For Lluis Porqueras, design entailed eliminating the unnecessary until only essentials remained: beautiful, useful, and simple. This was exactly the case with the Funiculi lamp, a 1979 design that Marset reissued in 2013 and which has become emblematic of the collection.
Lightweight, it takes up almost no space and can be used as an ambient lamp or as direct light, depending on the direction of the beam. This lamp’s designer designed the shade to give it maximum mobility. You can rotate it 360 degrees to direct the light where you need it, and it has a double clamp system for height adjustment. The Funiculi has stood the test of time for 40 years, and now comes in new colors that expand its possibilities. It is no longer only available in the neutrals moss grey, black and off-white.
The new colours – mustard yellow, terracotta and green – are intense. They are design statements, highlighting the shapes of the Funiculí and bringing chromaticism to the space. The new shades are cheerful and vivid, conveying that colour can also be essential.
