as a foundation of the suspension lamp. The outer layer is “rough around the edges”, made of raw aluminum in creating a rugged texture. A discreet inner shade is constructed using a contrasting shiny and smooth metal to reflect warm rays from the LED light source. A sleek metal ring at the rim adds even more texture and complexity to the lamp. The over-all experimentation with materials makes Arumi’s dome shape resemble that of a raw diamond when lit up, fitting into an array of contract settings.
