Mite by Foscarini features great dimensions, yet being light and thin. It is produced by using the technology involved in the production of golf clubs. Its spiral shape is the perfect combination between beauty and technology: by rolling up together glass fabric and carbon fibre this resistant and flexible lamp is obtained.

Mite, designed by Marc Sadler in 2000 for Foscarini, is a lamp that was awarded with the prestigious Compasso D’Oro prize in the following year. It is extremely versatile and gave birth to a whole range of products which nowadays are displayed all over the world as real light sculptures. Mite is the evidence of the fact that great ideas originate from small things.
