DIESEL X FOSCARINI SHOWCASE: RELICS FROM THE NEXT FUTURE
The success of the creative partnership between fashion label Diesel and renowned Italian lighting company Foscarini has since proved any skeptics of this union wrong. With a growing collection of lighting that pushes conceptual and material boundaries, they continue to create pieces that reference a dark and industrial futurism, while still drawing from the formative and familiar history of twentieth century design. They recently announced their newest additions to the Successful Living lighting line in April of this year at an innovative showing they named ‘Relics from the Next Future‘. As described on their website,
An explorer from the future returns to the present. This is the journey that Diesel offered to present its home collection in the spaces of Superstudio Più, at Fuorisalone 2011. The Diesel Lighting collection – created in partnership with Foscarini – and the furnishing elements were presented as relics, memories of a time which, in reality, has not yet passed, to create metaphors of modern life.
Here is a preview of the inventive new line by Diesel x Foscarini and what was showcased at Relics From the Next Future.
